From 1977, the start of an open 440 dash. Me in lane one (the second worst lane) at the very start.

Difficult to see…but in watching the old video yesterday, i pulled off the win.

Stumbled on stuff from 1977.

It reminds me how unconventionally i ran as a teen.

It’s almost unheard of to run negative splits – where your second half is faster than the first half.

Disney brought out my unconventional in ways i never saw coming.

Thank you Walt and Roy.

As You Get Older

Who’s the most important member of your healthcare team?

Healthy and active aging
Healthy and active aging is possible. Just ask 93-year-old Dixon Hemphill (L) and 100-year-old Orville Rogers (R). And it requires a lifetime commitment once you decide to start. You can start at any time, but quitting is not conducive to lifetime wellness.

 

 

Who’s the most important member of your healthcare team?

Family Doctor?

Dentist?

Optometrist?

Specialist(s)?

As we age, we have the increased odds of having a larger team.

So your answer?

You are the most important member of your healthcare team.

Go.

Be well.

PS. Link to the sprint rematch two days ago. And a bonus featuring 102-year old Hurricane Hawkins – setting the 100m and 60m world records.

Every morning i weigh myself twice, to ensure accuracy.

i log that, plus the number of hours i slept.

Using the Notes App on the iPhone, it gets loaded into the cloud and it can be accessed from any of my devices.

It’s permanent and a paperless record – to help me see progress as well as identify causes and effects.

Find a million ways to stay motivated.

Dear Son

A simple change made it a vastly different experience

A simple change made it a vastly different experience.

We warmed up and began the first interval like usual. Then i changed the distance and recovery periods to half of normal.

Shorter distance and recovery, but faster pace and quicker recovery.

We logged less distance, but ran slightly harder.

Quality over quantity.

It was fun to be there as he experienced the concept for the first time.
