The glory of new life is, you can wait, there'll be another day. Approach things calmly and savor them, yeah, that's the stuff. In the meantime, I could honor my presence on Planet Here with sleep. After all, the dead don't sleep, they rest. It's different.

Who's ready for summer!? With Memorial Day and warm weather just around the corner, it is time to whip out the bathing suits and put the chunky sweaters back in the closet. Here are my top tips for getting your body healthy and prepared for the warm summer days ahead.
I embarked on a little project in 2010, though I didn't know it yet. When I climbed into an open air boxing ring in sultry Bangkok to take a Muay Thai lesson (battering, more like), so began a series of adventures I'm retroactively dubbing Around the World in 80 Sports.
It's starting to warm up outside and the gym is getting packed. Instead of skipping out on your workout because all the machines seem to be taken, try this fun outdoor workout! All you need to do is find a playground.
While I understand the low-impact benefits and surely appreciated the beautiful facility, I'd rather swim or spin -- separately. But there is a first time for everything!
Carried along by the upbeat music, concentrating on following our energetic, ab-tight instructor, I feel, not my age, but my 'self.' The same 'me' who has danced, and exercised in various ways, throughout my life.

I wish that I could say that becoming an ultrarunner came with some poetic philosophical realization, and I'm sure there's a lesson to be found somewhere. But, I'm not going to dig for it. I'm just going to take a deep breath, and keep on putting one foot in front of the other.
