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.

Quick break and then finished the last 3 miles at 5.0-6.0 at the end. I really wanted to stop and walk after the 3rd mile, but decided to push on. I just had everything timed just right to finish 4 miles at the end of the Daily Show.

Got ice on my knee for a few more minutes and I will spend tomorrow doing some major stretching! I will be doing a few minutes of some good foam rolling! 

What do you say to yourself to push through until the end of a workout? I was just saying KEEP GOING over and over again.
