State of mind

What is really growing old? Is it our bodies or our minds. When I ran in track we were taught that our minds will tire before our bodies. That is the same with growing old.

Take two places and their different view of growing old. In Miami Florida people who are in their sixties and seventies are more at the doctors than enjoying their lives. They are either walking with walkers or canes. By eighty they are in nursing homes. Where as in the fittest state in the union, Colorado, they are riding their bikes through the mountains of Vail. Breathing the brisk air. Extremely healthy.

I am sixty and I will be damned if I am going to let age control me.

And the doctors want you to grow old and become dependent. It is a state of mind.
