Palmetto Delight 1200k

Palmetto Delight 1200k

I finally got around to designing a route in South Carolina. I thought it would be harder to do than it ended up being. I began by doodling a 400k route out of Columbia, SC. The route starts and finishes in the parking lot of my college dorm during my freshman and sophomore years. This should be an excellent route to tackle in early Spring or late Fall.

The length of the Day Two Leg is a little longer than I had hoped it would be – 20 miles or so. But the ride is flat. So the extra few miles should not be a big deal.

CLICK HERE to see the map below of the route in more detail at RWGPS.

5 Top Health Tips of All Time

5 Top Health Tips of All Time

  • Once a car wears out it will never run well again unless it is rebuilt. But if you have the car rebuilt, then it can run well again. Once a person loses fitness (and their health) and becomes overweight and probably pre-diabetic (or diabetic), then they cannot become fit again without FIRST restoring (rebuilding) their health. Being overweight is a symptom of poor health; it is NOT poor health in and of itself. Good health exists when a person’s bodily functions and systems work the way they should – the way they did when the person was young (assuming no birth defects).
  • Eat the wrong foods in excessive quantities and you will break your bodily functions and systems, thus destroying your health. Weight gain will be inevitable. Plaque in the arteries will be inevitable. And eventually fatty liver, diabetes, heart attack, and/or stroke. Avoid the WRONG foods, and practice intermittent fasting, and you just might be able to restore or rebuild your health. Then losing weight will be pretty simple.
