Another milestone reached.....
Well, this morning at 10:36 CDT, I will be 40 years old. Man, where did all those years go and how come they seem to have passed so darn quickly?
I don't feel like I have been around for 40 years. Maybe 20....but not 40. Oddly enough, I am in better shape now than I have been since I was in my early 20's. And I do feel great physically but it just seems so unreal that I am 40 years old.
I don't think it will change anything. I'm still going to keep riding my bicycle about 175 to 200 miles a week (as soon as spring gets here, during the winter I am transitioning back to the Nordic Track) and lifting weights.
Still going to be the best father I can be to my kids and the best husband I can be to my lovely wife. And I will keep carrying to protect them.
Things will continue as normal for me. After all, it's just a number and age is a state of mind more than anything.
Maybe someone will buy me a gun for my birthday. I can wish right?
