Before 30 Bucket List- DONE!!!

So, a couple years ago, I started a pretty short, mostly-athletic "before 30" bucket list. It grew a bit as I accomplished some items, but by my 29th birthday, it was finalized, and mostly accomplished. Here's the athletic part of the list:

1. Run a half marathon (I have now completed 9)
2. Run a full marathon (completed 5)
3. Run a Tough Mudder (completed 2, plus a Spartan and a Warrior Dash)
4. Run an ultra marathon (completed 2)
5. Do a triathlon 

As of yesterday, I can say it's done!!!!!!! With 5 months to spare, too.

Now, I can start making the Before 40 bucket list. Which will be big. Maybe not long, but big athletic feats.

1. Half Ironman.
2. Century ride on my bicycle.
3. Full Ironman.
4. Qualify for and run Boston.

Boom. There it is. Four huge goals. I have ten years to nail them, and in theory, the first two goals are stepping stones towards the third, and all that cross training just might keep helping me get faster.

A girl can dream. And dream big.

What goals have you set for yourself?

Do you have a before 30/40/50 etc list? Make one! Your are much more likely to accomplish something once you put it in writing! 


  1. That's awesome that you've completed a bucket list! And have done the things on your list multiple times! Congrats :)


  2. Congratulations! What an accomplishment!

  3. Woohoo! Congrats on checking off your before 30 bucket list! I should create a before 40 list, it is creeping ever closer! I love your goals for before 40.
