It Has Nothing To Do With Age provides self-help principles. The inspirational stories give concrete illustrations of overcoming many of life's challenges. Difficulties pertaining to depression, grief, divorce, and death are presented and worked through by the participants. Physical impairments, injuries, overcoming issues with weight, alcohol, and nicotine are also dealt with and resolved by the athletes.

This book provides a model on how to overcome some of the difficulties that confront all of us . Further, this read sheds a beacon of light on preventive measures for good physical and mental health. Research demonstrates that exercise is an important component in treating such ailments and debilitating illness such as depression, stroke, heart disease, brain or cognitive malfunction,and Alzheimer's disease.

I suggest that proper exercise can be used as a preventive measure for psychological, cognitive, and physical health as well. Follow my prescription and lead a better, more fulfilling, and healthier life.

Tevis Cup, Hawaiian Ironman, and Molokai Hoe

"It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg."– C. S. Lewis

Just yesterday, Michael told me that the Tevis  Cup endurance ride  is now starting at the Overlook (in Auburn) , proceeding to Michigan Bluff, doing a short loop in that area, and  then returning to the Overlook.  We all know that the original Tevis date in July was canceled due to unfavorable trail conditions like snow. After much deliberation and controversy, an October 8th date was settled upon.  Who would have predicted that there would be rain and snowfall the week of October 2nd?  In any event, there is a considerable amount of snow on the earlier part of the original trail .Okay, what shall this ride be called?  You can call this ride by any name.  It certainly is going to be a different ride, and like no other in Tevis’ illustrious history.

The other two events covered in my book It Has Nothing to Do With Age, the Molokai to Oahu Outrigger canoe race and the Hawaiian Iron man are also scheduled for this weekend.  We know there is not going to be a bit of the snow during both of these events that are held in the Hawaiian Islands.  Good luck and good fortune to my friends Lew Hollander, Doc Shay and Sammie Stanbro. These special people are athletic, competitive, and mentally tough.   How else would you explain their athletic achievements at their youthful age?  They are also competitive and mentally tough, away from sports as well.

On another note, my book signing is scheduled for October 15, at the Auburn Running Company and is also supported by Dan Tebbs of the Victory Vello bike shop in Auburn.  The address is 833 and 835 Lincoln Way, Auburn, California respectively. Join us between 3 and 5 PM.

I missed a golden opportunity talk about China’s remedy for stressed workers to the Rotary group this past Wednesday.  If you followed one of my previous blogs, I talked about the Hoohah chant during calisthenics.   The aim was to inspire more grunting from China’s ever-growing stressed-out modern workers.  Apparently, grunting increases the enthusiasm while doing the calisthenics and other exercises.  If you need more enthusiasm for your workouts, consider grunting or come up with your own mantra. And as my friend Ed Budde says “keep moving”.
