The Master’s Track & Field National Indoor Championships conclude today at the Reggie Lewis Center, in Boston. About 850 Master’s athletes, aged 30 – 90+ have been running, jumping and throwing their way to better health.

It takes passion, inspiration and motivation to continue to remain active and healthy, well into our midlife and senior years.  How do they do it?

Well, for starters, they’ve got soul:

Maybe your impossible goal is plain and simple. Once you get healthier, stay there for the rest of your life.

Lane 8 At Golds Gym Orlando

Went to Golds Gym yesterday for the second time in ten days. Didn’t really want to. It was cold here in Orlando. Cloudy and gloomy too.  Wasn’t particularly motivated.


So a choice had to be made.  Same choice, day in, day out.

Exactly.  So who cares?  I get it.  Healthy people, especially healthy Baby Boomers rub the rest of the Baby Boomer group (the unhealthy ones) the wrong way.  So what am I supposed to do?  Slow down?

How Big Should Your Goal Be?

If your goal isn’t impossible, you’re not reaching high enough.

Hang in there if you are struggling.  Odds are, you are.

I know I sure am. Ran once last week. Once! How is that possible?

So here we are, another week.  Yesterday, I swore there would be time for a run. After delivering four keynote speeches yesterday, each to a different audience, exhaustion took on a whole new meaning. No run.

Today is another day…. for all of us.  Good luck.  Do not give up!
