3 days away

In 3 days, I turn 30.

This really kind of blows my mind.  It doesn't feel like it's been that long ago that I was turning 25 and sort of having a mini quarter-life crisis.

In the past 5 years...

I've been laid off from a job I loved, had a job I hated, and then found an amazing job planning races and working with runners!

I've dated a lot, and I've had my heart broken a few times.

I found my best friend and got engaged!  (And am also becoming a stepmom to an awesome little boy!)

I've recently moved to another state.

I've traveled a lot.

I've run a lot.

I've learned a lot.

Honestly? I can't really summarize the last 5 years or even the 20s in words here.  It's been one heck of a journey, and I'm honestly not that sad to say goodbye to my 20s.

I feel excited about this next decade.  I'm getting married.  I'm going on a honeymoon to Italy.  I'll probably have another job or two.  I'd like to have some babies (not just yet, but in a few years.)  We will move back to Tennessee.  We'll probably buy or build our own house and become homeowners.  I hope to run more.  I will definitely love more.

On Monday, I'll only be a day older than I was a day before... but there's something about 30.  It definitely doesn't feel as old as I remember thinking it would back when I turned 20... but it feels solid.  I feel like I finally know who I am (well, for the most part.)  It took a lot of ups and downs in my 20s, but I feel like I've come into my own.

30.  Just seems a little hard to believe I'm there.
