Back To Mid Life Celebration’s Health & Wellness Story (From Zion National Park)

Not quite 9am, October 3, 2011 (perfect)

As we Baby Boomers struggle to slow down during hectic holiday and economic times, we would be wise to consider the many obvious benefits to sticking to a lifetime of physical activity, adequate rest and moderate eating. Embedded in the list is “getting to do more than if you weren’t relatively healthy”. Amen. Hard work is the short cut.

An Important Part Of Midlife Wellness Is Rest And Rejuvenation

We had an unexpected free day, away from the Senior Games
Huntsman World Senior Games, Utah 2011

Due to the massive volume of athletes (10,000) over 10 days, advanced competition schedules were not available for Track & Field. October 3 became an unexpected free day. Zion National Park was an hour away. It was a no brainer.

When and where was the HS Mile record set?

Alan Webb You Tube video, breaking the USA National High School record for one mile, at Hayward Field at the University of Oregon, May 28, 2001.

Here’s an article with Alan Webb’s story from that day.

By the way, the great Jim Ryan held the previous record for 36 years.   This was a monumental day in High School Track & Field.

The winner of the race was Hicham El Guerrouj, from Morocco, the world record-holder, who ran 3:49.92, the fastest mile ever run in North America.

Amazing things happen all the time.  We often forget that they can also happen to us, and do happen to us, but we don’t recognize them because they are not record-breaking feats.

It occurs the same time as a previously scheduled commitment.  Most likely, I’ll be absent.  

If you could only pick one, the National Championships or the World Championships, which would you pick?

The National Championships are less expensive in money and time.  Plus, the odds of a higher finishing place our much greater.

The World Championships are way more expensive in time and money.  And, the odds of a high finish are dramatically reduced.

Seriously, which is the obvious choice?

The correct answer is completely subjective, so there is no wrong or right.    Carpe diem, jeff  🙂
