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.

What Are You Doing Saturday?

So, peeps, what are you doing this Saturday? I know that there is a lot going on this weekend. Trust me. I am going to be hella busy from the time I finish this post full on until Sunday!

But Boise area peeps, I need your help!

Since I am a member of Team Beef Idaho, there is a big Team Beef race on Saturday called Race For The Steaks. I know, I know. It is the Day Before the City of Trees marathon which is a super big deal, but trust me, I understand all about that. But Saturday's race is an evening race and there will be a tri-tip steak dinner after!

Saturday, I am going to do the 5K at Race For the Steaks and Sunday, the Half at City of Trees. Neither race is going to be a PR or really that fast. I know I am going to be hurting come the finish of COT. But I am looking forward to this weekend of running!

  1. Sorry, I'm already signed up. I'm doing the 15K. If I see you, I'll say hello.

    Side story, I actually received a free entry from Team Beef of Idaho (much appreciated). From your suggestion back in January, I believe, I signed up to be part of the team. Unfortunately it was full so they put me on the wait list. They reached out to the 5 or so of us on the wait list with a complimentary entry. Totally awesome of them. And thanks to you too for the information about Team Beef of Idaho.
