Aging and My Mid-Life Crisis

I can't believe that I am now 40. It sounds SO OLD. But I don't feel like I should be THAT old. Its depressing. I think I'm having a harder time accepting this then I did for when I turned 30.

It's scary. To be frank and a little macabre, you have to start planning for end of life stuff. There is a lot I have yet to do with my life. But to be planning old people stuff, its scary.

How much longer am I going to live? How can I do this the healthiest that I possibly can? Should I buy life insurance for my other half and I? How can I increase our retirement savings.

I had one friend die of Pancreatic cancer this past year. It hit him hard and sadly fast. I had another friend in November pass due to complications with pneumonia and his diabetes.

At mile 2, there was a gust of Stan's greasy goodness odor coming in from next door. It was odd. Maybe the HVAC system has something wrong with it in the whole building. It was like I was in Stan's kitchen, not a dusty gym. It is really hard working out on the treadmill, watching Man Vs Food and smelling hot dogs cooking.

My knee was bothering me a little. And the ball of my left foot. I've had nothing but problems since getting Brooks Adrenaline 11's over a month ago. I'm going to have to take them back and try something else.
