Tomorrow I turn 45 years old. Yup, 45. It sounds a lot older than 44, doesn't it? To me it does.
As the day approaches, I've been trying to come up with some grand way to make the transition from 44 to 45. Here are some ideas:
1. Run 20 miles today, 25 tomorrow for a total of 45
2. Get on the trail at 5:27 a.m. and run for 5 hours and 27 minutes
3. Run 20 miles, bike 25 miles
4. Run 45 minutes (too easy)
5. Run 5.27 miles (not grand)
6. Run 4.5 miles (not grand either)
7. Run 4.5 hours
8. Sleep in and do absolutely nothing
Obviously option #1 is not going to happen because I hiked five miles with my daughter this morning. I probably won't be running 20 or 25 miles tomorrow, due to my little incident involving my ankle. I will choose something though and have no doubt, I will make it GRAND!
Other than the running portion of tomorrow, I have a Giants game to attend with some family members. I can't decide if I want to go to a restaurant first or just eat ballpark food. We all know I love my ballpark food! And it has been brought to my attention that even if we do eat at a restaurant first, there are certain things I cannot ignore when I go to a Giants game (i.e. caramel corn, licorice whips, the newly discovered "elephant ears" with strawberries and whipped cream, peanuts, ice cream, etc.) Oh, and I want to go to IHOP and eat anything strawberry. They've been advertising a lot lately about strawberry pancakes, waffles, french toast, etc. I LOVE strawberries.
Perhaps I should choose an option that burns a lot of calories tomorrow, what do you think?
Until later, when I'm older.............
