Whew! This is work!


Ok, I've decided that even though my birth certificate can prove that I'm 50, I'm going to fight it, after all there is a young guy inside of me and he doesn't want to live in a old man's body!

So where is this going? Well I've been told for awhile now that I should be getting some exercise, and yes I know it's good for me, but it's just tough after being on my feet all day to go out and take a brisk walk, uh- uh no fun. So last week I was cleaning up the garage and noticed my old bike hanging in the rafters, I thought, yea, I could do that, so down it came. I cleaned it up, put new tubes and tires on it and took it for a spin. It still works, and you know what, so do I!

So here I am, a middle aged man bent over a 1970's Schwinn 10 speed peddling my heart out, getting my exercise a couple days a week and I've found out something...Whew! This is work!

(Ok, so that's not me in the picture but he looks better on a bike!)

I don't know - with the shorts and the helmet you'd look pretty cute too!

Good for you... Excerise never hurt anyone, at least that's what I've heard, LOL

Good for you! And I think you should get some cute little biker shorts and one of those shark type helmets too! I bet you would go faster then... :)

That's awesome. It may hurt while your exercising but you sure feel good once your done. Keep it up

Good for you. You should call Mark for a ride together. He's been trying to ride his bike more often too- and I think his is about that same age too because it was his when he was in high school!

Good for you, Bob! Can't fool us...that's you in the picture. You just don't want to brag about how buffed you are from riding your bike on the sly. You go boy!!
