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.

Trail Running, Kayaking and Podcast Interview

"I just kept on doing what everyone starts out doing. The real question is, why did other people stop?"– William Stafford

Last Saturday Carrie, Randall, Diane, Secretariat and I got up early and did a trail run. We ran from my house to Green Gate (Western States Trail). On the way back, we took the Dead Truck Trail, crossed American Canyon Creek on the way to Poverty Bar (the Tevis crossing) as Carrie hadn’t seen it before. Reaching Maine Bar, Carrie, Secretariat and I decided to separate from Randall and Diane. Randall wanted to get in additional miles (2) so they took the river trail to Brown’s bar and headed home from there. The three of us were content to do the Maine Bar climb even though the temperature started to heat up. During our run, of about 10 miles, all of us encouraged Secretariat to hydrate because of his affliction. He has been very good about his hydration. In fact I have not seen him drink a beer for some time.
Yesterday, Secretariat, Debbie, Linda and I went kayaking. We drove to Negro Bar one of the aid stations on the American River 50 endurance run. There, we launched our kayaks. Going upstream we had to deal with the current and of course all the rocks and boulders in and around the lake. We had fun along with a good exercise day.
Today, I am going to be interviewed by Franco Finn -radio TV podcast at 6:15 PM. The focus of the interview is going to be related to “It Has Nothing to Do with Age.” I’m looking forward to it. Listen to us at this website  and/or call 877-699-4662 with comments.
