A DREAM
It’s always been my dream to run the NYC marathon at a ripe age  of 100. I ran this stretch four times when I was a little younger. Maybe such a feat could help illustrate to others some of the healing ideas I claim to know. The fact is that my wild theories do work to both suppress normal aging and reverse illnesses. While I personally would like to inspire others, it looks like I won’t be the first to do so by the year 2050. Let me vicariously experience it.

GO FAUJA! I am rooting for you.
