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.

I just wanted to show off the comfy Barber To Boise race shirt I am going to proudly wear to work.

What is the strangest/best/worst piece of exercise equipment that you own?
