At SGSC we don't see life in black and white,

It's never too late to start

 

A study published in British Journal of Sports Medicine has shown that exercise produces health benefits even for those who take up at a later age. Other studies have shown the benefits of exercise in age when taken up earlier in life. This study shows that these benefits - the slower pace of mental and physical decline - also apply to those who start at a more advanced age.

Oldest Snowboarder?

Think Positive to Keep Fit.

 

It has long been known that there is a relationship between mind and body. The Romans had a saying Mens Sana in Corpore Sano, which is generally translated as A Sound Mind in A Healthy Body.

Fauja Singh - Marathon Centurion

 

Thanks to SGSC member Syd Clarke for pointing out this story.

Fauja Singh is a (currently) 101-year-old runner, born in the Punjab in India at a time when it was still a British Territory, and who has only recently retired from marathon running. But not from all running, apparently, as he will continue running 5 and 10 km distances, through which he will continue his charity fund-raising.

We are not alone - but it's not all sport

 

A French book has come into our possession called Aged 50 and Beyond (50 Ans et Après). It concerns the current attitude towards the word "Old"

On the Trail of ...Paul Dubrule

15,250 Km … on a bike … at the age of 67! True or not true? True!

Don't have regrets, never give up

Many thanks to Chris Souillac - ski guide at Alpine Experience in Val d'Isère - and Suzanne Souillac for sending this interesting link about a skier friend of theirs.
