Back 16 years ago (so I was only 42 or so) I was swimming at the U of M pool with friends in a masters swim group.....a young 20 something girl ended up in our lane and half way through our workout she burst out "you guys are great!...out here swimming your age...you are inspiration to me!"
ha!....that was the moment I realized I had crossed over and was old enough to be "inspirational"!
Someone asked my age today. I told him. He was amazed. How did you do it?
What could I say? One day at a time. What else?
