On November 11 Mike Fremont set a new American age record at the Marshall University marathon in Huntington, West Virginia. Despite the temperature rising into the mid-70s, Mike broke the former record by over ten minutes in posting a 6:35:47. This will be verified by USATF. The course is a certified Boston qualifier. A blog about Mike’s record-setting marathon effort (with photos of Mike) has been posted: http://www.lifenuts.org/blog1.html
Mike’s lifestyle has inspired a new community-based vitality program called LifeNuts, which made its debut at the marathon expo. Over 120 runners attended an hour-long presentation about the program given by Mike and Dr. Bob Kroeger and many expressed interest in taking LifeNuts back to their hometowns in appreciation for the gift of running marathons. Bob will continue to give presentations at marathon expos, hoping to motivate runners to start this program which is designed to save city budget dollars and reverse childhood obesity.

Please consider bringing the LifeNuts program to your community. It’s free and it complements the ChiLiving and ChiRunning philosophy. All you need is a few inspired volunteers to run it.
