Crack That Whip!

Today I’m going to lash out – always a fun thing to do – spewing fire, braids a cracking, and the target of my indignation:  fine actress Jamie Lee Curtis.

She wrote an article on her blog on the Huffington Post  criticizing the “anti-aging” movement.  While I like Jamie, and she seems pretty intelligent, she clearly misses point on her scathing post.

I wrote a comment about it which said in so many words:  Active anti agers as a whole are the happiest lot.  They are not the ones complaining about arthritis, fatigue, cancer and heart disease .   They know they will eventually die, but they enjoy the process of pushing that devil back as far as they can.   Though some people fret and obsess with the slow decline of aging, grouping all of us together is like grouping anorexics with all dieters.  Not very smart.

Heres a good analogy:  I look forward to the upcoming Cigna 5K road race in Manchester.  My typical training pace is around 9 minutes a mile right now and I will be competing against some of the worlds best in that race – guys who can run 5 minute miles.  Should I not run because I have no chance of winning?   What do you think Jamie?

    She’s probably thinking about all those aging stars with puffy lips and stretched eyelids. I like to to long-distance walking, myself, and will never win anything but a little fun out of life 🙂
