W35-39


I remember being a teenager and thinking that people in their 20's were so old.
Then in my early 20's, people who were late 20's were so old. 30's? Dinosaurs.

So it's kind of crazy for me to think that I am now 35. I don't feel old. I feel great. I don't think it's going to hit me that I'm old until I have to go scrolling down the page to the 35-39 section of race results to find my own name.

To celebrate, I'm sleeping in. Ahhhh. Then I get to play with my awesome daughter! I'm gonna get Scott to bring home take-out Thai so I don't have to cook. I'm pretty simple in my birthday wishes. ;)

I'll be meeting some friends at the pool (at noon!) to swim 35 x 100's. I have good friends who are willing to endure sets like that for my birthday. Isn't it great to have good friends? I'm a lucky girl. If I can still be called a girl when I'm old.
