No time to slow down

Lloyd Miller keeps active and fit well into his 80s

Getting older is all about taking it easy, relaxing and slowing down – right? For some, this may be true, but not for Lloyd Miller – an active 87-year-old whose regular exercise routine keeps him fit, active, healthy and happy.

Running across the Grand Canyon -- and Back

Diaries of an Ex-Couch Potato: Samantha Pruitt
 
When my Ultra Running mentor, Bob Keefe, invited me to run 50 miles Rim2Rim2Rim across the Grand Canyon and back, I said, “HELL NO!” Good thing for me Ultra Bob didn’t take no for an answer.

Living and thriving with the big “C”

I grew up in San Luis Obispo. It was an idyllic and active childhood thanks to my amazing parents. I was one of those kids whose parents would literally tell me go outside and play until dinner. This resulted in frequent tromps all around Bishop Peak where I invariably got muddy at the pond. It also included daily trips to the SLO Swim Center for swim practice. The smell of chlorine wafting over the pool on a summer morning makes me want to dive in and crank out a few 1000 meters (time has allowed me to romanticize those killer workouts).

Coworkers team up for fun & fitness

“If you run, you are a runner. It doesn’t matter how fast or how far. It doesn’t matter if today is your first day or if you’ve been running for 20 years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run.” – John Bingham

Sleeping in Neutral

Proper sleep positions promote better posture

A young man walks in the room, his shoulders are hunched and his head is so far forward that it looks painful. Others notice his posture and wonder what caused it – injury, genetics? Possibly, but later, when an old man walks in with the same posture, others think it’s because of his age.

Paddling the Ocean Blue: Sea Kayaking on the Central Coast

We floated through the ocean swell dipping our paddles gracefully as we glided by the coastline of Santa Barbara County. Our destination on our sea kayaking tour was El Capitan Beach where we would disembark, take our camping gear out of the kayak’s cargo hold, and spend the night at the campground. So far we had covered about six miles and the paddling was easy and uneventful. Suddenly something broke through the surface of the water on either side of our little band of kayakers. “Dolphins,” somebody cried. Sure enough a pod of Pacific dolphins were joining us on our journey.
