  1. [...] It’s funny that I wasn’t really looking forward to swimming today. The crowds, the chlorine, the hassle of suiting up—all worth overcoming only to gently exercise my lower back.

Other than yoga, I can’t think of a better form of exercise to keep aging bodies youthful. Perhaps that’s why competitive swimmers tend to have longer careers than athletes in almost any other sport. Check out these athletes over 50 who are still going strong. [...]
