Some Things I Would Like To Do Someday: A List

May 30, 2014
try a barre class
see Arcade Fire in concert
do a systematic “listen-through” all of the music we own
be involved in running / developing a clinical study of some kind
cook through another cookbook – with A&C’s help!
eat at French Laundry (Laura went recently!)
adapt a peaceful nighttime routine that does NOT involve technology
take a family trip to Disney World
write a book.  maybe.
take a just-Josh-and-me trip back to Hawaii
see Iceland, New Zealand, Japan, Spain, Greece . . . 
go on a girls’ spa weekend
take Annabel on a girls’ spa weekend (you know, once she’s out of diapers . . .)
find a running partner in our neighborhood
run another marathon (and qualify for Boston, if we’re in fantasy mode here)
go on a wardrobe-makover shopping spree with a personal shopper
read the whole Harry Potter series with A&C
participate in a book club (or dinner party club?  or wine club . . .)
learn to swim (like, really swim with actual form)
speak fluent Spanish to my patients
sleep through the night again 🙂
Well, that helped my pump session go fast!  I actually think this is a pretty realistic list, except for maybe the Boston part.

    Keep going all the way to 100! It’s really interesting what winds up on there (and now I think I need to make another list…)

    Come to NZ! Let’s do a marathon in Queenstown (though we can’t BQ there)

    Sarah this is off topic but you may want to look at the website thredup for clothing. It is an online thrift store.

    I don’t think that BQing is an unrealistic goal. I remember reading in Runner’s World that the average age of a Boston Marathon participant is 42 (at which point life with A and C would be much more accommodating to a marathon training plan). Because the standards change as you age you don’t actually have to get faster. The trick is just not to get slower – at least that’s what I keep telling myself…

    Um I just have to say you could totally BQ! It might not be today or tomorrow, because with 2 little kids and a job you are limited on training time. But it WILL happen at some point when you have the time to really go for it! You are way faster than me, and I haven’t given up hope of BQing someday…but it might be in another 10 years (much less for you)! On another note, I’ve been thinking of you because we are headed to a pediatric endocrinologist in a few weeks…too bad you don’t live closer to me or we’d totally come to you!
