Someone commented this week during a Mardi Gras parade that they enjoyed keeping up with my Friday FITx50 posts. They thought it was funny that I veered away from physical fitness and began focusing on other aspects of being fit.
I have to admit, it wasn’t anything purposeful. Looking back I saw where the transition began, and I think that was the point “fitness” truly began to mean more to me than physical accomplishments.
I do look forward to turning 50 (HINT: March 11) and not because I can bicycle further than when I was 25 or do more pushups than in my 30’s. It’s because I’ve been blessed with almost 50 years of life on this earth.
It really has been an evolution of understanding what being FITx50 really means. And while physical prowess is important, so is developing the whole man turning 50 – the son, the dad, the brother, the friend, the neighbor, the human.
Until next week, here’s to getting your old-school strongman on.
