Q: Hi Pat! I was just invited to join the local softball rec league with a bunch of my friends. I played hockey and baseball throughout high school, and club hockey and rec soccer in college. Since then, I’ve kept gym-fit, lifting, running, and stretching at least 3X/ week.
Q: About that health-span idea …. My take is that death is part of life. When my number is up, it’s up. I cannot buy into the unrelenting message of manic self-care in the pursuit of health, guaranteed safety [no such thing], and a 100-year lifespan as my sole purpose in life.
Q: Is it true that you cannot out-train a bad diet? Or a BIG healthy diet? I have an active job, and train 3X/ week pretty hard, but can’t seem to move my belt notch. I am stronger and suck less wind, but still carry an extra 30 pounds. Any practical tips? Joe, 45
