.Is it possible? Yes. I had a cousin that died of a heart attack at age 13. Though he had a heart condition. If it really concerns you see a doctor and have him do a test when your heart rate is high. He'll have you do jumping jacks or something to get the rate up. Chances are it's probably normal

Probably normal. Everyone's heart get's fast after running and working out. Sometimes mine gets fast but it's normal.
