You are probably asking yourself, what does my exercise blog have to do with mummies? I'll tell you. With advanced technology such as CT scans, medical imaging and sterolithography we have today we can find out what kind of life style these people led and also what caused their death. Many lived a very short and hard life. Exercise was a matter of survival. They had no choice as to "should I exercise or not today?" or "Where should I go out to eat?" We do have choices and those choices have a great affect on our health and longevity.
I am so grateful that I have the ability and the opportunity to exercise. I am grateful for modern science and medicine that enables me and others to live for longer lengths of time. I am grateful that injuries haven't crippled me and doctors who know how to help fix and correct issues. I glad to know how to rehab and correct problems. I am also grateful for the opportunity to view these mummies and appreciate the life that I have and also the era I'm living in.
It is an amazing exhibit. You should go. You should also exercise. I just had to get that in.
