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.

Tango,Randall,Sports Medicine and Martin Hoffman M.D.

"In all affairs, it's a healthy thing now and then to hang a question mark on the things you have long taken for granted."
– Bertrand Russell

Congratulations go to Debbie. Her new Russian Arabian Tango just passed his pre-purchase veterinarian exam. Tango was being evaluated for a neurological condition called Wobbles. Tony, read up on the condition and put her horse through all types of tests. Last Saturday, I suggested that he  blindfold the horse and make his assessment. According to Tony, the horse was sound and  fine. But Tuesday, they got a second  professional opinion. The veterinarians agreed with Tony that the horse was fine.             

So this means that Debbie will begin riding after many years of layoff. Tony threatened Debbie by saying if she’s not going to ride Tango, he’s going to in the Tevis next year. Linda is happy because now she has another riding partner. This also means that very likely “ the girls” will be riding their horses  on the trail and “the guys” will be running on the trail after them.

Randall, one of our injured running friends, is beginning his rehab after a long rest. He is now beginning to walk with a little running mixed in. Randall stated that his motivation is good and that he can’t wait to run a marathon distance next year. Hopefully, Randall well slowly work his way back into running shape without a hitch. It so difficult for some, not to push the envelope. Sometimes , a competitive nature can get in the way of sound judgment. It’s important that he doesn’t do too much too soon. Easing back slowly after six month or so layoff is a prudent thing to do. I continue to tell Randall to be smart. There’s no shortage of running events and next year, there will be likely  more. Return to running shape Randall, so you can join us.

Thursday’s TV Guest on It Has Nothing to Do with Age or Gender is Sports Medicine Martin Hoffman, M.D. This physician has done research connected with the Western States 100 endurance run. All you runners, and active individuals, view what he has to say.

Join Tony and I Saturday for a 35k trail run at Folsom  Point.

In the meantime, keep moving, laughing, smiling, deep breathing, bonding, and loving.
