Life is an adventure.

Bill Gronau believes that, and he lives his belief. Climbing, geocaching, archery — he’s tried them all, and much more.

Christopher Beamish loves the challenge of puzzling together the pieces of clocks and watches, making them tick again.

In this edition of Vitality, we tell you their stories. Life shouldn’t slow down after you hit 50. And these stories show you that it can just be the start of a well-lived life. We also tell you about college classes aimed at older adults. We even have a story about how to make sure you’re getting the best nutrition as you age.

Read on. And then get out there and keep learning and growing.
