Milestone birthday today
I used my "milestone" birthday (I'll let you guess which one) to run my first race in nearly 20 years. This living in the mountains thing is paying off. Though I'm running about 1/3 of the miles I did 20 years ago, I ran about as fast and managed to come in 4th in the race. It was a hilly course and I realized I haven't been running down hills much of late -- it uses different muscles to say the least! I have to admit it got my competitive juices flowing. Most (all?) of those competitive juices have been directed towards brain (i.e., work) rather than physical activities the last 20 years. I think I'm going have to balance them out.
