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…

I Was Going To Register For A Race...

The other half and I received race entry codes for Boise's FitOne Race the last weekend of September. September 24th.
 
I registered for said race and thought that's cool. A race I have not yet done in Boise.

Then I looked at my calendar.

You know, I REALLY SHOULD have looked at the calendar before getting the itchy race registration finger.


I am going on a CRUISE the next day. So I won't even BE in Idaho. Silly me.

September is gonna be a very busy month for me and its such a good month for racing. The first week of September I'll be peddling wine at the fair. 12 hour days for a week. It was fun last year but I couldn't do anything else. I was 100% dedicated to my booth.

Wineing!
The week after that will be dealing with the fair after effects. Calling back leads and whatnot.

The week after that will hopefully be some travel down to Cali to go on my cruise. It's my first cruise and I am pretty excited. I'm so excited that I'm already planning on booking my next cruises when I have not even gone on one yet.

I KNOW I am going to be seasick but it is OK. I already got my SeaBands and will be taking lots of ginger with me in my bag.

So, looks like back to the drawing board for more race registrations.

I have the one above I am looking forward to doing. I placed last year. I don't think I will be placing this year.


Anyone interested in running in the Boise FitOne races? If so, let me know! We can work something out. I have a code that was given to the other half and its good for any distance. And since he is going with me on my cruise he can't run it either! $10 and the code is yours!

Have you ever accidentally registered for a race that was on the wrong weekend? Any races planned soon?
