NYT: “A majority of the athletes at the Senior Games didn’t begin serious training until quite late in life, including me,” she said. “We may have been athletes in high school or college. But then, for most of us, jobs and families and other commitments got in the way, at least for a while.”
Few Senior Olympians returned to or began exercising and training regularly until they were middle-aged or older, she said.“So you can start any time,” she said. “It’s never too late.”
I think I should get back to training. Two years ago, my "fitness age" was thirteen years younger than my chronological. Yesterday, it was one year older. Man, it's been a rough year.
