Bucket List Item

When I was younger, (c'mon, not that many years ago), I loved to run, especially the longer distances and one of the things I always dreamed of doing was running a marathon.

Now 2 growing kids and lots of poundage later, it almost seems an impossible dream. But just today, I read on one of the blogs I follow (http://weight-loss-story.blogspot.com) of a success story: from 270 pounds to Ironman Cozumel!

So it's not impossible.  I'm going to start small and aim for not this year's, but next year's Sun Fun Run.  I`m hoping to get Big J interested too.

 

Okay, it's not a marathon, it's only 10k.  But it's a start. The fast runners finish in about 1/2 an hour, and the route is very nice - all along our sea wall. 

So: I`m starting my own Bucket List and Run a Marathon is going to be the first item on it.

How many items can you have on a Bucket List anyway?

  1. I don't have a bucket list and marathons is definitely not going to be on the list. I don't like running anymore, it just adds pressure to my aging joints.haha..Keep it up!
