september wild flower

so september 12 was my birthday - i turned 53.  what does 53 feel like?  i can't say.  i feel good, i'm moving, i'm having fun, that's all that matters.  it's just a number. someone said to me, 'you have the body of a 20 year old.'  hmmmm, i see a lot of 20 year olds at the gym, and i beg to differ!   they look like shit!  so i'm going to say, 'i have the body of a 53 year old who works her fucking ass off'  -  i like the sound of that much better!!!

i was like a child on christmas morning when it came to facebook!  all day the little notification blip kept going off - over a hundred people wished me a happy birthday.  holy krap!   i especially liked this one from my old university buddy 'brownie' ...

i blew off coach D's prescribed 'tempo repeats' and instead went for a fun romp through the forest!  now that was a great birthday gift!

i see my friends at crossfit as my 'family', so i invited a bunch of them out after friday night club.  even thomas made it back from guelph!!!!!

good gawd - our poor waitress took 4 shots and this was the clearest, but you can kinda see who made it out!!! 

then saturday, after much procrastination, i laced up the hokas and headed out onto the trail - my gift to myself!

it was a gorgeous day ...


over 2 hours of trail bliss. and to steal this from a buddy - 'september wild flower' - i kinda like it ...

not one of my more adventurous birthdays, but still spent it doing what i love.  and that's fine with me.  big big thanks to all those who took the time to send me wishes - i am so lucky ...


  1. That pic looks like the smirk of someone who indeed did just blow off their prescribed interval workout.

  2. Hope you had a great birthday!

    I loved the line about the 20 year olds!

  3. thanks sara! and it's sad but true ...
