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.

Just A Little Off

I spend this weekend, and starting this week, just a little off.

Saturday's long run was a little shorter, and a little colder then I wanted it to be. The greenbelt was peaceful because there was no one on it, except for a few bike riders. I really like to be the only one on foot plodding away. Makes me feel a little hardcore.
But these huge balloons made the last 2 miles of my run just that much better. Also seen a coyote and bunnie around those cows that I have all named Dinner out by Harris Ranch & Barber Park.

I actually blame being a little off this week on my consumption of chocolaty treats I cross paths with and am given at work. Must resist carbys this week. I actually feel better when my carbs consumption are low.

Today's Groupon is for Octobers Farm Man Challenge in Meridian. $17 for a the Hellish 6.66 Miler, the Running with the Dead Zombie 5K, or the Xross Challenge actually seems like a deal.

Also, one of my favorite blogs posted today about a potentially great long run recovery drink. ;-)

Do you drink pickle juice to recover? I know my little brother did after football practices in high school. I always laughed at him and thought he was a freak. Now that I know, I don't think it is so weird anymore.
