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.

Western States 100,World Class Runners and Secretariat

Last Sunday, Secretariat, Carrie Barrett and I ran from Forest Hill to White Oak Flat a distance of 19 miles as part of the Western States 100 training run.  At registration, I introduced Carrie to Greg Soderlund the race director.  I told him that one of Carrie’s ride and tie partner’s was Mark Richtman.  For those of you who are not familiar with his name, Mark is a world-class runner.  Greg commented that Mark kept a 400 yard lead on Megan Arbogast (US record holder for 50 miles) for 50 miles at the Jed Smith race. Secretariat and I remembered that Jed Smith race in February since we were there too.
For Secretariat and I this was our training run for this Saturday’s 25Km from the Overlook in Auburn to Cool and back. Saturday we will be joined by Randall and Diane, Michelle, and hopefully Marty.
Before today’s tapering run, Secretariat, e-mailed me about the 100 mile, 12 hour, 6 hour or 9 mile run at the Olmsted in August.  He thought we should do the 6 hour event which means running 3 to 4 times around the 9 mile loop.  He told me he did not like to run loops.  Did he forget?
This Thursday, I have been invited to speak at the Lincoln Hills Community Association in Lincoln, California.  My speech will address well-being, exercise and the brain.  I am going to mention such things as ride and tie, Western States 100, Lew Hollander , Russ Kiernan etc.
Part 6 Of Finding the Fountain of Youth to be posted Wednesday.
