Running Into Fifty

Yeah, it's new.

I started blogging back in 2005 as I was approaching my 40th birthday. The blog was called "Falling Into Forty," and it was my way of capturing all that was going on in my head at the time. It was a great experience and I was very happy with my focus at the time.

After I turned 40, though, I struggled. I tried to keep blogging, but my heart wasn't in it. I tried several different new ideas, including "Wasn't Tomorrow Wonderful" and "That Kind of Guy." Ultimately, though, it was all hit and miss.

But I'm a different person now. I have taken control of my life and I'm no longer content to just fall into anything. These days, I can honestly call myself a runner. And thus, Running Into Fifty seems a more take-charge way of rolling on towards the mid-century mark.

So, here we go. It will be everything that is on my mind, from politics (some) to social issues (a bit more) to random life moments and experiences (way more).

Thanks for taking a bit of your time to read my little spot on the web.
