I am about the same age. I used to be a runner (decades ago). Been cycling since 2010. I ride a solid 2000 miles a year. I know one of these years... I won't be able to make my mileage goal. And eventually I won't be able to ride... or breathe.

Meanwhile I act like it doesn't matter. I watch cycling movies in winter. I workout with weights. I ride a bike on a trainer some. And... Monday is senior day at a local movie theater. Come spring... I'll enjoy the process of starting over. And with a bit of luck... I'll ride my 2000 miles.

P.S. I bought new winter cycling gloves at the LBS today. And Amazon is delivering ski goggles.
