Old fit guy trying to get fitter. As an outdoor enthusiast, being in shape is imperative to having fun outdoors. There is nothing fun about backpacking up steep slopes while sucking wind and wishing you were home in bed. You can't ski when your legs are burning so much you can't flex your knees. And it's no fun if you can't point them down the fall line.

I write about health, fitness, longevity, nutrition, anti aging, weight loss and diabetes. All things any self proclaimed old guy wanting to stay young would care about. If you are old and fit and want to talk about strategy and success, please connect on my blog. If you're old and fat and want to regain the vitality of your youth, I can help you find the way. If you want to lose weight and/or reverse the effects of diabetes, let's talk about what you are eating. Don't accept anything less than a great life everyday.

If you are young and fit, you probably don't need me but connect if you like. I can learn from you.
