I've often wondered about aging....why is it wasted on the young??? As I sit here icing my knees and popping ridiculous amounts of ibuprofen, I can't understand why my body hurts the way it does just from teaching dance and cheer techniques??? I've done this my whole life! But, for some reason now that I'm in my 40's...the body wants to rebel....THIS JUST CAN'T BE!!!! My brain tells me I'm still knees and all my aches and pains tell me otherwise.

I can still "bust a move" with all the kids and MOST of the time put them to shame!!!....I pay for it later though...hahaha!!! Every once in awhile I'll even have kids stand in "awe" over some of the things I can do. Their ever famous line is, "wow, I didn't know you could move like that AT YOUR AGE!!!"....... But, let me tell you one of the greatest things about coaching....when they make comments like that....I can make them run laps till they puke!!!!! Who's laughing now girls???

I think having kids make you age prematurely. Because I KNOW I'm not old enough to feel this so damn old!
