My Honey Bucket List


I have been keeping a bucket list for at least the past 6-7 years (or more). Most of the stuff on the list is travel related like visiting certain places in the world, swimming with the dolphins and other general things you would expect on a bucket list (skydiving anyone?).

But, this list isn’t necessarily about jumping out of airplanes, seeing the northern lights in person and flying in space. As this list is pretty much ALL about running … hence the Honey Bucket reference. The list includes races I want to run, goal times I want achieve and running things I want to do.

Here is my list and I am sure there will be more to add later, but this is a good start.

  • Run 180 races over 13.1 miles by age 40.

    Run a race in 2 states in 2 days. Run the Famous Potato Half or full. Run the Chicago Marathon (hello! You went there on your mission AND it is the biggest race!).
