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.

Frank Lieberman - Part 1

Frank Lieberman is mentally and physically strong, tough, athletic, health conscious and competitive.  He is goal oriented, persevering, determined and passionate, while defying his age.  Born on November 26, 1939 in Detroit, Michigan, this PhD psychologist is about 5’9” tall and weighs approximately 165 pounds.
I am Frank Lieberman and these pages contain the profile of my life as a senior ultra athlete.  My purpose here is not only to entertain and educate you about my path and the journey of other ultra-athletes, but to also give you inspiration and guidance in your own life.  Your goal may not be ultra sports, but perhaps just making that one step forward toward a healthier, more joyful life.
In the year 2000 at the age of 60, I completed the Tevis Cup, a 100 mile endurance horse event over the Sierra Nevada Mountains.  This is a grueling challenge that must be accomplished within 24 hours to qualify for completion.  At the age of 62, I was a division winner in the 100 mile Western States Endurance Run, the ultra marathon known as the toughest on the planet.  These two events have attracted a remarkable range of competitors from all over the globe, and I am one of about 45 individuals in the world to have earned belt buckles in both the Tevis Cup and the Western States 100 mile Endurance Run.
At the age of 68, I came in first place in the Swanton Pacific 100 mile Ride & Tie along with team members Jonathan Jordan, and my Arabian mare “Gypsy.”  A Ride & Tie is three athletes-two people, and one horse-competing over a designated distance; one person runs and the other rides, and then they trade-off during the competitive race.
With those three accomplishments, I became one of only four individuals in the world to have completed the Tevis Cup, the 100 mile Western States Endurance Run, and the Swanton Pacific 100 Mile Ride & Tie. Proudly, I am the only individual in their 60s to have ever completed these three events.
