My FAA physical is coming due in a few months. In preparation for this event, I did a good thing, found a doctor here in Chicago and had my annual physical. It’s actually been a year since my last physical so I guess I’m not off track here.

I’m in surprisingly better shape than I anticipated.

As I round the corner to age 50 later this year, I suppose it’s important that I take the best care I can of this vehicle I’m using for this lifetime. I’m looking forward to shedding a few extra pounds when I start cycling again this spring and I’m really looking forward to exploring Chicago and venturing out into the Prairie State on my bike.

It’s good to know that this nearly 50 year old heart should be able to handle the exercise.
