I am 36 years old, and I regret not taking better care of my physical health when I was younger. Although it’s never too late to start or continue taking care of your health, it gets harder as you get older. Especially if you never developed a regular physical fitness routine.
This climb up Enchanted Rock, in 2010, would have been much easier if I was more physically fit.
I never made it to the top. Luckily, my son preferred not to go all the way up. He found the smooth surface a little too scary. I don’t blame him, I was scared, too. And tired.
Despite having had knee surgery for a detached ligament a few months earlier, my husband did make it to the top. He was determined to prove that the surgery was not going to slow him down. However, he did regret not being more careful in the karate class where he tore the ligament sparring. The black bag on his side is a morphine pump.
