49 here I come!

blackTomorrow I turn 49, it is the day that the panic sets in, one more year until I am 50! I think I had plans to get a bunch of things done before I turned 50, but I can’t remember what they were. I am working on my first and only marathon in July which I will follow with retirement from the world of marathon running in silent obscurity. I’m not really planning anything big for this next year and maybe that is what the panic feelings are all about. Am I supposed to have had plans to change the world by now? Was I planning to be a mega millionaire or fly a plane around the world? None of these sound familiar so I am a little bummed I shot so low on my “by 50” goals. All I really want is to be able to make a difference in this world and be a good father and husband. Well, tomorrow I think I will sit down and make some lofty goals for the next year, but only after I have my cake!
