77_year_oldU.S. life expectancy has hit another all-time high — 77.6 years — and deaths from heart disease, cancer and stroke continue to drop, the government reported today. In fact, life expectancy in the U.S. has been rising almost without interruption since 1900

Want to know what 77. 6 looks like?  Ted Newland (see picture) is 77 and believes there is no excuse not to work out everyday.  Gotta love it!

For me, the news that I have a little longer to live than I thought brings to mind the most important question of my life:  What are you going to trade your life for? (I know the grammar isn’t the best, but i find the question very compelling).  Since this question first hit me in college I have believed that everyone of us is going to be a martyr and will trade our lives for something.  We will all die for something – all at once OR one day at a time over a lifetime.  So, what are you going to trade your life for?  This may be the most important question we can ask ourselves.
