Be sure to check out Mark Sisson’s piece, “What is the Primal Blueprint?”
Here is the overall premise of the article:
Most of life is really much simpler than modern medicine and science would like to have you believe. You can have a tremendous impact on how your genes express themselves, simply by providing your cells the right environments. All you need is a basic understanding of how your body works and a simple philosophical roadmap you can use to find answers to just about any questions of health and fitness – whether it involves personal choices or lifestyle adjustments or whether medical intervention might be appropriate.
Here are his ten “rules of living”:
1. Eat lots of animals, insects and plants
2. Move around a lot at a slow pace
3. Lift heavy things
4. Run really fast every once in a while
5. Get lots of sleep
7. Get some sunlight every day
8. Avoid trauma
9. Avoid poisonous things
10. Use your mind

Hi Mark. You’re welcome! Yes, there’s a very fascinating subculture that frequents the lakefront before the lifeguards arrive. We at Open Water Chicago are proud to be a part of that roguery…
Well done summary, thanks for the shout out. And I love the photos on your site, great shot of the BMXer ramping into the big blue!
