Are Baby Boomers, and even Gen X-ers 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.

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 🙂
