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.

Live to Bfit 5K Run/Walk

Tomorrow, the Live to BFit 5K is at 11am.

I will be there with my new Garmin toy.

I am looking forward to the run in the morning. I want to get a long run in also. A run after of 10 or more miles will make me hit what my training schedule has planned out.

Hopefully, I will see you at the run tomorrow! I will have a report and pictures of the run this weekend.


  1. Thanks! It's my 1st 5k & I am looking forward to being part of it.
