Dr. Michael Roizen, Chief Wellness Officer at the Cleveland Clinic, is one of the developers of the Real Age test on the Internet. You know your chronological age, but go to www.realage.com and take the test to find out what your “real age” is. The test tells you how well you are taking care of yourself. Your lifestyle – what you eat, how much you exercise and so on – can make you more vulnerable to degenerative diseases of age such as heart disease, diabetes, stroke or dementia. Or it can make you much less vulnerable.
On August 7, I completed my first ever Olympic-length triathlon. I came in #1 in my age/gender group. By finishing first in my age/gender group, I qualified on my first try for the National Triathlon competition later this month. What a surprise!
