Reference to help get you started!

I am often asked about the books I read and the sources of my information.  Here is an overview of the resources that have helped me in my journey to Health and Fitness.  I will admit that some of the sources have conflicting information, but the overall guidelines support each other.  It also helps to read several viewpoints so that you can make your own decision about what is best for you.  Whether you are vegan, paleo, vegetarian or Atkins - many of the same principles apply.

As a runner, I also like to follow athletes who have overcome challenges in their life to achieve great success.  I have included those as well.  Enjoy!
