I wonder. Because I’ve been 30 for about a week now, and it still hasn’t quite set in. I mean, I’ve still got hair, and people think that i’m 20. Last week, I was training at my gym, and I was spending some time doing bagwork. The dude next to me struck up a conversation and naturally, the subject sorta drifted towards our age.
“So, are you a pro fighter?”
“Me? Nah, I just do this for fun. You?”
“*rubs his midsection*, I’m just trying to lose this belly fat. I’m 28, so I figure that it’s high time that I do somethin’ for my body, y’know?”
“Um…I’m 30 :P.”
“WHAT. NO WAY. YOU LOOK LIKE YOU’RE IN COLLEGE!”
I’d like to think that those years spent doing taekwondo and all those other martial arts played a role in keeping my boyish charms. Though I still need to burn off this fat, it’s starting to become a hassle carrying it around when I train.
