What Will I Do When I Retire? – August Blogging Challenge – Aug. 27th

Why do you Canadians always have to throw your healthcare and retirement into our American faces???  Ok, seeing how it’s an election year, I could go off on a political rant right about now, but this is a fitness and health blog.  Not a how much the government blows blog.

So assuming I’m allowed to retire and am not forced to spend my golden years as a mindless corporate drone, I intend to live it up on the $5 in social security that may be left over for me.  Ramen for everyone!!!  Oops, back to politics.  I’ll try to get back on task before I lose all but 2 of my followers.  Thank goodness both of my parents are bleeding heart liberals and love me unconditionally.

Let’s start again…

When I grow up, if my body still lets me, I’d love to be able to travel around knocking races off my bucket list.  I’d love to be able to say that I raced in all 50 states and several countries as well.  I want to be able to enjoy my old age by being fit, healthy, and happy.

If that doesn’t work out, then plan B is become a cougar.

  1. Australia has pretty good healthcare and retirement plans too 😉

    I want to keep working for a long time. I want to be in a position where I go to work because I enjoy it and not because I need the money. I work with a lot of older patients, and the ones that retire early (and don’t keep themselves active!) are the ones that seem to go downhill the quickest.

  2. That answer ROCKS!!!
    For me, I think the bikini competitions won’t really work at 84, so Ima be a Jedi Knight. (But being a cougar is a good option B.)
