In his book, The Noticer, Andy Andrews tells a story about an elderly man known as just Jones, meeting an older woman who was giving up on life. Being seventy years old myself I read this story several times and reading that story with the fact in mind that I had gone through a painful divorce, I decided I had to do something differently. So, I opened the Bowen Farm Bed and Breakfast in my home that I had built with the help of my former wife. A year later, I started The Rugged Red Trail Half Marathon in the Red River Gorge of Kentucky. Both of these events made a huge change in my life for the better.
