“It Has Nothing to Do with Age” is a book about individuals who push themselves to physical extremes and who believe they have defied the aging process. If you are at least 30, 40, 50 years of age, join them in such sports as: theTevis Cup, the Dipsea, the Western States 100, the 100 mile ride and tie, the Hawaiian Ironman, the Molokai to Oahu Outrigger canoe race, and national and international rowing.
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.

After the Boston Marathon
"The man who makes no
mistakes does not usually make anything." – William Connor Magee
Tony and I have registered for this Sunday’s, Minors Revenge
Marathon, and I hope that Jonathan joins us for this trail running event. This
week we have been tapering and I will let you know about my effectiveness. One
idea on tapering is to run relatively short distances at a fast clip. This past
week I have cut my distances considerably, but not my pace. I should be well
On another note, there is going to be a change for Wolverine
football this fall. Previously, Jim Brandstatter had been handling the color,
on the radio. Jim is one of the football players that I profiled in my manuscript
“Bo’s Warriors.” Jim will be now handling play-by-play and joined by Dan
Dierdorf. Dan was an All-American at Michigan and has been inducted into the
professional football Hall of Fame. He recently retired from CBS. Incidentally,
Dan was born in Canton, Ohio.
I talked with Jim about Dan’s joining him in the booth and
he’s excited. These former teammates played the same offensive position-tackle
under Bo Schembechler. In any event, Go Blue!
In the meantime, keep moving, smiling, laughing, bonding,
loving and appreciating as it’s good for you Minors revenge.
