One of the aspects of being a triathlete is that you "age up" on January 1. Once the calendar turns you become whatever age you will be on 12/31 of that year. So for 10 + months I have been 50 in triathlon years that is. The first time I had to answer the "how old are you?" was in March at my first race this year. I did gulp a bit and say 50. I have had 50 scrawled on my calf 6 times before my birthday. So the actual day did not change much, other then well I am 50.
I decided that 50 is really halfway to 100. You may laugh but my Grandmother lived to 99 and my Aunt is currently 99, so it is within my family genes for sure. Time will tell.....

Onto 51 and still feeling more like I am 40.
