Feeling My Body Age

Annie and I played two soccer games today wrapped around a five mile walk. We're now playing on two different teams two times a week. A few years ago in Chicago, two or three games a week was nothing and my body would bounce back quickly. Now my muscles ache more and last longer. Age is an ever present silent traveling partner.

Five years ago, over lunch, my cousin Mike from Germany told me that once I hit thirty the belly pops out and athleticism goes down. Six months away from 30 and I'm using his words as motivation to make sure both don't happen. There are plenty of great examples of 50+ people in great health who play sports. But I'm guessing from this point on, it doesn't get any easier. Age will keep marching on whether I like it or not.
