Being in my mid-forties, I've found that more and more of my old friends no longer care much for athletic activity. Nowadays, if I want to play a game of say basketball or tackle football I have to call up on my nephews instead. Hell, just getting them to do low-impact sports such as biking or what have you can be a real chore - sob stories of sore knees and aching backs and blah blah blah. These people just don't seem to get the connection between lack of exercise and fatigue. Never ceases to amaze me.
Now I admit I'm a bit to the extreme (not at all afraid of injury, skateboards and rock-climbing included), but surely I'm not the only old guy out there that values being fit?
So what about you guys? How important is staying healthy and active to you?
