Is It Just Me or Is It Us

This year I turn 70.  I remember asking my 90 year old mother at what age did she begin to feel old and her response was 70.

I don’t feel old.  At least not yet.  I walk 3 miles each day and I'm able to do a mile in just under 15 minutes - that’s 4 miles per hour.  I’ve been doing this for 15 or more years.

Today my wife and I joined LAFitness.  I know my upper body needs a workout too, so that’s my plan.  I’m excited.

We all age differently.  I have friends who are much younger than me.  I would swear they are in their eighties from their appearance. 

But, age is relative. 

When I was young, I thought my 69 year old father was ancient. 

He died at 69.  That’s why I walk.
