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.

3.11 miles. 13:06 pace. I had to stop and take pics along the way.

The parks were so full! All the schools were having field trips and picnics for the end of the school year. I passed this little 8-ish year old saying something to his friends about "it was based on a book in 1957." Really. It was super cute.

There was no one at the golf course.

But I noticed this motivation for someone.

I don't know who Kathee is, but hopefully she got the memo.  :-)

What was your workout today? What sort of sunscreen do you use?
