When I made my 30 before 30 list just after my 29th birthday, I wasn't sure exactly how much progress I would be able to make on it in just one year's time. Roughly a month after my 30th birthday, I must admit I am super proud of all the items I was able to mark off the list. I am a firm believer in writing goals down and telling others about them being two of the most vital pieces to actually achieving them. I think my progress on the list is a great example. I really enjoyed pushing myself on some of these items. And I loved putting together the monthly recaps for the items that were recurring from month to month. I loved it so much that I wanted to do one last final review of each item...mostly as a reflection for myself to be honest! So...here we go!
3 - complete Year 2 (done March 2013) and Year 3 scrapbooks (layout done June 2013)
*I haven't technically finished this one, but most of the work is done!
*We leave TONIGHT!! So excited for the adventure!!
9 - read through the entire Bible
*This one was a MAJOR fail. I started and had great intentions, but I did not follow through. It is also on my bucket list so I will continue to work on making this one a reality.
10 - complete a couple's study with Chris (began The 5 Love Languages study in Spring 2013)
*We are only about halfway through the book so far. June and July were super busy travel months for us, but we plan to finish it soon.
13 - be able to comfortably run an 11-min mile at a 10k event
*This one was also a MAJOR fail. Somehow instead of getting faster, I think I have gotten slower...boo :( Regardless, I am still running so I guess it isn't a total loss.
14 - run (at least) one half marathon (signed up for one, but it got cancelled...boo!)
*To be honest, I was pretty upset about this one. I looked far and wide to find a half marathon that fit with my travel schedule for this summer and was pumped when I found one in Pittsburgh - where we have lots of friends. I was so bummed when it got canceled.
22 - sign up for improv classes
*So Chris and I attended a one day class in August, but I am still planning to do a 6-8 week classes...sometime soon.
