Hey, guys and gals, I made it to 65! This is sort of a milestone to me, as my dad died at 61, and my two best friends from high school and college both died several years back. So I consider myself very lucky to have made it.
Yesterday, my wife and I rode our bikes several miles down the trail, did a 4 mile charity walk, then rode back. The day before we did a 16 mile ride together. I can still bench press over 200 pounds, and I look pretty good, if I say so myself.
I seem ro be handling the atrial fibrillation okay, and, while I am getting just a few of those strange "twinges" from the Trigeminal Neuralgia lately, all-in-all I am doing great!
So, best wishes to all of you other 50+ bicyclists who are hanging in there, and a long and productive life to everyone!
This is a MOMENTOUS day!
(And, best of all, I am only 137 miles away from my 2004 goal that I set in January) -
and to make it official, I now have a MEDICARE card (those of you in the USA will know about this)
