Age is No Longer an Indictment

My inbox today contained an email from Boomer Chronicles about the oldest athletes participating in the Olympics this year. There are two equestrians in their 60’s, six in their fifties, including the oldest American and three in their 40’s.

I saw this sight yesterday on a Santa Barbara Beach. It’s hard to tell his exact age, but the gray hair and the way he walked told me he was past our image of the typical surfer.

That's cool that he's surfing. Hey, let's trade links!

Yes, the Olympics have quite a few older athletes this year - more power to them! It just goes to show that anything is possible if you put your mind to it - no excuses!
