Yesterday was my 40th birthday. Actually I welcomed it, and as predicted, 40 feels the same as the year before. I did tell my students and my own children that now I'm officially "old."
So my goal was to run 4 marathons before I turned 40. I finished the 4th last fall. Now I need a new exercise goal--because I don't find exercise convenient for me. I rarely "crave" exercise. I was looking out at the sleet (supposedly preceding a snow storm). Maybe I could make my goal to complete 40 miles each month I'm 40. The breakdown is ten miles a week. That seems reasonable, right? Perhaps since the weather is bad I can start . . . next month?
