Age is only a number

 I celebrated my Birthday last week.  It was a "hard to swallow" Birthday.  53 years old , sounds and looks so OLD.  I hated every minute of turning that horrid number.  I didn't even feel good on that day.  I felt old, ugly and used up.  But, today, almost one week later, I am feeling good and moving on with my 53 year old bad self.  Enough said!! Matt surprised me with a Greg LeMond spin cycle that is big and beautiful.  It is displayed in our living room (for now anyway), and it is as quiet as a mouse.  Now I can watch all my reality shows and get in shape at the same time.  I am really excited. 

 I was also given the okay to start running again.  My Doc gave me his blessing and then said, "but you can not fall!"  Duh....who goes out running and plans a fall?  Come on, Doctor K!  If I had any control over the subject, I would never, ever ,chose to fall! 

I have power hiked until the cows have come home and I still am sucking wind at every hill.  I guess I have a lot of running to do before I am feeling fit again.  Hopefully the spin bike will help me achieve my fitness goals. 

I don't think I have really ever talked about my dog, Jada.  I feel like a first time parent these days.  Everything is about Jada.  I go to the dog park, I take her on runs, long hikes, I kiss her a hundred times a day and I talk baby talk to her.  I think I've lost my mind.  Maybe its time to go back to work.....

It is good to have an end to journey towards; but it is the journey that matters in the end.  Ursula K. LeGuin
