Got through it.

I got though "that" day, the day I was ignoring and hoping would go away!!
I went bike riding since I can't run.  I never imagined that on my 12th 39th birthday that I wouldn't be able to go running.  The next two years my birthday will be on Saturday and Sunday so I better be able to run!! 
Can't run so I bike
I saw my neighbor out in her yard so I asked her to take a picture of me.  I have to say that I did feel much better and inspired after talking with her.  I've known her for years, we met when our kids were young.  I never realized that she is older than me.  She always looked so young.  She told me that she will be 58 in a couple of months.  I was quite shocked; she looks so young.

So, I made it through!  Now I'm back to the life of the world's oldest college student!

If I ignore it, maybe it will go away

If I ignore today, maybe it will go away!! 
I have no life, I have homework, I can't run, I have plantar fasciitis, I've gained 10 lbs in school, and I'm supposed to be happy today???? 
If anyone, and I don't care who it is, if anyone dares to say those 3 stupid words that people like to say to people on this certain occasion, I will tell them to SHUT UP!!!! 
I suppose I will get used to it, but right now I'm just not liking it one little bit. 
I'm in a new age group for races and I'm also in a new cateory - grandmasters.  oh yippie!

I had to settle for biking today since I'm taking time off running right now.  I will just keep my mind on Key West!
