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 🙂
