Weekly Briefing: 90s hurdler. Fasting? Terrific Podcasts.

February 25, 2023

Some other stories to read this weekend.

 

1. Clearing hurdles at 90

It is one thing to run down a track at 90, but jump over hurdles for 80 meters?

Here is the story of one Canadian who won't quit.

2. Is Fasting Ok for Geezer Jocks?

In January, Geezer Jock featured Jerry Applegate, 61, a late-to-the-game 400 meter guy. He's pretty good. 

Jerry once weighed 230 pounds. He's around 160 now. Jerry told Geezer Jock about his regimen of intermittent fasting, which can last 16 hours.

I am cautious about writing about health ideas here, but when a medical outfit like Johns Hopkins gets behind it, I thought readers might like to learn more. Maybe you all have a good idea of the benefits, to begin with.

Here is the link to the Hopkins item.

 

3. Fountain of Youth Podcasts

Here is a link to a terrific set of podcasts by Growing Bolder founder Marc Middleton. Fasting, pickleball, "creating a positive, meaningful life". It's all here.
