Is anyone else feeling older? I know, I know, I’m going to hear from people much older than I am telling me that I don’t know what I’m talking about…and I admit that, in a way, I don’t. But in a way I do. But back to the point.
My point is this, I have noticed more aches and pains as I age. Some annoying, some chronic and some worse. But I have also noticed something else recently. It started when my boys started running cross country. That means they have to practice. Sometimes I drive them to practice so I decided why not? My body aches when I am not working out…why not give it a reason to hurt? At least this way I am getting some benefit!
The day after I made this decision I drove the boys to the track and just as we stepped out of the van another car arrived. Out of it stepped a couple in their 70’s. As they headed to the track I noticed that man was moving much slower and his wife had gone on ahead. Watching as we all began circling the track I noticed the man showed signs of having had a stroke in the past. But there he was.
He walked for at least a mile before they left and each lap he inspired me more and more. He was taking control and choosing his pain…or maybe his pleasure.
