    What a good read. Reading about the experiences of Frank and the other athletes made me want to get up off the couch and get out there and start participating. Don't let the name of the book fool you this book is for everyone young and old.

    IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH AGE: WHAT's AGE GOT TO DO WITH IT?

    Age is just a number and I have not picked the one I am as yet. I realize something very early on after I decided to turn thirty. Never tell anyone your real age and never allow anyone to make you feel old. You can do anything at any age and I know that and never ever allow myself to feel that I can't do what younger people can. I won't admit how old I am but I will say that I am much smarter than I was ten years ago and I have learned some valuable lessons along the way. One is keeping fit and having a healthy weight and eating a healthy diet. So, when I received this book to review I was really excited that I might learn some more ways to stay ahead of the aging game, learn about the author, read his stories and that of others over 65 years young and still kicking.

    Set your pace at moving ahead, keep those racing shoes close by, pump yourself up for an energetic day and don't' let your age slow you down. Imagine competing in the Tevis Cup at age 60. Then how about a 100-mile endurance horse event over the Sierra Nevada Mountains and added to that at age 62 becoming a division winner in the 100 miles Western States Endurance run. Think you have what it takes? Frank Li9eberman is a one-man inspiration that is setting the pace for everyone 65 and over. Keeping it moving, not slowing down and remembering one important point: 70 percent of how you age: YOU CONTROL! So, let's go to the starting line-get ready-set and here we go. See if you can keep as Frank and this reviewer take you on real life journey to improving the quality of your life and proving once and for all: IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH AGE!

    Riding horse trails was Frank's first start coming off at the starting gate joined by his wife, trainers and two Border Collies. He even learned while living on a ranch how to roundup cows that required branding and vaccinations. A real cowboy: Not so easy one might think! Finally, purchasing his own horses, learning how to ride and caring for them on his own. But, hard lessons were about to be learned even one that would haunt anyone for life. When an animal has to be euthanized that would be traumatic. Keep moving: The pace is about to pick up.

    Describing his own experiences and some about those he met on he way his first entry is the Ride and Tie. Explaining the history behind the race, the excitement to prepare for it, his apprehension, fears and hopes really allow the reader to become part of the experience along with Frank as he relives each moment from the past. Life does not always run on an uphill path or trail, so when thing became out of whack or difficult it was his horses, his racing and his drive that kept him moving towards those finish lines.

    Next we meet Russ Keirnan who won the Dipsea Race. Meeting Jack Kirk would help Russ, as he became his mentor and trainer. Using Jack's techniques even after he passes away does much to help him when he competes in a Ride and Tie and 28 more competitions. Can you feel the energy? Next the author tells the reader about his 2nd Ride and Tie: THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP in 1998. What he does and the pain he endured just to enter was totally remarkable. In 1999 he and Steve Anderson his Ride and Tie partner entered together and ran a trail. Learning about the 3rd Annual Marathon was next. Never stopping and always looking for the next race and competition to enter. The history of the Tevis was really interesting first awarded in 1959.

    His friend Jim Steere's story was quite comp
