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.

The Real Start of Spring

Yesterday, the 1st day of Spring, was snowy, windy rainy, cloudy, and cold.

And since the last few days were pretty crappy, I have not shaved my legs in 2 days. So I had to wear long pants to slog today. Anything over 50 is just too warm for long pants.
Just a quick, yikes - or not so quick, slog on the greenbelt.

So called morning runs for me, my body is stiff and not awake, and it is not easy. I had a runner dude tell me something like "looking good. keep it up." I know my stride was not feeling smooth and easy. I must of looked like a newbie runner. And that is the only reason why I think he told me that.

All the male runners that I passed were super friendly and said Hi. All the girl runners that I passed today were not nearly as friendly as the males and we ignored each other. I guess we are a catty bitchy bunch.

I am actually not catty and not bitchy - yet. ;-)

What was your workout today?

How is your Spring weather?
