"Health Goals Maximized"

A lady friend and fellow distance runner in Oregon, Peggy Goodman, shared with me a magazine article about a nonagenarian, who at age 94 still makes waves in the world of sports. Huge waves.

Olga Kotelko, a retired school teacher from West Vancouver, Canada, achieved about 20 world records in track and field at age 85 – all in one year.

She's still competitively long-jumping and high-jumping today. And she feels as if she were in her fifties…

Why am I writing about this incredible lady?

What intrigued me with her is the fact that she only entered in masters track and field competition at the age of 77!

My often repeated remark - call it a plea - on the pages of is "It's never too late. Now is the time."

And looking at what Ms. Kotelko has achieved, I'm tempted to say: See?!

The article goes on to mention that probably not all of us can be world record holders, but that all of us can be MORE LIKE Olga.


Olga doesn't do anything spectacular or secret to be in this kind of extraordinary shape.

Yes, she has a personal coach who helps with her training.

But she eats "real food", follows healthy habits and routines, and maintains a positive attitude.

I offer to assist you with all of these health goals.

You and I, we can all disregard the naysayers and pessimists. We're not too old to change our diet and exercise lifestyle.

I have done it. Join me, please. The benefits are too numerous to list them here in this newsletter. Extended longevity is but one of them.

As you already know, I would very much love to be your guide, supporter and cheerleader.

I firmly believe that it is vital to continuously have something to look forward to. Make time for living! Make time for challenges!

One of the goals of is to show you how to live a longer and healthier life by learning from many different older adults, including centenarians.

You can look forward to lots of encouraging information in future editions of this newsletter.

Yours in good senior health,
