January 2014
I am a year and a half away from 50. Turning 40 felt like entering middle age which did not go over well with me (I know, should have been grateful....). Heading toward 50 feels very different - now with 8+ more years of emotional growth under my belt, it feels like it can be a fresh start, not a downhill slide. I can and will (God willing) reach my highest peak yet in the realms of physical, emotional and spiritual well being by 50 - June 22, 2015.

Sorry it took me so long to reply to your comment on my page. My fiancée tore his quad above his knee and/or his patella tendon. My C25K took the hit this week! I agree with you that it is pretty aggressive, but I think it helps just getting the mind set down. I have a friend that jogs for 30 seconds, walks for 30 seconds and she said she and her daughter were passing up the runners at a race because they started too fast and couldn't recover. No matter how we do it, we are still runners, and I'm going to enjoy the journey no matter how long it takes me to get there. I was never a runner either, but it does help me to lose weight more quickly....so back to it I go!!! Hope you had a great week!
