    I turned 30 today

    I've been in sort of a sour mood all day and I'm guessing the reason is I turned 30 today. How the hell did that happen? It seems like just yesterday I was graduating high school!

    Happy Birthday! from a 42 y.o. If it's any help, my thirties were better than any decade that had preceeded them and I'm trying hard to make that even more true for my fourties!

    Happy B-day! Yea I understand how you feel I am 27 and the last 7 years seem like a blur. To make matters worse I have a 7 year old daughter and since she was 5 (I was 25) she has called me old man. That really made me feel old!!

    Thanks for the b-day wishes everyone! It was a pretty boring one. My bike's been in the shop all week so I couldn't even go for a ride! I did manage to hike Mt. Si yesterday though. I think my 30's are going to be way better than my 20's. I was never good at being a kid anyway. I've already got some grand plans for this year too! I'm riding a double metric century next month, STP (200 miles in 2 days) in July, climbing (on foot) Mt. St. Helens in July, Mt. Adams in August (2 day trek with some glacier climbing on day 2!), my first triathlon in August and all the bike riding I can handle in between all that! If only I could finally meet that Swedish supermodel that is into all the same stuff as me and fall madly in love, life would be grand!!!

    Get crackin' Pete.

    Btw, for every single supermodel out there, there's a dude who's 100% sick of her ***. Just saying. There's a lid for every pot - find your lid.

    Punk.



    Seriously... these should be the best years of your life save for now knowing what to do with what you had at 18.

    One of god's cruel jokes but cycling helps with that.

    When you find it, it will be in the strangest places i meet my partner on the train at 5am in the morning on the train to the city for work.

    plus does it has to be Swedish that kinda limits your chances .... maybe just go for supermodel and leave the rest open to fate ?

    Swedish supermodels are over rated... the hottest women on earth are Polish.

    Well, she doesn't have to be Swedish, but it would sure be nice! But I'm not picky, any supermodel will do!

    I had my last kid when I was 30, sheesh 10 years ago... 30 is a great decade, young enough to have fun, old enough to make enough money to pay for the stupid mistakes you will make by believing that you can still do the things you could in your 20's.

    I am doing the STP as well in July. See you there!

    Yeah! Twice your age. At 24, I thought 36 was old and now look at my oldness at 49.
