Whether it’s due to age, lack of time, loss of interest, lack of convenience, whatever else - what sport are you currently considering giving up and/or taking up?
I’ve been an avid downhill skier all my life. Skied competitively, slalom and GS, in college. Taught my kids and a number of friends to ski over the many years that I’ve enjoyed the sport. But in recent years, perhaps due to my age and the slowly dawning realization that I’m never going to be at my best again, added to the fact that I simply can’t tolerate the cold as well as I used to, I’m seriously thinking of hanging up my boots for good. I know my wife would rejoice at the thought.
Century bike rides are also a thing of the past. I’m lucky to get 25 miles out before I turn around to head back. Just don’t enjoy suffering the way I used to.
What I’ve been thinking of trying recently is paddle boarding. Just standing up and paddling along seems to have this zen type appeal to me. Not to mention that it looks like a hell of a good core workout.
