I manage a country homestead and the lives of my 4 babies ages 10,8,5 and 3. I LOVE TO RUN and NEED to keep healthy and fit for my SANITY!! Seriously....All problems are solved when I am running.

Making MY health a priority allows me to be the mother and wife that I need to be for them.

The Big 30

I turn 30 in 5 days.

I am running 3 times this week for stress relief and once on my birthday to remind myself that I am only as old as I allow myself to be.

I have to say...I am fitter than I was in high school. More tired yes, but alot more fit. I am also more self confident,self assured, and all around comfortable with the person I am. I no longer care what other people think of my looks, except for my husband. I am o.k with wearing whatever I feel beautiful in even if it is not in-style, and I love myself enough to take care of my body,mind,and soul. I know there is a God and know that I can find peace and hapiness only with him in my life. I am o.k knowing that I don't know it all, and know that character building comes with experience.

If that is what 30 years of age,grey hair and fine lines comes with, then I think I am o.k with it all.

I couldn't agree more (although I'm not as secure as you are about what other people think). I'll be 32 a week after you turn 30 and I've never felt like I've known and loved myself more. If only I could go back and talk to my 20 year old self :)

In 5 days? So your b-day is Nov. 9? So is my husband! (But, sorry...he's two years younger.) :)
Keep up the running, and yippee to being fitter and more self-confident now...exactly the same boat I'm in!
