    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    I have to share this with you guys

    My dad turned 79 yesterday.

    He's religious about his workout routines, has been working out >3-4 times a week for the last 60 or so years (talk about consistency). He has always found time to work out even though he worked full time all his life (still does), had a small farm to run and 3 kids to raise. He was never afraid to be a newb. He went from beginner to serious competitor in greco-roman, basketball, soccer and kayak racing. ALL our family vacations were about going somewhere and doing something insanely straneous. This became ingrained in me, I can't live without 3-4 workouts a week.

    I'm sorry about the rant, not even sure this is the right forum, but did not want to put this on sociocide or loot-liquor-and-ladies......

    This is my dad:

    Kudos to your Dad, and even more Kudos to instilling it in you!

    As a father myself, I know how hard that is to do!

    While we're talking about dads, here's a couple links to the ultimate one. Feel the pain normally associated with not being your best, you selfish pricks.
