Run Heartily and Prosper!

Are you hardly running or heartily running? This is the question I asked today of my friendly viewers and listeners on Periscope, Snapchat, and on anchor. There is a difference and how we answer that question makes a huge difference in how healthy we are (the quality of our life) and how long we live […]

Bronzed Middle Ages

Racing through the Middle Ages…I mean my middle ages… First of all, I hope you are not upset at me blending the Bronze and Middle Ages together. I’m not trying to be historically confusing.
