It's My Birthday!

Happy birthday to me!  I cannot believe I am 43.  That always sounded old.  Apparently, it isn't, because I am not old!  I feel younger than I did in my 20s.  I am in better shape.  I am happier than ever.  If this were old, I would take it.  Moot point as I am not old.

Today has not been quite the clebration of last year when I ran 42k for my 42nd birthday.  That was pretty amazing, but today has been great in it's own way.  I was up at 7 for a massage then ran an easy 8 miles with my four pawed running partner.  Then there was lunch out with my hubby and a walk downtown.  We visited VooDoo Donuts and had a voodoo doll donut.  Mmmmm!  From there I stopped to see my running coach to talk about the marathon on Sunday--after all, it is all I think about right now... 

Now just chillin' out my boys--Monday night football on the tube, a good book next to me and my computer.  Life is truly GREAT!

Happy Birthday, J!!! I Love that donut. :) MMMMMMM, Never been to VooDoo, but it's calling my name.

What a transformation you must have made with running! :)

Happy happy birthday to you for yesterday! =)
I know what you mean about feeling in better shape now than when you were in your 20s. I keep wondering why I waited so long to get healthy.
YAY for massages and doughnuts!
OH my GOSH I've just checked out the voodoo website! They have one called The Loop!!! =D Though that maple bacon one looks sooo good, and the Portland cream. Oh my...some of them are terribly rude aren't they? =P
