I am 66 years old. According to my birth certificate. But every test I've taken to supposedly determine my biological or fitness or whatever age says that I am like a much younger person. The fact that I regularly finish in the top 15-20% overall when I run races supports this. But I'm claiming the 66 so that they don't stop my Social Security retirement checks. ;-)

I am working 1 or 2 days a week and should have a lot of free time but I am somehow always busy. I read but have not been writing much. For a while, I was doing 2 hours of exercise a day but have reduced this amount to do more writing. I have started Yoga. I now stretch a bit. And I travel a lot.

I love this quote: "There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as if everything is." - Albert Einstein.

Bout running: "Some people create with words or with music or with a brush and paints. I like to make something beautiful when I run. I like to make people stop and say, 'I've never seen anyone run like that before.' It's more than just a race, it's a style. It's doing something better than anyone else. It's being creative."- Steve Prefontaine
