Mark and I are back online writing for Aging Youthful! I guess we haven’t really been off-line, Mark and I just set our writing aside for a while we were super busy working and training. In December I added teaching three more fitness classes to my schedule and Mark was trying to be busy training for a Strongman competition the end of January. However, the crud circulating around the world, knocked him down for most of December so we decided to take a little time off to get through the holidays, get him healthy and me get a little rest.
Not Writing But Not Resting
Despite his sickness, he had a great competition at The Frozen Northside Competition the end of January and proud to report he won his division once again! While he still didn’t feel 100% at the competition, as usual he gave it his all, set a couple of personal records (including the deadlift photo below from Teresa Sadler!) and qualified for US Strongman Nationals in June in Detroit! We have hired local strength and conditioning coach, Matthew Sadler to train him for the event, so we are hoping he gets over his most recent setback soon!
And Some More Sickness
On Saturday, Mark got violently sick and I ended up taking him to the emergency room. We are still waiting for the official results of the testing, but it is believed to be bad gut bacteria gone wild after a round of antibiotics for walking pneumonia at the end of the year. We are hoping for a speedy recovery so he can get back to training ASAP!
We’d love to hear from you to learn what you’d like to hear about. We are lining up a few awesome interviews of people who are living the Aging Youthful lifestyle by not letting their age define them and are doing some amazing things DESPITE their ages. Stay tuned as we come back online once a week with fun, engaging, entertaining, informative and inspiring stories!
