Two links to great NYT articles on exercise

Strength training and cognitive function in women.
New York Times article
Study shows that lifting weights (free weights or machines) is better at improving cognitive function in older women than 'toning' exercising and balance training. Interesting results.

How Exercise keeps your cells young
New York Times article
Study followed long distance runners over 40. People who put on around 50 miles looked younger on a cellular level than sedentary counterparts.

Thanks for passing them along Anna. If any of you have read anything interesting, send me the link and I"ll post it for everyone to see.
