This morning, while driving back through the park after dropping off the oldest man child.... I had a very encouraging thought. In nine years, my youngest will be out of high school and in nine years I will still be younger than multitudes of people in Greenville, who can currently kick my ass on the bike. No, don't misunderstand....in nine years...I'll still be younger than they are now.
Granted, many riders are close to my age.... but many riders are also... closer to Rob's age...heh heh heh. So, as long as I maintain what little fitness I do have...hopefully, when the youngest has left the nest, I'll have many years and many miles left in my tootsies.
For some reason, that was a very sweet thought on a early Monday morning.
