The Age-Old Question: How old is too old?
My DH and I went to Utah on vacation. While there we had a blast hiking, rafting, 4-wheeling, canyoneering, and rock climbing. Hiking and mountain biking are things we have always done. We are in pretty good shape for 57 and 39 year olds. However, while there we fell in love with the sport of Rock Climbing. While living in Houston doesn't seem to present an abundance of opportunity to rock climb, Austin isn't that far (and my daughter being at university about 30 minutes away from Austin seems fortuitous). Plus, there are 3 rock gyms within 1 hour of me. I was so ready to take up the sport I have already purchased harnesses and gear for us as well as passes to the nearest gym. My husband and I have been debating on how old is too old. He is of the opinion that "we" are too old to start up a new hobby. That rock climbing is too strenuous and we will not continue on this path unless we lived in an environment that fostered the sport (ie: Utah). I am of the opinion that life is too short!
