Another Year Older

Today is the day I greeted the world in 1978. It’s hard to believe that I’ve been around as many years as I have…I definitely don’t feel like my age that’s for sure. How I’m another year older, I don’t know LOL. I was just talking to some of my running group about that during our last run on Saturday. We came to the conclusion that running and exercise keeps you not only fitter, but younger as well.

Another journey around the sun

The last year has been pretty great for me for the most part. I got into my dream race, got into the best shape before marathon training began, and then had a great training season. New York was an amazing experience for me. I didn’t do nearly my best time or performance on race day, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I look back on that day and the days before the race and after while up in New York as one of the best experiences of my life thus far. I already yearn to go back in 2017 and do it all over again. I realize you can’t relive a life’s dream like that, but I do want to run the five boroughs again. And of course, do it better the second time around. 🙂

Four months into 2016, I can’t say I know what this year will bring. There’s still more than half of the year to come, and I have been feeling like it was lacking the great excitement that 2015 had going for it. But, I’m working on remaining positive, you just never know what a day might bring. In fact, just the other day, I heard of a potentially incredible opportunity that might come my way in the next few months. I’m really hopeful it will pan out, as if so, it will be sooo awesome. Sorry I’m cryptic, but I promise to post about it all if things happen!

Act my age

What my 38th year will bring, I have not a clue. The only one that knows is God, and I need to continue to trust in Him to lead me where I need to go. There’s always ups and downs throughout our life, but He will never leave me astray. Here’s to a great next 365 days!
