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?

The perseverance of a 67-year-old marathon runner

Running a marathon is hard for any human being. Novice or elite athlete. It requires months of training and a willingness to push through 26.6 miles of pain and exhaustion with the reward of having someone put a medal around your neck. It’s an endeavor that most people have zero desire to undertake. However the process and experience is a commonality that all marathoners share regardless of their age or skill level.

Hiker’s high

Pinnacles National Park offers breathtaking glance of nature at its best

Lying on my back, on a sun-warmed rock, at the top of High Peaks, in the heart of Pinnacles National Park (elevation 1,540), I strive not to move a muscle. My breath is imperceptible, my eyes unblinking. 

I’m trying to feel the earth move.

The View from Heaven

Find adventure at Skydive Pismo Beach

In 21st century America, planes are a fairly normal aspect of the daily grind. Most adults would say they’ve flown, but Chris Lee, general manager of Skydive Pismo Beach, would disagree. To him, that would be like saying you went for a swim without ever leaving the boat. In order to fly, you’ve got to jump.

Four Atascadero cyclists ride across America for wounded veterans

A retired Marine will attempt a remarkable event this summer, biking 3,700 miles across the U.S. to raise funds for wounded Marines and sailors.

John Foldberg, at age 57, will be accompanied by Daniel and Nathan Macfarlane and Evan Gillham, three young men who had heard about Foldberg’s endeavor and asked to come along. The four Atascadero residents have formed a group named “CCC4Vets” or “Cross-Country Cyclists for Veterans.” They will leave Anacortes, Washington on August 1, 2013 and bike 60 miles a day until they arrive at Virginia Beach, Virginia mid-October.

Where to swim on the Central Coast

Swimming provides a fantastic, full-body workout that’s actually fun. There’s something inherently playful about the water, even when adults use it for serious exercise. Unfortunately, swimming season only lasts so long. As soon as summer ends, the demand for refreshing swims in the hot sun comes to an end, and a plethora of pools close down for the fall, winter, and even spring. But what can you do if you want a low impact workout in the water in the off months? Here’s the skinny on where you can dip during the rest of the year:
