My friends ran the half for me...

On my birthday.  How's that for friendship? :0)   They are actually training to possibly run the full marathon up in Vancouver on May 2nd.  It's not a distance I ever imagine myself contemplating, but maybe once you run the half a few times you start to think you might be able to do it. 

My birthday extended all the way through out last weekend and I had a blast.  The sun was shining - which always makes me happy, and I got to spend it with good friends, which also always makes me happy.  It was a birthday I hope everyone can experience in their lifetime.  Whooohoooo I'm 50!  Age is just a number and you can feel old at 25 and someone else feels young at 70.  Me...I would rather feel young at 70 or even 80.  I'll let you know how it goes. :0)

  1. Yesterday, a woman I was talking to told me that she had finally decided to own up to her age -- she was 80! I think we should all own up to our ages (although I also respect a work colleagues decision to a) never ask a woman her age, and b) never to ask a woman if she is pregnant! Smart man).
    Congrats on your birthday and the vicarious half marathon. I am ready for the winter to go away.....I want to be worrying about shredding grass....
