A JOURNEY IN RUNNING, LIVING, LAUGHING AND LOVING

On being 30

Sunday, April 21, 2013

First, I have to share with you some of the things my kiddos at school said when they found out I was turning 30 this week: 

"30? You can't be 30!" -- A for you, student! 
"I hope I look like you when I'm 30!" -- A+ for you, student!
"30? That's so weird. You're only five years younger than my mom." -- Hmph. 

Mostly, though, being 30 has been great so far! I had a wonderful day at school on Thursday with lots of well wishes and treats from my coworkers and students. Dan and I enjoyed an amazing dinner at Corndance Tavern (That was another fun thing to tell students! "CORNDANCE? What kind of a place is THAT?!"). 

I hit my goal of running 500 miles before I turned 30 (500.8 miles, to be exact!), which means I want a new goal for 31. 

I've been thinking a lot about what the new goal should be, and am attempting to tie this in to my "summer of..." project. You can read more about that here. And I think I'm leaning toward making this summer the summer I clean it all up. The house needs organizing, the diet could use some cleaning, and life in general could use slightly more organization than I have now. So, organization is in the cards. 

I want to get signed up for some races here in the near future too. I've been able to maintain roughly ten miles a week or so for the last year, but without training, it's hard to stay motivated to run much. 

The goals for 30:
1. More races!
2. More Barre classes! 
3. More organization! 
4. More clean! 
5. More praying! :)
