Set sail on your dreams!

Couple shares once-in-a-lifetime island adventure

Tyson Hayward has always dreamt of sailing. Raised in land-locked Calgary, Canada by a father who had competed in the Olympic trials as a Star-Class yacht racer, the call of a watery horizon always beckoned him. So, at his first chance, in his early twenties, he set off for the Virgin Islands. Working as a waiter, he earned his fins as a scuba dive master and spent a year exploring the underwater paradise of the islands.

Run Paso for a Cause

Run Paso is a women’s running group that was founded in 2010. The group of friends began meeting at a different location each Sunday, and the word quickly spread spread. In the past two years, the group has grown and the women in it have started training together for 5k, half, and full marathons.
 
Together, the group trains for and travels to races throughout the state. “It is so fun to have something to train for,” says member Michelle Thacher, “We make a weekend of the races, get hotel rooms, and go out to dinner.”

Seniors strive for fitness

Age is mind over matter...if you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter. – Mark Twain

The famous quote above by Mark Twain truly represents the philosophy of the home owners at Traditions at River Oaks, a community of over-55 active seniors.

Since August 2013, a group of more than 30 seniors have met twice a week to lift weights, work on balance, flexibility and just have a good time while getting stronger and fit in the process.

Their ages range from 55 to the spry 90-year-old Bonnie Meyer.

If you ain’t dead, you ain’t done

The writing has been on the wall for a long time. Movement is life, life is movement. Many biological functions in your body are dependent on movement, especially your brain’s development and continual “tuning”. Your brain began developing in the womb, first, through your mother’s movement, then later, through your own. Movement physically changes your brain and enables it to function better. Why do you think movement, play, and restlessness are so inherent to children?

Sponsored by Michael Gill Cellars - Outstanding Paso Robles Syrah

A group of disc golf players are proposing to build new course on the east side of town on 60-acres of open land between Highway 46 and Kleck Road.
