Let me introduce myself. My name is Mark Sisson. I’m 63 years young. I live and work in Malibu, California. In a past life I was a professional marathoner and triathlete. Now my life goal is to help 100 million people get healthy. I started this blog in 2006 to empower people to take full responsibility for their own health and enjoyment of life by investigating, discussing, and critically rethinking everything we’ve assumed to be true about health and wellness...Tell Me More

“Mark you always seems to have a quote or two that makes me deeply appreciate your perspective. This time it was this, “My days are full and rich. I don’t really think or worry about it because I know I’m doing all I can to make the most of it.” It struck a chord with me as I have been reflecting on the fact that we all have a choice whether we want to be happy or choose to worry/live in the past or future/you name it. I suppose no matter how one chooses to live their life we will always have regrets and wish we could have done more with the time we had. Makes me realize more and more how important it is to choose wisely with each passing moment. ?”
