Better late than never

without comments


“I also wanted to prove to the world that you don’t have to put an age limit on your dreams, that the real reason most of us fear middle age is that middle age is when we give up on ourselves.”

~ Dara Torres, first American swimmer to have competed in 5 Olympic Games, the last when she was 41 and a mother

Hence the recent trend of people suddenly becoming marathoners/ biathletes/ cyclists as they approach or hit middle age. Of course, having a ready community of like-minded middle-agers helps a lot too.

Oh, if only to feel young again.

Oh, if only to feel alive again.
