File this under things I’d never thought I’d say

I’m as old as Plinko!

That’s right! Plinko is also 30.

Actually what I was going to say is 30 isn’t so bad! But now that I know I’m as old as plinko I am re-thinking this 30 thing.

For a while now I’ve been dreading turning an age that starts with 3, moving up an age group for running and just getting older in general.

No idea how old I am here. Possibly 3-4

Maybe I had too much fun in my 20s and wasn’t ready to let that go.

But for 30 days before my birthday, my family did 30 days of 30. Basically you get a small gift everyday for 30 days. Some days it was a box of baking mix, other days chapsticks, candles, candy or odd gems that just made you laugh. Every day it was a reminder that I was getting closer and closer to 30.

Just a few 30 days of 30 gifts. Kinder chocolates was a favorite!

Then my husband threw me a kick ass party last weekend and I realized how awesome my friends and family are. Yesterday I celebrated with some speed work at the track and a great taco Tuesday with friends. Then my husband spoiled me with presents, beer, Dunkin Donuts gift card and a jawbone!

This whole 30 thing isn’t too bad so far.

Can I turn 30 every year now?

  1. I love this! brithdays are just that…birthdays…and age…well that is just a number! I love that your family came up with a unique way to celebrate you and your day of birth! I love parties, especially when a loved one organizes it. Embrace the fact that you had a successful 20’s look where you are now! I’ll keep this in mind for friends birthdays πŸ™‚ Happy Birthday to you!

  2. Happy 30th!! The 30’s are definitely the best πŸ™‚ I too am from the Cleveland area (actually about 45 mins east). I just began running (and blogging more about it…lol), and can’t wait till my next race- The Cleveland Turkey Trot!
