My Next 30 Years

Life moves me into a new age bracket today.  And as a runner, that’s always a big deal.

As the youngest, I should be the freshest and most resilient.  But if there’s one thing I’ve learned in recent years, the wisdom of age is a definite advantage (and the fact I will now share an age group with my friend Jen Theisen is a definite disadvantage!).

And so I welcome what’s ahead, with wide open arms, to all that God would have for me.

From country singer Tim McGraw

I think I’ll take a moment, celebrate my age
The ending of an era and the turning of a page
Now it’s time to focus in on where I go from here
Lord have mercy on my next thirty years

Hey my next thirty years I’m gonna have some fun
Try to forget about all the crazy things I’ve done
Maybe now I’ve conquered all my adolescent fears
And I’ll do it better in my next thirty years

My next thirty years I’m gonna settle all the scores
Cry a little less, laugh a little more
Find a world of happiness without the hate and fear
Figure out just what I’m doing here
In my next thirty years

Oh my next thirty years, I’m gonna watch my weight
Eat a few more salads and not stay up so late
Drink a little lemonade and not so many beers
Maybe I’ll remember my next thirty years

My next thirty years will be the best years of my life
Raise a little family and hang out with my wife
Spend precious moments with the ones that I hold dear
Make up for lost time here , In my next thirty years

  1. I don’t believe you about the lemonade part…I saw you drink a beer already today 🙂 Happy Birthday, you old fart. (I can only say that for a couple more months so I will take advantage of it 🙂 Nice blog by the way!
