It’s been 25 years since…

Summer is at full force and I hope all of you are outside enjoying the incredible summer we are having.  Soon it will be fall and then winter so cherish the sunlight and get out and get your body moving.

One of the best things you can do for your brain is to get out and get some exercise.  The brain needs oxygen for fuel and there is nothing better than ramping the heart rate up a bit and getting oxygen to the brain.  You will  feelso much better.  Remember exercise is the best anti-depressant.

This past weekend I went up to Washburn Wi. to visit my old friends Dave Wilcox and his son Cam.  We did the firehouse 50 bike race which I haven’t done for 25 years.  It’s been 20 years since I’ve done a bike race so I wasn’t sure how it might go.

I started out way in the back in the 3rd wave and eased in to the race.  The main pack was already a 1/2 mile ahead of me after a couple miles.  Going up the great divide was really challenging.  I have only ridden 150 miles this summer and was wondering how my legs would hold up.

As I got over the great divide which seemed like a 3 mile hill climb I relaxed and was able to catch a group of racers which helps a ton.  I caught my buddy Willie at the 20 mile mark and was able to ride with him through the Chemomequon forest which was incredibly beautiful with rolling hills.  As we got to Drummond Wi. we had 8 miles to go.  I was really feeling it but made it to the finish line with just a little cramping.  My butt sure was sore and still is.

It was fun to do something different.  I can’t beleive I haven’t biked much over the last 20 years.  It sure is less pounding on the legs and is great for the heart when you start pushing the hills.  I probably won’t race much because you need to train for it and skiing is enough for me.  But to get outside and enjoy a nice ride with friends sure is fun.

Ok, here is what we are up to.  I’m holding a thyroid recovery workshop next Monday night the 10th at 6:30 at my offfice.  It’s an hour long, no charge.  If you suffer with a thyroid problem then this is a must attend class.

Football and fall sports are here.  The Chieftains should be really good this year.  I look forward to helping these athletes stay healthy and being able to compete at the optimal potential.

Keep up eating a great diet, moving your body, and being grateful for all the greatness that each of you have.

    That's exactly how I felt after I played in this years 23rd annual Turkey Bowl. We had 18 players fight off 5 degree temps and minus 10 windchill.  It wasn't so bad once you got moving.  I played on the winning Red team and we were against the wind the first half and trailed the whole first hal
