If i remember this correctly, we met when i was 10 years old on the Thomasville Elementary School playground in 1969. Apparently i, like every other child on the playground, was too impatient to walk between playground apparatus so we ran.
But it was that one fateful morning when the Physical Education teacher took my class of 5th graders to the parking lot to time each child in the 50-yard dash that something changed.
Unbeknownst to me, i learned that day that out of the 30 other children in class, the teacher said i had the fastest time.
This was the day i learned about attitude.

Dear Boomer friends, we all know the unfair surprising number of health related challenges midlife brings. High cholesterol struck jeff noel 12 years ago, and with a family history of heart disease, noel needed to refocus on excellent diet and exercise habits.
Diet and exercise gurus teach the “how to” diet, “how to” exercise – this is good. But health gurus, for whatever reason, neglect the critical success factor that noel preaches at Lane 8 – getting healthy is one thing, staying there is a lifetime event.
