I’m a big list person. List making settles my brain when I start feeling overwhelmed and sometimes I save lists to look at later to remind myself of what I was thinking or doing or worrying about at a particular time…like the world’s most half-assed journal, I suppose.
I’ve got several on-going lists: places I want to visit, experiences I want to have, money goals I want to meet, etc*. I also have an athletic to-do list that I started when I was in college and have been neglecting ever since. In no particular order:
Swim in a Masters meet (completed July 2009)
Run a 5K
Run a 10K (completed Oct. 2002, finished 202 out of 211, with a blazing speed of 1:09:02)
Beat my 10K time
Complete an individual sprint triathlon
Learn to cross country ski
Compete in an open water swim
Qualify for Masters Nationals is swimming
Ride at least one day of RAGBRI
Run a half-marathon
Make it to the top of a rock climbing wall (seriously, every single time I’ve tried, I end up 3/4 of the way up and freeze)
Run a mile in less than 10 minutes (I am not a natural runner. I’m not embarrassed by this goal)
How about you? Any events or goals or times that get you moving?
* At no point will I ever use the phrase “bucket list” because that annoys me for some reason, but that is the basic idea of the on-going lists
