Dennis Hengge, who will be 65 in May, runs near his Pembroke Pines home on Sunday, Feb. 12, 2017. Dennis was a longtime marathon runner when he started feeling shortness of breath and noticed his heart was sustaining a fast rate even after he’d stopped running. He learned he had superventricular tachycardia, an extremely rapid heart rhythm that renders the heart unable to pump blood and can lead to cardiac arrest. After getting treated at Memorial Hospital, he has begun to run again.
