To all my friends and brothers here.

I will not be moderating here for approximately 10-12 months. I am retiring on December 30,2005 and I have chosen my career afterwards. I am studying for ACE Certification as a personal trainer. How about that for a 64 year old.

I have been working out at my club for some 2 /13 years now and I can honestly say that I have grown in body and spirit during this time. I have an appreciation for myself that has been greatly enhanced by working out.

I will visiting once in a while. You cannot get rid of me.

I can honestly say that walking with all of you here has been the greatest experience of my life. All of you have been an inspiration to me and I love each and every one of you as a brother.

Stay on the journey and know that while I will be away for a while I will be walking with you.

I owe you so much, my friend. The fact you'll be around still makes it easier. I KNOW you're going to do it and you'll be a huge asset to your clients.

Peace and Much love, my friend.

Thanks for all your help Mike. Good luck with the ACE cert. I got certified in my 40's by ISSA as a personal trainer, just for myself not a career. The gym helped keep me together for a long time. Now I find that I can no longer lift heavy due to soem heart problems. My doc suggested running. RUNNING! I HATE running!

Keep in touch!
