Well according to post #65, you and I are old Capstan (I'm 67). Never mind that I outsprinted somebody over 20 years my junior at the end of a 10k race yesterday (I was 198th out of 367 runners) or that I ran another 8k with my running club straight after that, I'm classed as old.

(Of course I was too jiggered to do anything for the rest of the day but that's beside the point...)

Maybe because I'm rapidly approaching that age myself, I don't consider people in their 60's "old".

Someone that can run a 10K race at age 67 isn't "old". As a nurse, I tend to see "old" people.....I recently took care of a 53 year old, that was obese, heart failure, arthritis and a myriad of other problems that were mostly lifestyle related, and I would consider him "old".

As was pointed out, the number only tells part of the story.

I'm 56 years young. I feel great, yoga helps keep me grounded and limber, and my vegan lifestyle feeds my body and spirit.

I'm 51 now. Seems quite the middle to me, but my feet hurt. Sometimes when I walk I get that "old people" walk. I can feel it.
I hate how sometimes I'll look in the mirror and think I look just like 30, and other times I feel I look way older than I should.
I would love a lift to get rid of the facial jowly sag

42 here...guess i am the "young one" in the bunch lol. I still look way younger than I am which I am now grateful for. I used to wish I would look older when I was a teenager. Not no more...
