December has come and gone and with it my 30's. Do I miss them? Not really. But this adventure of being a 40-something is taking me a bit to get used to. I didn't have the huge party. My office wasn't covered in over-the-hill-black. I slipped quietly from my 30's to my 40's with some close friends and family sending me cards, emails and text messages (and a killer version of the birthday song by a few that will remain nameless) and I wouldn't have wanted it any other way.
I've started the New Year by not only being 40, but by setting a goal to be in the best condition that I've been in my life. I want to be not only around when I'm 80, but able to enjoy life then too. In 10 months I'll be running in my first complete marathon and I must admit, I can't wait! I plan on spending my 2009 being fit and 40!
