40 is the New Cheerleader

Looks like I turned 40 just in time to be cool. I remember thinking how old my parents were when they were my age - but suddenly it is hip to be 40! TV Land is unleashing a reality tv show about people celebrating turning "the F word."

After two months of living in this 40 year old skin, I have found 40 to be great. It has motivated me to actually do things I had put off for years. I feel like I am accomplished, successful in my career and family...and I really don't care what others think about me. I am very comfortable in speaking my mind, but I also have learned that speaking my mind isn't always a good thing.

Downside of 40: in most of the race stats that I have read, women in the 40-45 age range kick ass over women in the 35-40 range. Guess I'm not the only person the birthday has motivated. Darn, I'm going to have to train harder to get a good finish placement!
