300m shuttle run for timeThis coming weekend I will turn 37 years old. A few month back I wrote about this pending event on my personal blog. In some ways I feel 37 and in some ways I don’t. Though, really, I’m not sure what it means to “feel 37.” I feel I’ve figured some things out. I feel there’s much more to go. I feel I have more undiscovered athletic accomplishments in me, but I feel my joints more as well. I feel when my mother, who is 60, says to me, “It just gets better every year,” I should believe her.

Most of all, I feel I am as young or as old as the people around me, not just in body, but in spirit. Being surrounded by people who intend to grow, who strive for development, who put themselves in front of challenge – that is where my “feeling” about life comes from. I believe most of us at CFLA don’t “look our age” and I know we don’t act it. I think when we come together we make each other younger.

But when I think about it…maybe younger is not the right word. I don’t feel younger; I feel alive-er. I think the power of CFLA is that we bring the life out of each other.
