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. I seen him in the store a week or two before he passed and he was out of it. I googled both their names when I did n…

Merry Christmas To Me

The BF admitted to me a week or so ago that he bought himself an early xmas present. It was just an excuse to buy himself something, which he would have done even if it wasn't the holiday season.

I decided that I needed to buy something for myself too!

I bought 4 items from Brooks online. All gear for running outdoors this winter.

Thermal Tights

Thermal Long Sleeve

Half Zip


I have been a total wuss this Autumn. I have not wanted to go and run outside because of the cooler, almost perfect, weather. Last year this wasn't an issue. I really had only one really bad day where I cut a long run short because I was so cold. This season, I have totally pussed out.

That is the whole reason why I just bought all cold weather gear. No excuses this winter!

Well, there may be one or more two, but I think getting my runs in on a treadmill is better then not at all.

What is your favorite piece of winter/cold weather gear?


  1. I love my Athleta tights. They keep my legs just the right temp and they have cute reflective swirls for high visibility on my morning runs.

    Gotta check out Brooks tights. They look cute!

    1. I love everything I have from Athleta. I don't have the tights though.

  2. I really do love anything by Brooks! :) Awesome gear girl!

  3. I have all of those items! The shirt and the 1/4 zip I have in a different color. The thermal tights are AWESOME. I have two pairs of them because I wear them so often. I do not like to be cold when I am out running. Love Brooks! Great product, fantastic company, stellar customer service. Can't go wrong. 90% of my workout clothes are Brooks and all of my running shoes are.

    1. Glad I made a good choice about my present. :-)
