Yesterday was my 29th birthday! I had such a great day after a fun weekend with my family, and since I love birthdays figured why not just make this my whole birthday week. When I was in high school I thought it was the best time ever until I got to college and thought what could top that. Since then each year has only been better and better. Last year was probably my best yet, so I can’t wait to see what 29 brings. With 30 right around the corner as a pretty big milestone birthday I thought it’d be fun to create a 30 Before 30 list of things I want to do this year before the big 3-0.
I broke my list into several categories in no particular order below. Seeing as this is a fitness blog a lot of them are based around that, but I threw a few others in there as well. My categories are Racing, Fitness Challenges, Around Town, Getting Certified, Social Stuff and Grown Up Things. I’d love to hear your thoughts on my list. Did you or will you do something similar before hitting a milestone birthday? What would be on your list?
- Boston Qualifying Time
- Race in Hawaii
- Break 21 in a 5k
- Break 44 in a 10k
- Run another race back in my hometown (Syracuse!)
- Set a PR in a race I’ve done before
- Run a track race
- Do a triathlon
- 50 consecutive push-ups
- 100 consecutive burpees
- 5-minute plank
- 8-minute wall sit
- Bike for 30 miles
- Go hiking around Virginia
- Go to 3 D.C. museums or sights I’ve never been to before
- Eat out at 3 D.C. restaurants I’ve never been to before
- CPR/AED Certification
- NASM Certification
- Spinning Certification
- RRCA Coaching Certification
- USATF Coaching Certification
- Do 30 group or partner runs this year
- Volunteer for races at least 10 times
- Go for a run in 3 new cities
- Watch 3 movies on the AFI top 100 list
Grown Up Things
- Try 3 new foods
- Cook a turkey dinner
- Attempt to make homemade pasta
- Buy my parents dinner (they make this harder than you may think)
- Find a new place to move into and learn how to rent current condo
Happy belated birthday! I love your list. I didn’t have a 30 for 30 list last year for my birthday, but I think I would have dreaded that birthday a lot less if I had. Have a great birthday week!
Love this list!!! You are going to rock 29. Happy birthday!
Thanks Megan! I’m excited – feels like it’s going to be a great year!
