ACk, the bombs of truth from Rafe and Mike are making me feel very inadequate. I used to coach -- and before that, participate in -- rowing and now I work a desk job at a university and come home to play WoW. The job change has made buying a house possible, but severely effected my health and fitness and it is all my fault.Guilty flab monster is guilty.*jots note to take dog for a walk, then cook, not order, dinner.*

@quasar: You're far from alone in that. I played soccer for years as a kid/teen (and was even a FIFA-certified referee for a couple of summers, though I stuck to officiating under-10 games), but I've been a desk jockey for the last fifteen.We remember how awesome we *used to be* and see how much we've backpedaled, and it can be disheartening... or it can be inspiring and motivating.
