1. What's cool about this story? Jumping.
I thought it was enough to stand on one leg for 45 seconds to a minute to help with my balance. But look at this link and see how a trainer talks about jumping to improve balance. I'm not talking about the jumps to the top of a three-foot high box, but more modest jumping.
I mean, you have to get high enough to slide a piece of paper under your feet as you leave the ground. But this article talks about the fans of cross-fit in this one Idaho community.
2. A quick read about a woman swimming and winning with cancer.
If you have cancer don't ever think you are alone. The shared community, especially around cancer, lifts us up with stories like this about a 72-year old woman in Canada. Gold medal. Gold heart. It's worth the two-minute read.
3. Her kids' friends are her friends. Golf and Pickleball at 94.
I'm guessing Jo Anne Nichols' gene pool is pretty shallow. She golfs at 94 four times a week. She plays pickleball the other three days.
This is the story from her local TV station in Arizona. Be sure to check out the tee-shirt her Pickleball partner is wearing. I need to find that guy and send him a properly irreverent poke at older players with a Geezer Jock tee.
