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.

Cathy Rohm,Tevis Cup,Sleep Patterns, and Kayaks

"It takes courage to grow up and turn out to be who you really are."
– e. e. Cummings

On 4 July, Tony, Debbie, Linda and I went kayaking on Loon Lake. This was our first of the year. Coming home, that evening, I decided I wanted to go to a hard shell kayak . The plan  for the weekend was to try out hard shell kayaks. Yes, Linda bought a  hard shell kayak and we bought a new kayak trailer. We decided that a kayak trailer was more practical than a roof carrier.  I’m still looking for my kayak. I will keep you posted.

On July 6, Tony and I went to Dru Barner. The Gold Country Endurance Riding Association  was putting on an endurance ride along with a ride and tie. Going there , gave the both of us a chance to see friends that we haven’t seen for a while. While there, we ran a 10 mile loop along with the 10 mile ride and tie  entrants. On our run, Tony was passed by Jim Mather’s ride and tie  team. As Jim passed Tony, he replied, “I finally passed an old guy.” Needless to say, that motivated Tony.

 On Saturday, I also had a chance to talk to future guests on our TV talk show. I talked with Jim Mather, Langdon Fielding ,Kathy Perry and Dale Lake about their interest and availability .Our next TV show on the 11th, will feature Tevis Cup winner Cathy Rohm.


The November 14, 2012 edition of the Wall Street Journal had an article pertaining to NFL teams and player sleep patterns. Sleep is a big problem for many of us. The NFL is not immune to this problem either. These professional teams travel between time zones and that can complicate sleep cycles. Going from the Eastern time zone to a Pacific time zone causes problems for most teams. So one thing that the teams are doing ,for the players, is setting the temperature at 68° in the hotel rooms. We know that it’s easier to fall asleep when it’s cooler. Just by going to bed earlier doesn’t always work.

This past week, the temperatures soared to triple digits and did not cool off enough during the night. As a result, it was difficult to get a good night’s sleep. Some of the side effects of not getting enough sleep, for me, include being short tempered, tired and grouchy. So consider setting your temperature for at least 68 during evening, and hopefully that will help with your sleep cycle.

Remember to keep moving, laughing, smiling and deep breathing.
