Is it totally absurd to consider starting on the path to a degree in physical therapy/kinesiology at the age of 44?

I would need to start with probably two years of undergrad pre-requisites like anatomy/physiology, chemistry, bio, and statistics before even applying to the doctoral or masters programs, which themselves are 3 years usually. So let's say it's a 5 year investment and I get a degree and I go looking for jobs at the ripe age of 50. Am I kidding myself? Will I be too old to even be considered or does age not figure into a job like this. Anyone out there done this and have experiences they can relate?
