Several of the women who have committed to the Tall Mom 1000+ mile Challenge have been blogging about the three things they want to accomplish before they die. Since reading the first response, I've been thinking about what is so important that I want to be sure I do it before I die. After much thought, here it is... my list of three things I want to accomplish or do before I die:
1. Grow slowly old together with D. Included in this is building our family, enhancing our relationship, and having a lot of fun together. I hope to cross the finish line of several marathons with him, cross the finish line of a marathon with him and K someday, enjoy many multi-course dinners and fine wines, and travel with him. I envision us being in our 90s sitting on a porch swing, sipping lemonade and still enjoying each others presence.
2. I want to complete an Ironman and qualify for the Boston Marathon. I want to put on my resume that I qualified for Boston and am an Ironman.
3. I want to become a college professor. I would really like to teach environmental science at a small liberal arts college.
Anyone else want to share what they'd like to accomplish before you die?
