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.

Diane,Randall,Lew and Carrie -All Winners

"We are made to persist. That's how we find out who we are."– Tobias Wolff
Randall and Diane
Congratulations go to Diane and Randall Harris as they have completed their first marathon. On the 13th, they ran the Dick Collins marathon in the Bay Area. For Randall, he did well since the previous month he had surgery on his retina which interfered with his training. As he was recovering, Diane was getting stronger and stronger .in fact, Diane finished roughly 10 minutes in front of Randall. I told Randall that this run was a training run so he could join me for the 50 K. Way Too Cool race next March. Last March, Secretariat, Diane and Randall belt out many popular Beatles, Eagles, and Beach Boys songs from the Goat Hill aid station to the finish. I told Randall that he is going to have to bring his guitar this time for that race.
Lew Hollander
Also on the 13th, congratulations go to Lew Hollander who completed another Hawaiian iron man. one might wonder what’s so special about that? Well, Lew was born on June 6, 1930. He completed his first Hawaiian Iron man in 1985. This man has completed 23 out of 23 Hawaiian Ironman’s. Lew had competition this year as he finished third in his age group. To find out more about this remarkable young man, I refer you to Chapter 10 in “It Has Nothing To Do With Age.”
Further, Carrie Barrett and partner  came in first place in the ride and tie in Cool on the 13th. Way to go Carrie.  Mark Richtman and Mary Tiscornia came in a close second. Mark recently recovered from an injury and was not his usual running self. He wasn’t making any excuses. However it was clear to me that he ran slower.
For me, I ran with Matt and Farah on the 9 mile loop. Secretariat was invited  to join us but declined because he said he was just too tired  .I was pleased  with my run as I am slowly building up my distances as a result of my Achilles rehabilitation. This week I plan to increase my distance to run between 10 and 12 miles and then evaluate. So far I’m doing well.
A Tired Secretariat
Remember, keep moving.
