Is it Better to Be Safe or Dead?

As many of you know, I am here in Breckenridge, Colorado for a month – skiing, writing and doing work. Oh yeah, and I try to get a little relaxation in whenever possible. You know that my blog is about how you can live your best possible life. Even though I generally focus on eating […]

The Final Blog (of the year)!

You’re going to love it because I have some really great special health tips coming up for you from Colorado just after the new year! That’s right, each winter I leave my beautiful place in Reisterstown, Maryland on the east coast, head west and spend about four weeks in Breckenridge, Colorado to ski, write, and […]

Last Minute Holiday Pep Talk!

Welcome to the Christmas weekend. Are you going to be good? I certainly hope so. Please remember that whatever you do, there will be repercussions! So please think before doing! If you drink too much alcohol, you risk getting sick or even worse, getting into an auto accident. And yes, alcohol will add pounds to […]

Do you know what the easiest way to actually appear more vibrant as well as look at least 5-10 years younger? The answer is to just lose some weight. Those of us that are carrying around a few extra pounds… oh my God, what the weight does to our body, our skeleton, our heart, joints, […]

Change is Good

I’m looking at the calendar and I cannot believe that it’s November already. Ski season is just around the corner. And those of you that have been following me for a while know what that means to me. Every January I head out to Breckenridge, Colorado and spend about a month there working and skiing. […]

The Salty Truth – Runners Take Notice!

So I went out and ran ten miles yesterday. Was my first double digit run since The Chicago Marathon (10/10/10). If you read my previous article, you probably remember the problems that I had during the marathon which necessitated my dropping out at mile 21. Well yesterday, even though it is still October here, it […]

Why Watching Football is NEVER on my List!

Friends, it’s Saturday and it is always good to be back home after a long travel week. It really is true, “There’s no place like home.” I’ll spend the day getting settled back in and tomorrow will be a good exercise day. The weather here in Baltimore County should be in the 70’s and I […]

No Excuses!

I am getting ready to go on the road for the rest of the week. I will be traveling through Houston, St. Louis and Nashville before I return home on Friday evening. Now it’s easy when traveling not to do the normal routine, but remember, it is a lifestyle. So I am taking my running […]

Dave Meets *M*A*S*H at Chicago Marathon!

OK, it’s tough, but I will say it. I had to drop out of the Chicago Marathon after 21 miles due to severe cramping. I tried everything I could to keep moving, but in the end I felt that covering the last five miles in the 80 plus degree weather could have been very dangerous […]

Four Days Until 10/10/10 – Chicago!

Yes, according to my calendar and watch I have about four days and ten hours before the starting gun sounds at the beginning of the Chicago Marathon. Am I ready? Yes, I am ready to finish! To complete the marathon, one needs a combination of physical and mental readiness. I think my body is ready […]

The Rewards of the Marathon

I have just completed ironing words on the shirt I will be wearing in the Chicago Marathon this Sunday. The front simply says “DAVE.” That’s so as I run, every spectator on the 26.2 mile course will see my name and yell “GO DAVE!” This will hopefully give me the energy I will need to […]
