Tillamook,Hawaii Ironman, and Moloka -Outrigger Canoe Race

"When patterns are broken, new worlds emerge."– Tuli Kupferberg
I agree with Tuli.  However, I want to share my dilemma with you.  Secretariat has a secret that I am going to share with you.  The secret is called Tillamook, with Mountain Huckleberry as the flavor.  Yes, it is premium ice cream from the great Northwest. The taste will transform you.  You may never want another brand of ice cream again after tasting  this  delicious treat.

To continue yesterday’s book review on It Has Nothing To Do with Age.  Also notice the links on the blog.

 Next we meet Russ Kiernan who won the Dipsea Race. Meeting Jack Kirk would help Russ, as he became his mentor and trainer. Using Jack’s techniques even after he passes away does much to help him when he competes in a Ride and Tie and 28 more competitions. Can you feel the energy? Next the author tells the reader about his 2nd Ride and Tie: THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP in 1998. What he does and the pain he endured just to enter was totally remarkable. In 1999 he and Steve Anderson his Ride and Tie partner entered together and ran a trail. Learning about the 3rd Annual Marathon was next. Never stopping and always looking for the next race and competition to enter. The history of the Tevis was really interesting first awarded in 1959.

His friend Jim Steere’s story was quite compelling and interesting. A vet for large animals, learning about his early life, his memories, the tough discipline invoked by his father and how his mother came to the rescue for him and his horse Lady, will definitely endear you to him. Jim spent time with his dad while in High School was impacted by December 7, 1941 and even jointed the Air Corps. But, let’s get back to the important stuff: At 80 years young in 2008 this man became the oldest rider to compete and yes COMPLETE THE TEVIS! How cool is that! Jim was competitive and liked to finish his events and what he started. To learn more about him you need to read Chapter 7. You didn’t think I was going to tell you everything and spoil your fun of reading it yourself. Read both Chapters 8 and 9 to learn more about the Tevis and how 9/11 impacted his life and others.

Dr. Iron man: Lew Hollander was born in 1930 and believe it or not at the young age of only 54 he completed the 100 mile Western States Run. At 65 believe it or not he was the oldest winner of an Iron man Competition in Japan. Read about him and his navy career and you will be totally inspired. Now, get up, walk, and run, that couch has a huge dent in the middle where you have been sitting and watching too much TV. Move! Are you not inspired by what I have written? Okay: This should do it I hope!

Life after the Western States Run is Chapter 11, and then the Third Hurdle the 100- mile Ride and Tie follows. One thing you have to admire about Frank he never lacks women or companionship. This man has more drive and energy than most 20 year olds.

To be continued……
