Mr. Marathon, Clarence DeMar, lived to run! He entered the Boston marathon 34 times, winning 7 and finishing in the top 10-15 the other 27 times.
He ran over 1,000 ling distance races, worked nights as a proofreader, operated a small fan, taught at a reformatory for boys and still found time to keep in top condition for his cross-country races.
He ran his last race when he was 69 and died a year later from cancer however he worked up to 2 weeks before he died.
An autopsy was performed and what was found was amazing! The condition of his coronary arteries were 2-3 times their normal size. Some sedentary individuals not only have small arteries, but they also are clogged with debris reducing the opening even more. - Frederick C. Hatfield, PhD

YOUR health matters

Being healthy does not have to be boring. YOU make it fun because you are allowing yourself to live longer for your spouse, children, grandchildren, parents and siblings. Be creative with your life. Try new things. Experience the world around you. Take in the fresh air by going for a walk, or natural nature by taking a hike. Enjoy life!
