« The F-Word We Don't Talk About in Adoption | Main | The Memory of Loss »

January 06, 2010



you go girl... i had the same feelings about 40 and even in my 20s used to say, "I know my 40s are going to be the best years of my life". i was right. and i LOVED- absolutely truly loved- turning 40. i didn't do an iron man (!)- but did finish my first 15K :O)

Smiley Always!

I thought I was the only one obsessed with turning 40! I am 38 and also looking to get into shape and really make sure that on that day I am in the best shape of my adult life. I am way behind you in progress, I have never run more than a few miles on the treadmill, but we just joined the Y and I am ready to rock and roll. I had to say congrats to you and thinking of you!

Signed, Another adoptee who is also loving the idea of being 40!


Way to go, Paula! That's an incredible goal! I have nothing for advice, as I'm trying to convince myself to actually *go* to the gym I just joined (it only took seven weeks for me to join a new gym after we moved here)! I'm the epitome of a dumpy mom these days and my big goal is simply to lose the last of the weight I gained over the past two years (ten more pounds to go...lack of sleep, intense stress, and illness did me NO favors!) and get back into minimally decent shape. And preferable before my birthday, which is in less than three months. Lofty, huh?

I'm looking forward to hearing about your training and progress. I love your attitude and positivity. Best of luck with it and keep us updated.

BTW, I love your adoption posts and look forward to them immensely. However, I'm also excited to hear from you on non-adoption related topics! Post away!


I'm a Stroller Strides instructor. About 4 years ago Iron Girl launched an event in my sprint distance tri. Stroller Strides was one of the sponsors. My boss (the local SS owner) wanted SS to be represented in the tri and convinced me and another instructor to train with her. I thought I had lost my mind. Athlete I was never...just took dance classes at a local rec council. But she got us addicted. I'm heading into my 4th season of sprint tris. I must admit I mostly hibernate during the frozen months, but come the end of march, I'll dust off my bike, swim cap, and running shoes and get moving for another season. who would've thunk?

InMySeoul only 29 and I feel like my body is going to break in half! I wake up in the morning and my back feels like its already 40! lol.
