The Big 5-0

Today I, to use Tamar's words, "reached the top of the hill" (she's just a couple of days behind herself). Although I may look my age (I was considered to be the poster boy for the "this is what 40 looks like" birthday party at DevCon in Orlando ten years ago), I certainly don't feel it. I think I'm in better shape than I've been in 20 years.

Well, except I notice that injuries take a lot longer to heal. I actually had physiotherapy today for the first time in my life to help with my injured shoulder. And although I love snowboarding with my son, I definitely feel it the next day. And those darned kids with their loud music. I have to go chase some of them off my lawn.

As I said in a private email this morning, 50 is the new 30.

Happy half-century!
