Trewest Turns Thirty


Trewest

Recommended Posts

Life got a little too real this week. My dad had a heart attack on Monday. A small one, and he is fine. Now has two shunts in his arteries and can't eat anything that walks on 4 legs again for the rest of his life. But he's fine.

 

I dislike getting sudden reminders of my parents' inevitable mortality.

 

Thus I will distract my self with shiny objects, mud, and physical exhaustion.

 

On July 24th I turn 30.

 

So my theme from now until then is going to be on getting ready for the Foam Fest 5 K I am running on the 23rd with: Hubby, Best friend, Eldest Brother, Middle Brother (maybe, he hasn't confirmed yet), and Brother-in-Law.

And there won't be actual running either :P Well maybe the pack of Brothers will run but Best Friend and Hubby have both done 0 in the way of training for this, and they aren't running it so I will shamelessly meander with them. That and I SUSPECT that I will have obligatory birthday shots...just not sure if that'll be pre or post Foam Fest because that's up to Hubby.

I was slightly suspicious about you being willing to meander, rather than gunning for lead... until the birthday shots came into it. Sounds like it'll be an adventure!

 

Let me put it this way:

 

One year my friends called my boss and told him I wouldn't be into work the day of my birthday or the day after because I had been kidnapped by liquor fairies. Now I don't drink anywhere near as much as I did back then, but yeah. I suspect that I will be handed a mimosa as soon as I wake up and the day will progress from there.

Man I am sorry to hear about your dad, but yay for it turning out well (though no more meat is a bit sad). Huzzah for the big 30! I just hit it on the 16th of last month and I feel... Zero difference. Meander away with the run as needed or show them boys up! Following along :D

Thirty is the new twenty, or something like that. Me, I'm cruising quickly toward 40 (I turn 36 this week, BLARG). Awesome that you have such a showing at that 5k!

LOL! I suspect I will feel 0 difference as well. Chances are I'll make all of 'em carry me across the finish line like a Queen regardless of whether they were running or not!

My brother in law turns 40 next year and he occasionally grumbles at me about him feeling old and whatnot :P

35 was the magic "shit I'm not young anymore" age for me... That was largely due to getting undiagnosed mono which was like 6 months of DOMS with no actual fitness activities involved, followed by a year of debilitating fatigue, but it wasn't the only thing. My parents retired and moved to Florida (like OLD PEOPLE!). I could no longer stay lean while eating whatever the hell I wanted. I developed a chronically bad ankle. Epic balding. Etc.

Well I've had a bum knee since I was 13. I tore ligaments in my ankle at 17. I'm an insomniac so fatigue is a constant in my life. Basically I've felt OLD since I was little so I'll just keep doing what I want to do and I'll duct tape whatever part of me falls off first back where it belongs :P

Iiiiiiiii have had hip surgery. 4 times. Lol. And bad knees, three injured and busted discs in my back, a trick ankle, and... Wait wtf are we doing here comparing our degree of geriatrics?!? People we are young as hell still! Trewest. Duct tape. Between you and Jonesy I think I have found more "me's" on here xD. I'm all for the old mantra of duct tape and WD40. If it moves and shouldn't: duct tape. If it doesn't move and should: WD40 (or coconut oil or Pam apparently). You guys. Get off my lawn with that noise!

If we're going to be cracking old age jokes I definitely need to get @Sam Ashen and @mr_willes on this thread for their experience in the field :P

Old age jokes?

 

Actually I have a quite sturdy frame. Apparently they can measure "a" part of this on bone density. First time I got off an analyzer they asked me if I had ever broken something, and I haven't. The only weak part about me is my ankle, but since doing more running with the right shoes those are actually quite fine. And a shoulder which I fucked up swinging a baseball bat with completely bad technique.

 

My elbow now is just bad luck. A combination of being allergic to "some" mosquitos and because of that an inflammation of my bursa.

 

And I'm way too young for old fart jokes. In a few days we will only be 5 years apart :P

30 is great. Everything stops being so life-critical (you must have a career, you must know what you want, you must have family, and breed, you must *etc*). I feel like the 20s are the time when everyone tries to impress their own ideas about life upon your own. The 30s are when that stops and you finally have space to figure out whatever YOU want. And pressure to perform a certain way in life goes way down, or your ability to tell people off/ignore them goes up, not sure which, haha. I honestly have enjoyed 30 this year, and look forward to more!

only 5 years older is still OLDER :P Imma crack all the old age jokes I can get away with. My best friend already knows to anticipate heckling and she's only a couple of months older than me :P

I'm officially at that age bracket where I look at the eager young people entering their twenties with all of these PLANS and I wince because I know now how fast those plans get torn apart, but I also look at people only slightly older than me that seem to have their lives all together and I am left wondering HOW THE FRICK-FRACK-PATTY-WHACK have you figured out how to adult?

Why does she sound saddened by having a menagerie of parrots? That sounds awesome. Noisy, but awesome. Hell, I'm still lousy with good health and I already occasionally catch my cats checking to see if I'm still breathing or if they can eat me yet. At least with parrots you don't have to worry about becoming an immediate part of the cycle of life.

I turned 30 recently. My degree of NotGiveAShit has been hailed far and wide. (OK, pretty much only to my BF's boss, whose wife is about to turn and is a little freaked out. The boss herself also did NotGiveAShit, so she has fun tormenting the wife.)

 

A few years ago, at a party, one girl was hanging out with me in my bathroom (just go with it), and she went on this whole thing of being afraid to turn 30. I asked how old she was, since she was a friend of a friend of a friend.

 

Twenty two. 22.

 

I laughed and laughed.

 

Oh, um, hello, and happy early birthday.

Oh the cat thing is extra creepy. I'll nap on my couch and then get this weird sensation that something is hovering right over my face. So I'll wake up and see my cat's face RIGHT next to mine. Using her whiskers to detect if I'm still breathing. Oh yeah. My cute little cat is definitely going to eat my face first if I die at home. The bigger guy couldn't be bothered to check.

At work I get one of two responses: 1- people already older than 30 tend to say 'oh I remember being so worked up about it but it's really no big deal' 2- people under 25 that say 'Oh man I still have so long to go until 30, I can't even figure out how to be 2X years old.'

 

As for mud running next year I am still totally in for figuring out when/where/lets go :P
