I know that we haven’t celebrated Labor Day yet, but I can’t stop feeling that the end of the year will be upon us at any moment. I have already started making a Christmas list for the family, and so it just seems natural that I should start thinking about next year’s bucket list.This year has been pretty much consumed with planning for Baby Addie (although I still feel like we haven’t done nearly enough…) and I am sure that next year will (and all subsequent years) will also revolve around this little girl who already has her daddy wrapped around her finger!
However, as my belly starts to grow and stretch farther than I thought humanly possibly (and the pounds keep coming…), I am determined more and more next year to push my body towards a seemingly unreachable personal goal. In 2014 I want to run a 1/2 marathon. I know that millions of people around the world run these events each year, and even further….however for me 13 miles might as well be 13,000 miles! This task (and the marathon) have been on my bucket list for years, however with the baby bump and the added pounds I feel like being to accomplish this task post-baby would make the reward that much sweeter. So I registered for the jogging baby stroller and penciled this 1/2 marathon onto the 2014 bucket list. I have a couple of 10Ks that I am looking at completing as well before the November 2014 Rock-n-Roll Marathon on Savannah, so wish me luck! (Now that this is in cyber-space somewhere instead of just floating around in my head I think I will have more motivation to make it happen…)
