"Extreme" is in the title. If you're explicitly stating that you're responding to "midlife" I can't be expected to presume you're opting out of "extreme."

    My point had nothing to do with the distance, I was just saying that resorting to athleticism in the face of depression has little to do with how old you are.

I agree with that. I also dispute there's anything new about it. Average age of NY marathon runners in 1980 was 37. In 2011 it was 41.

There's a difference between "hey I do that too" and "NO I'M EXTREME"

What do you want, an apology?

Chilling with the holier-than-thou when you barged into my inbox pulling the same shit you accused me of would be nice.

I fuckin' agreed with you, dude. At this point -

No, you know what? Fukkit. Sorry. As you were. Yay bike solidarity. Say hi to Germany for me.

Tell LA hi for me, and keep swimming, you'll be home again soon :)
