101 Failure or Success

67 of 101 complete. Not a great stat. It’s a little sad that I wasn’t able to complete more items off my 101 list. Some I have legit excuses for – such as moving away from Nashville where there were 4 items I was not able to complete.  And yes, it was difficult to do some thing after moving and being busy with school and finding myself in a new city.  I can come up with a million excuses, however most were left undone due to laziness. Some required enlisting friends to help and I didn’t push enough. Many just required planning ahead and organizing. A handful I know for a fact I will do in the next 2-3 months, just not in time to make the official list.

I am, though, completely happy with those I was able to complete. It challenged me to do new things and gave me goals to work towards, which I love. You can see my full list – completed and uncompleted items – here: 101 in 1001.

Some highlights from the 1001 days

101 in 1001

I have finally finished creating my 101 list, to be completed in 1001 days. Thanks to Meghan for the initial inspiration and to Whitney for the inspiration to finally finish my list and start it. Nothing on the list is huge or spectacular….just some things that I want to complete in a “short” (relatively) amount of time. I feel like I am opening a new chapter in my life with a new job and “growing up,” so what better way to start a new chapter with some new goals?! I will finish my list on April 29, 2013.

I will use my completions as my blog posts and will keep the list updated here!! Just click on the 101 page at the top to keep updated!!

Life Accomplishments

There really aren’t too many things in my life yet that I would consider a major “life accomplishment.” Yes, we all have accomplishments and meet goals, but yesterday I completed a major one: my first half marathon. I completed the Country Music Half Marathon in 2:16:03, running (aka jogging) the whole thing and not walking at all!!!! Do I ever want to do a full marathon?? NO. But more halves? Yes, definitely.

Thanks to Meghan, Tyler, Lauryn, Boone and everyone else who came out to cheer!! And a BIG thanks to Meg for snapping some pics!! (sadly the action shots didn’t turn out, but oh well! you can still tell it me! :))
