Fun with 40

I'm 40 today, which means I'm now running in the masters competition. And I'm not too happy about that. The 40-and-older gang is fast, real fast. It'll be harder than ever to even place in my age group now.

I thought instead of waxing poetic about what it means to be 40, I'd do a by the numbers post using 40 in all things blogging, running, and whatever else I could think of.

(By the way, I spent the first part of my day at the Fort Worth Zoo reporting on a story about some new Malayan tiger cubs.)

First 40-mile week: November 2005 training for the 2005 White Rock Lake Marathon.
First race of 40 minutes or more: 10k in Feb. 2005. Finishing time was 50:12
40th (known) visitor: From Keller, Texas. Feb. 19, 2008.
40th comment: From my co-worker, Patrick Walker about my six-word memoir.
40th post: Going to the doctor for foot pain.

Google keywords most often used to find my blog (Wont bore you with 40, but here are a few)
5ks and cabernets
revealing swimwear: From a post I wrote about the swimsuit that helps people set world records.

I know it's a day late, but Happy Birthday! I hope you had a great day. Mine is tomorrow (36).

While you might be less than thrilled with moving up an age group, I am ecstatic, since you're moving out of mine!

I think I'll take credit as that 40th visitor...

Nice article on the tigers. Keep up the good work, and keep up the running--you've got a breakthrough race coming.

Happy Birthday! If it makes you feel better, I'm 38, and my age bracket is absolutely brutal. It's just not natural for dudes in their late 30's to run that fast.

Happy birthday! Hope you celebrated with a great bottle of wine.

I was going to comment that all your keywords are so normal, and pull up some examples of how people find my page by googling "big butts on little kids" or other equally bizarre things, but... I just checked out my keywords and they're all pretty normal now! Did all the wackos stop using the internet?

Belated.... but Happy Birthday to you!!

That list of search phrases is hilarious. "Revealing swimsuit." Ha.
