Effort drives success more than talent. That’s how i represented, at age 50, the USA in the 2009 Masters Track and Field World Championships in Finland. It’s how i published a book in 2013.

Feel frustrated at how easily i gain weight
Secretly wish i didn’t have to work so hard just to maintain my weight
You had no idea right?
