getting older--getting better

Sunday, April 04, 2010

I have been slipping just a bit on spark people, but I am still exercising and watching what I eat. I just had a birthday and turned 47. I can't pull the gray
hairs out anymore or I would be bald.
I think in some ways I am healthier now than I was 15 years ago. My body doesn't have the yo yo of having a baby every three years and I feel like I am more relaxed. I feel more confident in my job and don't worry about making impressions as much.
I am having some back issues, but I seem to be able to work through them and a few more aches and pains. I think though over all I am getting better at being healthy as I get older.
My 10 year old son and I ran in the Golden West Credit Union 5 K. It was so fun to see the grandparents and the parents teaching their children how to keep running and not give up. To push it!! What great character they are instilling in their children.

My son was very pleased with his time and I beat my time by about 30 seconds.--So while I am getting older-I am getting better!! hAPPY eASTER emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I know how it is on getting older. Those little bottles of hair color really come in handy now!! ;)

    Glad you and your son had a good run at the GWCU 5K. It is amazing to see all the people encouraging everyone on in the race. And good job on your time!!

    I was planning to run the race and had unexpected company of my daughter, SIL and their 2 kids, plus my other granddaughter, whose Mom went for a girls weekend away. Even when the kids leave the house, they always come back!!
