That's the funny part. I've exercised consistently since I was 30. I'm now 58 and I run 15-20 miles a week, lift weights twice, and in the warm weather bike on the weekends. I have fairly extensive osteoarthritis that has reduced my pace from 8:30 minute miles to 10:15 on really good days when running. Lifting weights is affected more by the statin drug I take for cholesterol than the arthritis. My biking is the only thing that doesn't seem affected by my aging. I cruise at 16-18 mph on the flat, 50+ mile rides are Cool | :cool: , and I can still climb the Devil's Backbone[^] (a local half-mile steep hill) without getting up out of the seat most of the time.

Based on the old folks who I saw at my 40th high school reunion a month ago, I don't even like to think what it would have been like if I'd been sedentary all these years. I don't mind the pain from working out so much.
