You should glance at these short items from Geezer Jock

 

1. Kids and marshmallows and getting on with exercise.

"I’m reminded of the now well-known Marshmallow Experiment, conducted at Stanford in the late 1960s. Researchers sat young children in front of a marshmallow on a plate, told them if they waited fifteen minutes before eating the marshmallow they would get a second one, and then left them."

What does this have to do with Geezer Jock? It relates to trying to doing things for our future well-being, like mixing in a short run with our walking, or trying those long-avoided pullups. This is a safe link to a cool little story on rewarding your future self.Give it a look.

2. How To Qualify For National Senior Games In 2025

Des Moines, Iowa hasn't looked very inviting the last two weeks with sub-zero temps and snow banks that would challenge pole vaulters.

These are some links you need to lock in on now about rules and qualifying. (Cut and paste.)

3. Cabin Fever with this weather? Here is a remedy.

Huddled around a fireplace in Arkansas years ago, two parents and their children turned to track & field to escape the monotony of indoors. They stayed indoors, but just found a bigger indoor space.

The mom really thrived in the bigger space.

Del Moon of the National Senior Games has this story on Vickie Liddell, 67, and how she was drawn to track & field.
