Let me talk about feet!! 

 Many years ago, my friend H was a runner.  Sometimes I would join her on a run around Kennesaw Mountain and when we would get ready together, I noticed that she always put vaseline on her feet before we took off.  I asked her why and she said she did it to lubricate her feet to cut down on the friction that causes blisters.   My friend J uses Aquaphor.  I do not put anything on before a run (though the more I read about the benefits, I should) but after a run there is nothing more healing than  Raw African Shea Butter and a pair of chenille socks (and my Lucygirl).

I find this speeds up the healing process for my sore feet and when I wake up the next day my feet feel refreshed.  Alot can be said about happy feet and iced knees when you are a middle-aged runner wannabe.

I do not fear getting older, HOWEVER, I am shocked when I see photos of my 40something year old self. I sometimes don't know what to do with all of this. How to merge the young girl I was with the old bag I am now???? What do you get? A hot mess is what you get. Maybe that is what a mid-life crisis is, trying to merge the old with the now.....
