And screw the cardiologist! If you loved biking, then do it anyway. It will make your heart stronger.

Why no arch support and cushioning?

Most people don't need it. What all that support does is take over the job that our feet, and lower legs should be doing, thus weakening them. These minimalist shoes also have a larger toe box so that our toes have room to spread out, and function normally. But if you should ever switch over, do it gradually to give yourself time to adjust. Especially if you wear heels. Too much cushioning, and we lose ground feel. Not enough, and walking/running on hard surfaces is uncomfortable. My Altras are the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn.

I stopped coloring my hair and worrying about looking older. (That was a big step for me.)

Otherwise, nothing yet, except for not caring so much about what other people thought.

I no longer take unnecessary risks. In the idiocy of my youth, I went skydiving several times. Would never do that now. I'm more deliberate and aware of unlikely outcomes.

Me too. I'm trying to avoid getting myself killed ahead of time doing something foolish. At least if I can help it, lol.
