What are your goals in retirement? For many of us, participating in favorite sports is high on our list. Mix in some healthy competition and new friendships and you have a winning combination! Today we talk to Brad Allen, one of our few working and non-retired guests about his role in the North Carolina Senior Games. Yes, you read that right! Brad is not retired! However, I think he will shed some very important knowledge on the senior games that are held in all 50 states and we will give him some encouragement to continue working for that ultimate goal to reach retirement bliss! Thanks Brad for your great senior games advice!
