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.

"The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing."– Albert Einstein
Last Thursday I presented a paper titled Exercise and the Brain at the prestigious, spiritual, and cultural Chautauqua Inst. in New York state founded in the late 1800s.  I must say that the grounds were spectacular, and the setting out of this world with its old Victorians, interesting looking seasoned trees, with a beautiful view of Lake Chautauqua.  Also, my talk was well attended and went quite well.  Linda told me this presentation was my best ever.  I thanked her for that.
After spending four delightful days there, we played tourists and traveled to Niagara-on-the-Lake and hiked near and around the magnificent Niagara Falls. Although many people have said that the Falls are more spectacular on the Canadian side, both Linda and I enjoyed hiking and viewing the Falls on the American side.  While staying at a resort and spa at Niagara-on-the-Lake, I learned something valuable.  I spent 30 minutes on a treadmill and was able to tolerate it much better than spending an hour.  In other words, if I am on a treadmill for an hour, I look constantly at the time and cannot wait till I get off.  By reducing the time to half an hour, my experience of the treadmill was significantly better.  The idea of going to a fitness facility seems much more reasonable to me at this point.
By the way, Canada is celebrating the 200th year anniversary of the War of 1812.  The Canadian point of view or perception is very different from ours.  According to their historical facts, the British won the war by keeping the territory in and around Fort George that is located in Ontario.  The US forces at that time, from Fort Niagara were repelled and the territory remained and controlled by the British.  Once again, perception is reality.  One’s perception can differ from person to person, and sometimes has nothing to do with facts.  So in essence, what we perceive is our reality but not necessarily the truth.
I am pleased that Secretariat posted a picture of his mother on yesterday’s blog.  I encouraged him to post more pictures.  I bet he will.
Well, it is time to hit the trail and take Digger, my wire haired carrier, with me for about a 10 mile run.  Remember, keep moving.
