Thanksgiving Day Humor at our gathering, courtesy of today's Dilbert



So, when the family gathered late this afternoon for Thanksgiving dinner at our house, in-laws and others all asked, at different times, "Hey, Joe, did you read Dilbert this morning?"

Yes I did. And, as a 53 year-old marathon runner, it was within a single digit of hitting right on the money.

One relative asked "So, does 53 feel old?" "Only if you are in your 20s" I replied.

Yeesh.

So I smile. Even if the ITB hassled me during my meager 4 mile run today, I'll stick with it, 53 or not. With weather in the mid 60s, light whispy clouds in a beautiful blue sky on Thanksgiving Day in Indiana, who cares? It was a beautiful day and I enjoyed it.

Persevere. Gums and all.

i read that one this morning too -- i think it says more about that boss (can't think of his name) than marathoners being 54. (which, btw is not old) :o)

I believe that you're only as old as you feel. And, if you're running marathons, there's nothing old about you. Keep it up! :)
