Yes, it's strange. Mentally you're still there. Even still there ninth grade like. But unless you've made a conscious effort to stay pretty much in tip top shape, the deficiencies show themselves early on.
Looks like I will be having a chance to go skiing in March, but gravity is doing all the work there, so doesn't count. I had to help a friend do a controlled burn on his fifty acres yesterday, and it was quite an effort to go up and down the hill with my blower to keep the flames away from the dry weeds. Reality check. Yea, reality check. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <awoelflebater@...> wrote : Well, from one jock to the next, I remember the bloody wind sprints and all the rest of it. I managed to "make" the track team which was comprised of 9-12 graders even though I was in 8th grade. I could sprint the 100m like the wind and we competed all over Europe when I attended school in London. I was fast (only beaten once), but it was all adrenaline. I was also on a few other varsity teams and even tried my hand at hurdling while still in London but that takes some guts. I just liked pure speed without the obstacles, thank you very much. And at the ripe old age of 59 I'm still stupid enough to climb on the back of a horse every day. I figure, if you don't take a few life-threatening chances at least a few times a day you might as well be dead. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <awoelflebater@...> wrote : ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <dhamiltony2k5@...> wrote : Yes, the meditating Fairfield folkart community gathered enjoying its annual marathon viewing of the Arts&E 1995 Pride and Prejudice as contrast to the professional football stupid bowl of damaged brains. Other than Steve and maybe Mike, to a lesser degree, there isn't a jock on this forum. I don't think any of the men and women who post here, or who used to post here, ever lifted a tennis racket, kicked a football or threw a pitch in their lives. They all remind me of pasty couch potatoes and probably the most active thing any of them have done is lift a tome off a book shelf or bounced around on a large piece of foam.
