Moran's memo: Defeating Alzheimer's Disease

Every 68 seconds someone in America develops Alzheimer's disease – a devastating and irreversible brain disease that slowly destroys an individual's cognitive functioning, including memory and thought.

As the population ages, the number of people diagnosed with Alzheimer's after age 65 will double every five years, while the number of individuals 85 years and older with this disease will triple by 2050.

Slipping into a new habit this year

I began my year of walking more right after Thanksgiving. I live in a very walkable neighborhood in Great Bend. My house is just blocks from most of the things I need, as well as my job. There are restaurants, coffee shops, entertainment of all sorts, clothing stores, gift stores, grocery stores, banks, doctors and dentists offices, schools, convenience stores--you name it, it's probably within walking distance of where I live. And for me, walking distance is about a half-mile. That's six blocks, for simplicity's sake. Not even enough to work up a sweat.

Need a way to help the miles pass by? Here's some podcasts to listen to while running

Warmer weather means more running for me, and while I love a good solo run, my thoughts quickly become boring and obnoxious, even to myself. A better option? Podcasts. A great podcast keeps the mind engaged and distracted while the feet are busy and the legs are burning. It’s like having a conversation without having to do any work. Here are a few of my current favorites. Notice: Only a couple are running related.
