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. (Going on a cruise a couple times a year is not helping with that savings.) At what age should I sign up for AARP?

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.

Run Time, Then Nap Time?

Sunday was a long run day. I was scheduled for 7, but I did 8 miles instead. I think all of my miles were around 13:00. I was tired, and it was hot-100 degrees outside. And of course, Ghetto Renew didn't have the AC on as cool as I would have liked it. It had to have been over 75 inside the building. Maybe when they open the new location... everything will work a little more like a professionally run business.

Afterward was dinner with the BF and his family. I had this yummy sushi at Sushi Joy. In my opinion, the best place to eat sushi in Boise. My tummy was really happy when I left that place.

Then it was home. I don't know why but I just sat down to watch TV and immediately nodded off. It was only 8pm, and I got nearly 12 hours of sleep the night before. I don't know why, but after my runs, I get really sleepy. My diet is as healthy as ever, I take a multivitamin, my water intake is always good, but any run over 5 miles (which is all I have on the schedule until November), I just have to sleep.

I was thinking that it has to do with the adrenaline and all those other hormones getting boosted during a run, and then dropping a few hours later when I calm down. I don't know. Does anyone have this problem also?
