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.

Bo's Warriors- Acknowledgements

This post comes from my manuscript, Bo’s Warriors- Bo Schembechler and the Transformation of Michigan Football to be published by Triumph Books towards the end of the summer.
This book would not have been possible without the assistance of a number of special individuals. I began with my wife, Linda. A few years ago, she was riding her horse Nails and I was running alongside them on the Olmsted trail. She said to me that I was mentally tough. The idea planted a seed in me, and I began researching it. Then, I Incorporated my model into my Western States 100-Mile Endurance Run in 2002. After refining the concept of mental toughness, I published and gave presentations about my experience with it during my Western States Ultra.
It was then that I began to think about writing a book. It was a natural extension to write about the mental toughness of football players-especially those from the University of Michigan. A very special thanks goes to Mike Keller. With his quickness, he took the ball running, with blazing speed. He then lateralled the ball to Jim Brandstatter. From there, the ball was passed to Reggie McKenzie, Fritz Seyferth, Thom Darden, Gary Moeller, and Jim Betts, and then taken by Frank Gusich for touchdown. Finally, Tom Curtis made an interception to save the win and the project was completed. He was a team accomplishment and credit goes to this unique group of men. My gratitude goes to them.
Tom Bast of Triumph Books move the Sierra Nevada Mountains to get this book published this year. And I can’t forget Mitch Rogatz, Adam Motin, and the rest of the staff at Triumph for making this project a reality.

PS I’m sorry to report that Tony and Debbie lost their border collie Hope last week. She was a neat dog and will be missed.
