In less than 6 weeks I’m turning 50. It is supposed to be traumatic, turning 50, but I’m actually kind of excited about it. It seems cool to me that I’ve lived this long and I get to look back on all that I’ve accomplished. I’m in better shape at (almost) 50 than I was at 40, 30, or even 20. I can run farther and faster than I ever imagined I could.
Being excited about being 50 might have something to do with how I feel about my health and my body right now. If my 40’s taught me anything it is:
- I love my body; it can do amazing things
- If I treat my body like I love it; it will love me back
In fact, there is only one thing I don’t like about turning 50, and that is that I feel it is time to give up “fatnforty” as my twitter and blog name. I tried an experiment to see if I could get the “40” to mean something besides age, but after a few weeks that plan fizzled, and I realize it wasn’t meant to
be. So now I’m officially closing this blog and changing my twitter handle. After much debate I’ve come up with a new name: FitFatRun. I will post re-directs to my new blog for a few weeks, but then will most likely archive this site.
Thank you so much for all who have sent words of encouragement or posted your own inspiring accounts over the past 10 years. I hope you like the change and decide to follow me on my new adventure:
