And let's not forget about Dedly Nedly Overend, who seemingly has not lost a step!

Good momentum building with your aging topic/posts Joel. I will comment that while I'd be interested in finding the real truth in the numbers as we age, I don't expect anything that will rock my perspective. Actually, the folks I'm looking at as the new benchmarks with respect to changing the game of age performance speak of how they...think. I have concluded the opportunity for science, sport and our general well being will come with how the brain/mind offsets our physiology over time. Science is just now beginning to understand our brains plasticity...with much more to learn regarding how our mind leverage that re-wiring potential. There are many examples out there of admired maturing athletes (like Ned O posted by Robert Zeidler) who simply "think" differently than what the standard physiological clock dictates. Do numbers matter...sure...but the performance I'm witnessing by some greatly outstrips what those numbers could, by themselves, produce. BTW, "Outside" has a treatment of aging in their current "special life-hacking issue". While I'm 56, I found the 65+ segment both interesting and encouraging. Thanks for your work Joel!
