My Fitness Bucket List

Hello my name is Susan and I am a Pinterest addict.  Actually I'm not really an addict because I don't spend a TON of time on Pinterest, but the problem is when I do.  When I'm on Pinterest I can't help but try to recreate everything I see, or think I can recreate everything I see.  Ugh.  I just spent 20 minutes making this.

I plan on printing it out and hanging it up on my black and white wall.  Cute right?

But you see, that's NOT the reason I was on Pinterest at all.  I was on Pinterest grabbing a screen shot for tonight's blog when I got totally sidetracked.  I saw this pin and figured I could recreate it in no time.  Granted I was right, but I "wasted" 20 minutes of my life that I'll never get back.  Ha!

Anyway, like I said, the reason I was on Pinterest in the first place was to grab a screenshot of my newest Pinterest Board.  I've seen other people making pins to their "Fitness Bucket List" board and I instantly knew I wanted to make one myself.

I tried to keep my board really concise.  Let's face it there are a million things I would LOVE to do, but I'd never be able to do them all.  So, I included my immediate wants and some of my longer term goals.  I'm pretty happy with my list.   So, here it is.

My Fitness Bucket List:

  • Do one unassisted pull up 
Right now this goal seems very unattainable and it's not something I'm actively working on.  Well, I am kinda because I'm trying to strengthen my upper body, but I don't actively try to do pull ups.  I do know, however, that I could even bust out one without assistance.  It's something I'd like to be able to do one day. 
I missed this run this year.  Whenever I went to register it was SOLD OUT.  I never anticipated it would sell out (obviously) and I am incredibly sad I missed out on the opportunity.  I think it would be so much fun!  
  • Run the Pittsburgh FULL Marathon 
Now that I've run the half twice I KNOW I have to run the full in my hometown.  For no other reason than it is my hometown and I'd love to see the city from this unique perspective.  
I actually signed up to be an assistant coach, but due to the time the club usually meets it wasn't something I was really able to commit to.  When Ella is old enough to be a "Girl on the Run" I will definitely be a coach and I can't wait!  
  • Ride the Tour de Cure 100 Mile Ride (the one I broke my shoulder in) 
Hair of the dog.  That's all I'm saying!  
2 Vans, a bunch of girls, no sleep, no showers and lots of running.  What's not to love?  
  • Run the Disney Marathon 
I only have a few places I'd really LOVE to run a marathon and Disney is definitely one of them.  I LOVE Disney world (it is the happiest place on earth) and I'd like to see if running a marathon on Disney property translate to a happy marathon. 
  • Complete an Ironman 
This is a lifelong dream and it WILL be mine someday.
  • Run the NYC Marathon 
This will probably be the first item checked off my bucket list.  November 4th 2012!  I'm IN!!! 
  • Run a sub 27:00 5k 
I'm so "slow" this may never happen, but this is my goal for now..... 

So there you have it.  What do you think? 

Do you have a fitness bucket list?  What's your #1 fitness bucket list item?

Please...I think a 27 min 5K is very attainable for you. You are NOT slow! A fun thing to think about!

I've done "mock 5Ks" on the trail and my fastest is 28:15. I don't know why but I can't get my legs to move fast for a long period of time. I should easily be able to do a sub 27 but it does NOT come that easily (if at all). We shall see!

I also would like to run at Disney World. Maybe the half if I ever get there.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this idea! We share some bucket items too - unassisted pull-up & Disney marathon girl!

Great list! We share a lot of the same goals. I think I am running a Color Run in Pittsburgh in August. You will love Girls on the Run. I can't wait for you to coach! And, I KNOW you can run a sub 27 minute 5k. Think about the last mile of the Pittsburgh half!!
