I logged onto facebook to write a long note about how I'm disappointed in myself because I'm not running my usual annual 1/2 marathon tomorrow. I've had too much going on lately to train, so to be safe I'm only doing the 10k. Which makes me feel like I have passed my prime. But before I can post, I see is a post from a friend saying how awesome she feels because she is going to do the 10k, and how far it is but she knows she can tough it out, and how this proves she isn't too old for anything. And her friend responds that she is also doing the 10k for the first time, and how hard it is but they are proving that 30 isn't over the hill. I really needed those reminders that what I'm doing is still pretty kickass. I feel a lot better now. And since people nearly 2 decades younger than me are feeling a bit old, I guess I'm in good company!
