I am safely well past the mid way mark in my life and so can write this post with aplomb. Lady readers of my blog, I hope will be amused and are most welcome to leave any comments that they may believe to be appropriate.
My friend Sandeep and blog-friend Looney both came to mind when I saw this gem in our local newspaper. Since it was not possible to get a link to it, I have scanned it and am reproducing it here and hope that my readers will be able to read it without much trouble. If you want to see an enlarged version, please click on the image.
Another friend, Mayo, used to be a runner till he hurt his knees a while ago and is now confined to bicycling for his exercise.
My question to the three friends, and any others who run or climb mountains, why do you do it?
