Today is my 47th birthday. In 1095 days I turn 50. And I have been counting down for almost a year because I believe, as we enter a new era, there is no reason why 50 can’t be the new (and improved) 25. We know more about the human body than ever and technology is evolving at rapidly as ever. For me, I’m pretty certain that I’ll live until close to 150, so that means 50 is only about 1/3 of my life.
So I decided set a goal for myself to be fitter at 50 then at any other time in my life.
In order to celebrate my 50th, in 1095 days from now, I’m planning to embark on a pretty gnarly adventure. I’m not ready to share what that is just yet but I will say it’s much bigger than anything I’ve attempted to date…and I am freakin pumped. And from what I can tell so far, having been researching for almost a year, no one else has ever attempted it either.
And so today, 1095 days out from my 50th birthday I decided to start to blog about it so I can document my journey. Along the way I may post thoughts on how the journey to 50 is going or things I’ve written previously that I want to reshare or just share my thoughts for the day. And it’ll vary between family, business and the lead up to my 50th birthday adventure.
So if you want to follow my journey over the next 3 years, you can follow me on Strava, Twitter and of course on this blog (I keep my Facebook and IG private just for family and very close friends).
I hope you enjoy and I encourage you to comment, write me personally at firstname.lastname@example.org and share with anyone else you think may enjoy following my journey.
Until next time….
