Much much much better now.
Just watched a video of a man over 100 years old who did a full marathon. He beat my time from when I did mine at 52.
Ditto caramix - we need to break the stereotypes of age. Life isn't all about the young. We don't turn invisible as we age. We don't lose interest in fun and physical things. And we need to stop acting like grey hair, wrinkles, and saggy bits are the end of the world.
Exactly, jeepcurls "old" is a subjective term that people just throw around. I've seen a few more strands of grey lately and I turn 41 in August but I don't consider it the end of the world. BTW, I saw your photo page, you have beautiful hair.
