Happy Birthday to me!!

Today is my 50th Birthday. I am having a hard time believing it. I have lived over half of my life. Wow. I am thankful for everything in my life, and really have few regrets. I wanted to share a few Birthday quotes before I head out the door to run for the first time at this ripe old age.

Inside every older person is a younger person - wondering what the hell happened. Cora Harvey Armstrong.

Looking fifty is great - if you're sixty. Joan Rivers

The fact is, that to do anything in this world worth doing, we must not stand back shivering and thinking of the cold and danger, but jump in, and scramble as well as we can. Sydney Smith

Here's a birthday quote for you Kelly...

“Well, birthdays are merely symbolic of how another year has gone by and how little we've grown. No matter how desperate we are that someday a better self will emerge, with each flicker of the candles on the cake, we know it's not to be, that for the rest of our sad, wretched pathetic lives, this is who we are to the bitter end. Inevitably, irrevocably; happy birthday? No such thing.”Jerry Seinfeld

OK, well, maybe that's not so uplifiting, how about this instead.

Menachem Mendel Schneerson
Because time itself is like a spiral, something special happens on your birthday each year: The same energy that God invested in you at birth is present once again.


Happy Birthday to you, and have a great 50k this weekend!

If every 50 year old were as healthy and vibrant as you what a wonderfully different world this would be. Happy Birthday!
