Jack Lalanne, Rest in Peace

I am sure by now you heard the news of the passing of Jack LaLanne.

You can read all about him at the link above, and you almost certain know plenty about him already.

What always sticks in my mind about him was that he was so direct and positive. I can do this, so you can do it, too. He never let age be an obstacle. At ages where most athletes are retired, he was just getting started. He never stopped, he just kept eating healthy foods ("If man made it, don't eat it") and swimming and weight training. He lived to a ripe old age, too - born 1914, died 2011. We should all live that long, and that vigorously.

I'll miss you, Mr. LaLanne.
