Last week I celebrated my 42nd Birthday. Some women and men for that matter fear aging. Not me. I can sit back and feel great about being this age. I look at it this way; I am wiser than I was at 24, I am stronger emotionally than I was at 24, I am healthier than I was at 24, and I am much more physically fit than I was at 24.
On the actual day of my birthday I went out and decided to do a celebratory run; .1 miles for each year. I only had an hour for lunch, so I would not have been able to do something epic. I did have an epic idea, but I lacked the time to complete it; 42 min swim, 42 mile bike ride, 4.2 mile run.
I settled for the 4.2 mile run.
I ended up cruising through an industrial area near work, and had a turn-around point already mapped. As usual I detoured. I ended up running over the Arapaho Rd bridge, which was pretty cool if you ask me!
I ended up going a little bit further than I intended, but crossing that bridge made it worth the extra steps!
Distance 4.32 mi, Duration 49:18, Pace 11:41 min/mile, Speed 5.26 mph.
