Healthy aging mind. Keep learning and changing. It’s the best way to live life to the full. Question the obvious!
Healthy aging body. Safe exercise, good nutrition, sound ethics, intellectual pursuits, kindness to humans and animals. And a general state of balance.
Healthy aging physical balance that derives from the study of body awareness. Another of my passions – it’s the only way to keep this old body of mine injury-free, and out on the Ironman course.
Healthy aging for the older athlete. Well, that’s me in my 70s. I’m inspired every time I meet other people in my age group at races.
Healthy aging heroes. They keep me going when the going gets tough. Like Kurt and Elizabeth. Ironman keeps us out of assisted living.
Healthy aging aortic heroes. Helped so much in my case. If you have a health challenge, find people like Pauline. They will get you through the tough times. Pauline found me several years ago, via this blog. Pauline and her husband, another runner, Bob, came all the way to Cleveland, Ohio, to support me, before my second aortic surgery.
Healthy aging kindness. As we age, we develop more empathy for others, I think. Due to life’s experiences. This has been an increased empathy for animals. See my new web site, You Can Save The Animals. I first went vegetarian, and then vegan. I never looked back, and I’m loving all the food variety.
Healthy aging products. Designed under the FitOldDog brand, to save the animals. To raise awareness of the plight of animals on factory farms. I really love this work.

My nutrition journey:
Healthy aging training. Still doing the Ironman – next one is the 2016 Louisville race. I just love the sport, especially the vitality that it adds to my life. Yep!
Healthy aging fitness at work. I think it saved my life at the 2010 Lake Placid Ironman.
This ‘healthy aging blog’ has evolved since it was initiated in response to my abdominal aortic aneurysm, in August 2010.
The discovery of my aneurysm, and the consequent abdominal aortic aneurysm stent graft placement, scared me to death. At that time, I was focused on reaching out for someone to talk to about my situation. Those days are now, fortunately, behind me. I have overcome fear of stent failure and I’m getting on with my life.
One objective of this blog is to provide motivation, inspiration, and an information resource for anyone interested in developing their own program of safe exercise for better health. Emphasis is placed on endurance sports with special reference to health challenges that might cause people to give up the dream of being an athlete. It is never too late to get in shape. We can all be athletes, in our own way. Just for the joy of it. The trick is to develop a balanced life philosophy.
Living with aortic disease can be an interesting challenge. Undertaking exercise with an aneurysm, whether repaired or with a stent graft, or not, has to be done with care, taking into account all of the key variable – see my blog post on Benefit/Risk Assessment For Regaining Your Sport.
I am supporting these efforts by marketing a number of downloadable e-books or white papers, which provide a synthesis of subjects that interest me. Two such products include guides to aortic surgery recovery and fixing plantar fasciitis.
Healthy aging benefit/risk analysis. Take care, as you recover from life’s challenges. I highly recommend a careful benefit/risk analysis. Considering all of the important variables. As you get back on with your life.
Healthy aging fun. Finally! My mantra is, “Everything in moderation, including moderation.” You have to party sometimes. But earn it first. I climbed 6,000 feet on my bike, after a 50-mile ride, to earn this beer. At a triathlon training camp, in Arizona, in my late 60s. A mere youngster!
Happy training, my friends. Whatever you do, don’t become a prisoner of your particular health challenge.
Wishing you happy trails.
