Forever young?

When we run in the morning, my wife and I always ask each other “how do you feel?” meaning “are you joints hurting, is everything alright?” In many ways we've never felt better and could say that we feel as good as when we were thirty years old. That's not entirely true of course.

For one thing, we're extremely conscious that the health and mobility we still enjoy is a fleeting asset and that's why we check its level so frequently. I'm not saying we're waiting for the proverbial “other shoe to drop” but we certainly are quite aware that we must stay alert about, and be extremely grateful for what we have.

Do we think we have peaked physically? You bet, but we've not given up and are not going to throw the towel any time soon, so that's why, deep inside, we keep on believing that we're forever young!
