Marathon training really does take your life away from you, so now that I have all of this time on my hands (and omg my boy is going to be home with me after tonight!) I'm amazed with all the prospects!
Surgery is just around the corner (damn, I need to find all that paperwork and do that before it gets to be too late...) so I'm starting to get a bit anxious. I'm sure it won't be a big deal, but the downtime is going to kill me.
I'm ridiculously sore and I still want to go for a run tonight, what does that tell you?
I'm starting to think about my bucket list--things I want to do before I die. It's pretty short right now--but it's also pretty extreme:
1) Do a race (any distance) on every continent (except Antarctica...doesn't count, it's an ice flow). I came up with this one since Brannon's moving to Africa for 2 years for the Peace Corps--why not?
2) Do a race (any distance, though I'm considering saying only 10+ mile races count) in every state
3) Do all Ragnar relays (1 down, 14 to go!)
4) Do the Ragbrai (bike across Iowa)
5) Take a hang gliding lesson (don't worry Mom, I'll stay close to the ground)
6) Go Ice Climbing (again, Mom, I'll take a lesson and call it a day) http://www.utahmountainadventures.com/ice.shtml
7) Climb Mt. Fuji
8) Do at least once triathlon--any distance
9) Do the tough mudder
I'm looking to add to it. What's on your bucket list?
