Nah, it's not a biggie. I'm 53 right now.
I played paintball once about 12 years back when a buddy from work got us into it. Liked it but never got around to getting out again until this past October when I had to miss the office paintball day because I was riding in a motorcycle race. Yeah, another "young" guy's sport that I left until almost too late...
It bugged me that I had to miss out on it and suddenly it occured to me that I didn't need the office to go and try it. And like they say, the rest is history......
For some odd reason I find that I seem to have left all the physically challenging sports and hobbies until it's almost too late. I've also been mountain biking on a more or less beginner level as well for a few years now. And considering that up here is the home of the famous "Shore" or Northshore mountain riding mecca even at a beginner level it's quite challenging. I've had a few spills and can more or less do 3 foot drops but that's about where I draw the line on that.
... So... maybe I should have gone for the user name of "Gramps"?...
