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.
