Next fall, I turn the big 4-0, and I'm looking to do something special in the physical realm. What that will be I haven't figured out yet. I know it is cliche to do this, but I want to do something to mark the year.
So, what to do? Run a marathon? I did that years ago, and it wasn't that fun. Get in perfect shape? Maybe, but it's all a bit superficial. I'd like to do something more functional.
One thing I've been looking at is masters track. Maybe I could do a shorter race like the 100-meter dash. (At least if you don't win, it's over quick.) Does anyone run these races barefoot?
Other than that, I'm still on the lookout for other ideas and challenges.
