    Re: Getting Older

    I'm 41 now, but really don't feel too different than when I was 21. I've gained about 20 pounds of weight, but am also stronger than I used to be. Running a mile will definetly get me winded, but heck it would have been the same for me 20 years ago.

    My 5, 3, and 1 year olds keep me plenty busy and while I don't have a lot of time for exercise right now am sure I'll get back into the biking and hiking mode that I've always enjoyed sooner or later. One of my goals in life is to hike the Grand Canyon.

    It's not how long you live, but how good you live that counts. I believe moderation is the key to most things. Don't eat too much, don't drink too much, but enjoy your self! Throw humor out as much as you can and don't take anybody(including yourself) too seriously. Read a book now and then and don't be afraid to try new things and meet new people. Enjoy your family and cherish every moment, because they will slip away soon enough.

    That's the way I plan to live the rest of my life.

    Re: Getting Older

    At 42, I'd decided to just give up, and get fat and lazy.

    Then, I moved here, and started running into some of the world's military elite troops. Some of them are 40s-50s and in marvelous shape. Then, I started working out at their gym.

    Now, at 44, I'm in nearly the best shape of my life, and I was a college athlete.

    Resting heart rate of 41. BP of 117 over 48. 2 mile run time of around 13:30. Weight at 5'9" of 170, down from 234.

    And all of this with an untreated fractured vertebrate, that impinges on my sciatic nerve, a partially traumatically-disassociated (and later reattached/rebuilt) left leg, and both collar bones broken, but untreated from years ago.

    One of my reasons for dumping all the weight and getting in shape, is that my beautiful wife of 20 years deserves a nice hard body to tussle with, and I wanted it to be mine. Just two years of hard work and discipline (none of it was really THAT hard, either) and except for the glasses and the balding head, I could pose for Harlequin book covers....

    Try Bacadi Diet, zero calories. Somewhere around 25, the hangovers start getting worse and all of a sudden, you can't string two nights together. Next thing you know, you're in your 30's and some weekends, you don't drink at all (or no more than a couple of beers). The only way to avoid this is if you keep going hard multiple days a week like you did in college. I have a buddy who did that...probably not too good for his health, though.

    My magical hangover cure? Drink whiskey and water....you might start out with some sprite mixed with your water to begin cause it'll taste like butt if you aren't used to it. But it's an acquired taste and you won't want to go back when you don't get dehydrated and you wake up without headaches or cotton mouth.

    Ladies you could also go with my buddy's idea to cure a hangover...pedialite and vodka



    Im just glad I have Homan as my bodyguard, Eustachy joked. If I ever make it real big and get to drive a limo everyday, hell be driving it. I thought he came off the bench like somebody was stealing his cow or something.

    I totally agree with not letting just anyone poke away. I had my ACL repaired and went back in a couple days after and had quite a bit of fluid on my knee. Some newby came in and stuck the big sow needle in my knee and in the process of moving it around scratched up against the ball of my femur. I didn't think you had feeling in your bones but that experience taught me differently that is for sure.

    Then when our oldest was 2 she got pneumonia and got pretty dehydrated. In the process of finding a place to give her an IV, the gal tried the top of her right hand, then the top of her left hand, then her right ankle, then her left ankle. Then someone else stepped in and got one in the side of her stinking skull. I was about one more poke from going ballistically postal on somebody......

    I am 25 and my back has hurt for the better half of a week for no apparent reason and my knees are basically shot. Can't wait to see what it's like when I am 50.

    Re: Getting Older

    OK.... After viewing the age poll, it's apparent the majority of posters on this site are 28 or less. I've been MARRIED for 27 years. You think your back hurts? Wait until you've lived with a woman that's meaner than a snake for 27 years. At least she keeps my on my toes...

    Seriously, I love my wife. She is mean though.

    Here's something that made me feel really old today.

    I got this in my Google Alerts, because I have one set up for anything Cyclones.

    I used to coach this kid in T-ball. He and his parents are family friends.

    I saw that. Concerning the Iowa State stuff...I know the family are ISU supporters; I wonder if he just said he likes Cornhusker football because he was moving to Omaha.
