New Age Group?

I was just thinking, as I was lying in bed last night, that this year will be my last year racing in this age group, and that by IMWI '09 I'll be in the 35-39 AG. I was thinking, "Damn. I'm old."

Then today, I get THIS!

That's right, it's my very own AARP card! "As a member, you'll have the resources and information you need to get the most out of life over 50." Awesome. The world continues to laugh its ass off in my general direction.

I think I look pretty good for 50. The ol' prostate's in solid form, I hardly ever have to use my Rascal Scooter, and I'm yet to Viva Viagra. Who knows, maybe I'll finally hit the podium after all!

Funny how this "racing" stuff changes my age. Before the "racing" stuff I was always "just turned 40", now to make my fitness look better than it is (and to explain my last place finishes) I'm always "Almost 45".

you definitely look good for 50.

i do remember when you turned 25, and how hard that was for you - now i'm there next year. :)

No worries, 50 is the new 20!

"The world continues to laugh its ass off in my general direction." -- made me laugh out loud. Thanks for that.

You're right, though, Brazo -- aging up means a little better shot at some hardware. Looking forward to that myself...eventually...a long, long time from now. What's the Survivor motto? "Outwit, Outplay, Outlast"? Hmmmmm. Something to that, maybe.

My plan too, E. It's the ultimate endurance event - try to outlive everybody around me. If I can do that and still be on the road at 80...Kona bound baby!
