Are Baby Boomers Cool?

Are Baby Boomers, and even Gen X-ers cool?

Totally!

Way cool!

In 25 days, I have (hopefully) the privilege of turning 50. Seriously,

Of the many blessings and unique things that have happened during those five decades, I have never been an Olympian, nor had a “six-pack”.

Later this summer, I anticipate both becoming reality.

Funny thing though. Neither was a goal I had in mind.

Sure, like some people, I had dreams of these things throughout my lifetime. But never in a million years thought it would come true. And, may I add, I was never longing for, nor hellbent, to accomplish either.

Instead, what did I become passionate about?

Lowering my high cholesterol.

And that is what is leading me to the 2009 Master’s Track & Field World Championships this August.

Feel free to check out this amazing, yet humble, journey to the “old people’s Olympics” at www.Lane8.org .

Our eight-year old son is encouraging me to finish my goal of becoming the slowest of the fastest, out in Lane 8 .

Never let your memories be bigger than your dreams. Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂

Internet's only five-a-day blogger, leaving a trail for our son. This is about putting the spirit of Love at the center of your life. It may be God, Allah, Mohammed, Buddha, Yahweh, etc. For me, it's Jesus.
