Age is just a number

Age is just a number…

 

This morning I read that Christie Brinkley is posing in Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue at 63! Yes, you read that right, 63 and its the third time she has done the SI cover.

 

See, age is just a number recently I posted a video on my Facebook page about a women who was 94 and she did this incredible dance routine that most 40 year olds couldn’t do.

 

When I did my triathlon I was¬† passed… Okay, I admit, blow away by a lady that was 69. How did I know her age? We all had them written on our calfs and as she blew passed me that is all I saw…Hello I was 49 and thinking… look at me until granny blew me out of the water.

 

I have a client that is 102 and is all together, there have been older women who do marathons, who are in way better shape than even I am. There is even a Guinness record holder for the oldest women body builder at 80!

Hell, when I went sky diving at 40 there was a mother, daughter and grandmother who jumped with us, she was 78!

 

I plan is grow up to be like them, that grannie who’s on YouTube getting down at a wedding, or breaking records for my age. Yes, I am not planning to go quietly, with regrets about things I should have done and didn’t.

 

I will never say I’m too old…I feel like I’m 25, I still exercise 6 days a week, I ride a bike on the weekends at the beach, I will try anything to keep my body and my mind from getting old.

I will be doing this until I coming to a screeching halt into my grave screaming…what a amazing frigging ride!

 

You decide what you can or cannot do, your mind is the most amazing organ we have, it can do and overcome anything. Men have survived Pow camps, people have survived concentration camps, famine, unimaginable things and still had the will to live and still had the most incredible outlook on life. Look at Anne Frank, Ellie Winsel, Dr. Martin¬† Luther King…people that never gave up and even in the darkest times, never gave up hope.

 

So today my friends remember age is just a number you tell to yourself to set limits on yourself. Remember there is nothing you can’t do if you set your mind to it and believe.
