    Near 50 - time to try and compete

    So, talked it over with my better half and have decided to try my first competition next year after I turn 50. Looking forward to the road ahead with trepidation and excitement. Will be an interesting trek ahead... More as we go!!

    Thanks guys - looking forward to it. There's a lot of work to be done - not only in preparation, but also just to find the right contest. Shooting for October or November of 2015. Also have to find the right category...other than Novice, will have to shoot for probably 95 kg, as I think 100 kg is too heavy for me at a contest weight. Anyway - that decision can wait - just lots to consider - it's all good fun now. Cheers! Dave

    Dude, go for it! It's exhilarating and keeps you motivated to work toward the big contest date. I started training when I was 15 and now, after 35 years, am turning 50 in about 2 weeks! I've decided to get back on the stage. There's some amazingly jacked guys over 50 out there and it's very competitive these days. Good luck!
