To Your Health

First there was news that older could be worser, health wise [Earlier: Biological Clock]. Now a study emerges that fathering younger — as a teen — might lead to more baby health issues.

So, it is with trepidation that WD reports what seems a very positive and healthy story of a father and son planning a joint Boston Marathon (Apr. 21) inspired by concerns for their own health and dedicated to running and raising money for the hospital that faced up to the brain aneurism that threatened the son's life ten years ago.

Naturally, health and marathons bring to mind Team Hoyt, a Massachusetts institution. Dick and son Rick have competed in more than 900 races — father pushing quadriplegic son — and 25 times on Patriots Day in the Boston Marathon. They missed 2007; no word yet on 2008.

** Health is an undefined mix of a dad's heredity and the environment he creates. **
