We had some friends round for dinner at the weekend and my mates wife made us all laugh with some of her observations. We were talking about running and the subject of age came up. My wife and the other friends are all 43/44 but I'm 49 in April to which she was shocked. She is only 35, but then she made me feel really old by telling me that I was the oldest person she knew!!!
Then she asked what my plans were for my 50th and I told her I was going to run a marathon on the day to which she exclaimed 'No! You'll die!'.
She was, genuinely, surprised that I would consider doing this at such an advanced age.
Anyone else experienced such ageism?
