There was a time when a bloke, having mid-life crisis, used to buy a motor bike or a sports car.
We mid-lifers are just as likely to buy an expensive new road cycle (tick) or attempt a physical challenge like a triathlon (er, tick) or marathon (tick-ish, got sick and never ran).
Just when I felt like a walking, running, pedalling cliche - they threw in the kicker.
There's no such thing as a mid-life crisis. It's just a handy excuse for 'human misbehaviour'. Brilliant. All part of my on-going plan to age (dis)gracefully.
