For accountability

November 1, 2012

So there’s this secret “bucket list” I made with a bunch of secret things I want to do before I turn 30 on it. I will post the full list and the outcomes on that day. I’m keeping them a secret because: some of them are really lame and I don’t want to get discouraged by people pointing out they’re lame, some of them are really hard and I want to know if I can do them alone, and some of them are my mom reads this blog.


There’s one item on there I’m not keeping a secret. I’m posting it up here because I want to maximize how ashamed I’ll be of myself if I don’t complete it. I’ve been talking about it for ages now but I have to actually do it.

Before I turn 30 I want to run a Team In Training half-marathon and raise a bunch of money doing it. You have to promise to hold me to that and shame me mercilessly if I don’t. Unless I break my leg or something, in which case I get an extension, not a free pass.

    Thats a great idea, I should do the same before I turn 30. And learning to knit will be on it.

    Can we start the shaming today?
    (make sure you give me warning so I can sponsor you)

    This is an outstanding goal. I, too, would like to do this before I turn, erm, maybe before YOU turn, um, well, I would like to do this someday. Agreed with KidK, though. Warn us in time to sponsor.

    A gentle reminder that registration for the summer season (Vancouver and San Diego) is now open. PS: I will be coaching the summer season for the walk and run/walk teams.
