Revisiting My Bucket List

It has been awhile since I’ve revisited my bucket list.  I figured with some things crossed off and some new things to add, it would be a great time to take a look at it again.  It helps keep me motivated.  The best part of a bucket list is adding more as you go along in life and crossing things off that you complete.  Here is my updated bucket list:

Have a Daughter

Finish a half marathon (I think I’m close to 70 now)

Get walked off a ride at Disneyland or Disney World (Not super exciting, but for some reason I always wanted to do this.  It was the People Mover at Disney World that we were walked off)

Run NYC Marathon

Dine at Club 33 and be able to take my sister (Such a treat and I am so thankful for an amazing friend that made this happen)

Complete the Dopey Challenge  (x3 now and I’m registered for number 4)

Visit the Lincoln Memorial (x2 now)

Run the Chicago Marathon  (x2 now)
