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…

My Burrito Baby

I finally got in a very slow and sloggy run. I have not ran since Sunday, and it makes me sad working 60 hour weeks. I did include some crosswalks and I was picking up cans for recycling and such during the time below. But I felt SO sloooow in my leg turnover.

I ate a Baja Fresh steak & shrimp burrito for dinner before my run. That thing was gone in a flash. I was so hungry. I had a bagel with PB & banana for brekky and the best flavor of yogurt for lunch. You are welcome to figure out my calories for me. I'm too lazy/tired/busy to type it into DailyPlate.
Sorta what I had but with steak... link source

Yea. I can eat anything before a run and even during with the exception of caffeine in my gels. Not much upsets my gut where I am looking at bushes to see if they provide enough bun cover.  But I am now sure burritos are one thing that make running quite unpleasant. I really felt like I had a bun in the oven tonight.

And after the burrito, I think I know what it feels like to run while preggy. I had a burrito baby in me. ugh. I can NOT imagine running at 9 months though! 

I am thankful for black clothing items and the time change making it dark at 6:30pm. Because girlfriend was a bloated, uncomfortable beast.

How are you doing with the time change? What is one thing that you can not eat before a run?

FYI Boise peeps. There are homeless under the Veterans bridge at night and someone has a sleeping bag all set up at the new Pleasanton river park porto changing area.


  1. Is it weird I've never had a burrito? I am fine with the time change, alas my dogs are still on their old schedule. Ugh.

  2. I can't believe you can run after eating that! Wow. Stomach of steel. Thanks for the info about the homeless people. :-( So sad
