My wife virtually kicked me out of the house once and said 'don't  
come back until you race!' OK, she didn't actually kick me out but  
threatened to until I gave in. (What a role reversal!) Really, it's  
only as dangerous as you make it - risk a little, risk a lot, it's  
largely up to you.

Of course, the age thing is hilarious, I get it a bit at the track  
but REALLY get it at the gym. Try explaining veterans wrestling, or  
that the guy you work out with just came home with another world  
championship - at 56.

Growing old sucks. Not growing old is worse. Worst of all is sitting  
around waiting for it, which damned few people on this list do.
