Was just able to knock out 3 miles in less than 24 minutes...getting back into a little bit of fitness after about a year fighting a meniscus tear in my right knee. Getting old sucks folks...there's no bones about it, so if you can avoid it without dying...go for it.
My biggest problem is I've still got the active mind I had when I was in my 20's...I think I can do anything I want, try any sport, lift any weight, whatever it may be physically, my mind is still very willing, but the body needs some coaxing most days.
Watched my oldest (15) head off to camp for a couple days this morning. Saddens me a bit at how quick they grow up. Love that kid to bits and I know in a few years, he'll be out of the house and doing his own thing. As much as I want to prepare him to face life without my help...I don't really want it to happen either.
Ok..that got a bit too deep. Carry on
