    Default preserve the body you might need it someday

    Lets see, hmm, arthritis in the right hand from brick and ice breaking, runners knee, knee cap floats , from that flying knife edge over those four guys and motorcycle to break the board, I crashed and burned, twice.
    Hyperextended elbow from elbow breaks, dancers break in the foot from knife edge kicking a two by four. A bunch of ribs and, oh yeah, that flat spot on the bridge of my nose.
    And I'm the guy that in the dojo was considered Mr. cautious by most. But at 55 I can still run 12 miles in a good time, chop wood, snow shoe and cross country ski, unlike a few of my mates that ache with every chill wind and can hardly stand if they sit to long.
    Lesson:
    The body you were born with is the one you're stuck with. Take care of it and it will take care of you for decades to come, pain free if you're lucky.

    jeez and I thought my measly broken rib was a big deal.
