Who wants to be a spring chicken anyway?

It amazes me how creaky my body sometimes feels when I wake in the morning. Come on, body! You just got many hours of sleep! You should be raring to go!

Ha, the logical part of my brain knows that some of my muscles tense up at night and need to be stretched out to feel good. And another logical part of me knows that as I get older, that feeling is probably only going to get worse.

You know, unless I take care of myself, like by stretching every day…

At least I do a good job with a monthly massage!

Wouldn’t it be amazing to be a sponsored elite athlete and get a massage every day? And have someone cook for you? And take naps every day? And only have to focus on running and not work…? Ha ha ha – I got a bit off track there.

    Glad it isn’t just me! If I won the lottery the first thing i would do is get a massage every day!

      Wouldn’t that be amazing?! And if you (or me, ha) won the lottery, you could pay someone to do other chores and tasks so you could have more time for yoga, exercising, and napping.

    Massages every day. a PT at your beck and call that would be amazing.

  3. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve wished I could have the life of an elite athlete…at least until I remember all the other things they have to do, like run really hard and run a billion miles each week and win enough to maintain their sponsorships. But the other stuff? No desk work obligations and an army of people to take care of you? That I could handle 😉

      Ha ha ha, I was thinking the same thing – I’d like all the perks. And, well, if I had a body that could do all that, that would be awesome too… but how about the perks?!
