Crazy Goals

At 13 Going on Crazy the number 13 is a VERY lucky number, which got me to thinking about 13 things that I want to accomplish before I turn 30…This list has expanded WAY beyond 13 crazy goals, some I completed prior to turning 30 while some I still need to accomplish. Without further ado here is my complete list of 30 “to-do” items that I want to accomplish during my thirtieth year.

  1. Complete my first full marathon, look out Goofy 2013 here I come! Completed January 12, 2013 and January 13, 2013
  2. Have the courage to sign-up and train for the Walt Disney World 2013 Goofy Race and a Half Challenge. Yes, I understand that I will actually be 30 years old and 11 days on race day, but that still should count, shouldn’t it? Signed-Up June 12, 2012
  3. Overcome my fear of running beyond 13 miles…Completed October 29, 2012
  4. Bake/Cook at 10 unique gluten-free recipes.
  5. Fall in love and not get my heart broken
  6. Actually feel happy about my life, even if it is just for a moment
  7. Run at least 40 miles per month
  8. Run at least 5 races
  9. Run a half marathon sub 2 hours 40 minute
  10. Create iPhoto albums from previous races & time spent with my family
  11. Stay up all night and see the sunrise, okay maybe just wake up early and see it rise. I don’t do well on lack of sleep.
  12. Learn how to make fondant…Completed 12/6/2012
  13. Go to a drive-in theatre, do they still exist?
  14. See Bruce Springsteen &/or Bob Dylan in concert
  15. Go horseback riding on the beach
  16. Swim with the dolphins
  17. Go scuba diving
  18. Take a class in photography
  19. Join #TeamChallenge & raise money for Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation’s
  20. Try 30 new foods
  21. Go through my clothes that don’t fit/don’t wear once a month & donate to local charity
  22. Learn how to actually cook
  23. Run a night race
  24. Place myself in more “social situations”
  25. Read 1 intelligent novel every other month
  26. Discover local “stay-cations” (Being that I am so lucky to live in the amazing state of California)
  27. See at least 4 plays
  28. Spend the evening on the Queen Mary
  29. Be a more open and accepting person
  30. Take trapeze classes
I am hoping to hear some very interesting suggestions on what else to add to the list, should I have made it 30 before 30 or stick with lucky 13? I would love it if you’d join me in the madness and come up with your own lists, 25 before 25, 35 after 35, 13 before 2013, whatever get’s the blood in your veins flowing! I would love to hear from you. I hope that with this little assignment, we’ll inspire each other to stop putting things off and seize the day.Remember, wherever you are there you go!

    • 13 has oddly been very lucky for me. I always look forward to Friday the 13th! 🙂 Glad to hear that I am not the only one who finds this a lucky number!
