The Importance of DOING, no matter what your Age.

Posted by N Gil on

I don't think that the benefits of Exercise can be overstated, no matter what your age. Whether you are 5 years old, 35 years old or 85 years old. You must get up and do something.  My 5 year old watches her 9 year brother on the golf course and says she wants to do what he is doing. So we bought her a little bag and  gave her a few clubs. She is loving it.   I was talking to my very good friend Randy at the Golf Course today and he mentioned to me that he started playing...
