Whoops, She Did It Again
August 25, 2022
Yes, whoops they did it again.
The Bemer team in the eight-cyclist Race Across America, previous recordholders, set yet another record this past June in the world’s most difficult bike race.
The historic race, run annually every June since 1982, in recent years coursing 3,038 miles from Oceanside CA to Annapolis MD, witnessed the Bemer team burning their way 24/7 to the finish line in five days, three hours, and 43 minutes, two minutes off the previous record.
And get this, they did it with an average cyclist age of 46.
But gotta fess up. They cheated. When not the lead rider, the riders in waiting had Bemer microcirculation sessions in the trailing vans.

Too Hot to Think Straight?
If you’ve been struggling to focus this summer, there’s a reason. Heat waves can be mentally arduous. “During a heatwave, it’s difficult to focus for a variety of physical and psychological reasons,” Dr. Manly explains.
Combating extreme heat often triggers the body’s stress response; this causes a spike in stress hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline,” she explains. When our fight or flight response is activated for a long period of time (say during a heat wave), concentration is likely to dip.
Outrun a poor diet?
This fallacy, that you can out-exercise a poor diet, continues to permeate our thinking. A new research study debunks this thinking. The study found that high levels of physical activity do not counteract the detrimental effects of a poor diet on mortality risk.
“Some people may think they could offset the impacts of a poor diet with high levels of exercise or offset the impacts of low physical activity with a high-quality diet, but the data shows that unfortunately, this is not the case.
This Investment is booming
“The best investment you will ever make is on your own health“. Quote from every Grandma in the world!
As history shows, Americans turn to gardening in times of uncertainty. During World War I, a severe food crisis in Europe motivated the United States to form the National War Garden Commission, encouraging Americans to plant, harvest, and store their own fruits and vegetables. This allowed the export of more food to those in Europe as a way to support the war effort.
