Two weeks ago I turned 40. Usually, I get depressed around my birthdays, but I'm 40, and my knees and back actually feel pretty decent. I'm running 12 miles on my long runs, and while I'm not moving too fast, I am still moving.
So, I'm thinking its January, I'm already doing 12 miles, and it feels decent. Maybe its time to step up and see if I can actually do a Marathon...like in May or June. What better way to celebrate turning 40?
I'm going to sleep on it. Actually I'm going to see how the next couple of runs go. I'm stretching to 13, 14 miles over the next couple of weeks, and if those feel decent, I'll start to work in some speed.
