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 2

If you are an equestrian, you would more than likely know about the Tevis Cup.  If you were an ultra endurance runner, you would be familiar with the Western states Run.  If you knew about both endurance riding, and an ultra running, you might be knowledgeable about Ride & Tie.  Similarities in each of these events are as follows: all take place on mountain trails and are 100 miles in distance; each event has about a 50% completion rate; all three were created within the last 60 years; and they are known as the grandfathers of their sport. Each of these events has competitor entry criteria, and each has a completion time cut off, and each is too completed within one day.  Both Ride & Tie and the Tevis Cup have a 24-hour time limit, while the Western States Endurance Run has a 30 -hour cut- off.

It is likely that most people do not know about these three extreme amateur sports or the other unique sport activities found in this book.  As you read these chapters you will discover what drives the men and women who compete in these difficult sports known as the Dipsea and the Hawaiian Ironman, details about the sports themselves, and about the history of the competitions. The water sports of outrigger canoe paddling, rowing, and sculling round out the list of extreme competitions.
I believe the individuals in this book, all ranging in age from 65 to 85 are interesting, inspiring, compassionate, driven, and disciplined people.  Yes, they had accomplished incredible feats in their senior years, but they are also mortals faced with the typical challenges we all confront in life-financial woes, family issues, divorce, health problems, and even death.  As life deals out these cards, sometimes it is those challenges that cause people to push themselves, ultimately escalating to ultra sports.
As I have experienced from writing this book, I hope they you will also identify and draw strength from these inspirational stories.  I encourage you to use the information to your advantage, and let these role models assist you in establishing a roadmap for developing meaning and passion in your life.  It is never too late to begin.
