Inspiration for this website

We all want to feel our best.   This site is designed to help you achieve better health without spending too much time or money.

My name is Ray Christensen (aka 'Marathon Man'). In 2002, I turned 40 and took up running. Through a proper diet, plenty of training and an increased focus on nutrition, I've been feeling younger ever since. In that time, I've run 10 marathons (26.2 miles). But you don't have to be a marathoner to feel the benefits of being fit.

Each of us can take steps to improve our strength, stamina, and self-confidence. Work on one aspect of your health at a time (such as diet, or physical endurance) or combine everything into your personal fitness program for the greatest rewards!
