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.

I love the 11am start time. And the Hawks Stadium is so close to where I live, I am going to ride my bike there.

BBQ (although on the site it says Port Of Subs will be there with sammys. BBQ'ed sammys?). Beer Garden. Bouncy houses.

Their Facebook says they got a delivery of QuestBars for the event. And people sure seem to love those on the Twitterverse. 

Downside is that the race is just a couple days away and there is NO info about packet pick up or anything. So I am guesstimating that this will be race day packet pick up?

Whatever it may be, I will be there.

You racing this weekend? Did you do this race last year?
