The Scary New Age Group
By: Rachel Gibson
that's right, i finally made it--no more screaming and running around in terror, no more laying in the fetal position wallowing in self pity--it's too late for that now.
thirty. i remember growing up thinking "wow, that's old". then in my 20's my thoughts about the dreaded three-oh were "okay, i'm going to accomplish so many goals by 30!". now all i can think when i hear that number is "dang, now i'm in a super fast AG!" haha, it's funny how your perspective changes through life.
so yes, i'm thirty. i don't feel old and i haven't accomplished near as many goals as i thought--but i've had fun these past 30 years and dang if i don't make myself work to keep up with the speedy new age group i've found myself in. look out thirty-something females, i ain't scared!
(okay, maybe i am. a little. they're FAST!)
but the nice little icing on my 29-year-old cake was the 3rd place 25-29 AG win i got from Saturday's WV5k Championship...one more little award on my shelf reminding me that even though i've got my competition cut out for me now, i did accomplish something these past 30 years; i became a runner. and that's something to celebrate!
PS, that 5k, despite the heat, really was a great race. Particularly the pint glass. I'm a sucker for pint glasses.
