We're Not Old

Since I am at Atlanta and ran the Peachtree 10K this morning, I thought it only appropriate to do a reflection. Tonight at supper my husband said to me, "We are NOT old!" That got me thinking of a poem. Here it is:

We're NOT Old!
by Kathy Douglas
Run the Peachtree 10K
We're not getting old!
Walk back two miles to MARTA
We're not getting old!
Walk from the Varsity: 2 miles
We're not getting old!
Hey, Sarah, look
No flabby arms!
We're NOT getting old!
Tomorrow I will post another poem all about the Peachtree Race. Atlanta is not as hot as usual and we are having a great time.

Wow, I am so honored to have my name in one of your poems!
You are only as old as you feel. That is what my mother says, probably tomorrow the day after the Peachtree you may not want to say this statement. I am so proud of you and your accomplishment. I have always wanted to be in a marathon. Perhaps I will set that goal for next summer. Have fun in Atlanta!!!!!
