On a typical Friday night I am
resting up for a long run on Saturday morning. You should ask me
what I do on a typical Saturday night ;)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am sensitive to ageists. They are just like people who are
racists, or homophobes or intolerant of other faiths. They have a
blind spot for anyone over a certain age. Their loss.
