  1. HI, Sunny! Very nice to meet you. I admire much about you and your site already. It’s great to be so focused on such a fine goal so early in your life. I didn’t find this whole world of health until after I retired. So, you are on the right track. Great observation that health and fitness can be fun. So often they are considered anything but ….
    Keep up the good work!

    p.s. Go, Cats! I taught at Northwestern in Medill for a few years.
