      I don't have as many as you but:


      1.  Qualify for and run Boston


      2.  Complete a half Ironman (not sure when the heck I think I am gonna do this one...I don't own a bike and I don't swim well)


      3.  Run a marathon in another country


      4.  Come in first female in a race (obviously, this would need to be a small!)

      PRs:  5K 22:59, 10K 46:54,HM: 1:51:15


        Good lists.  I don't really have any bucket list things that pertain to running.


          1.  Boston, of course.

          2.  3:30 - 3:20 marathon.  Not sure if I have it in me, but won't know until I try!

          3.  1:40 - 1:35 half marathon.  Again, have no idea if this is possible yet.

          PRs:  1:38:10 (HM)  3:32:46 (FM)

            7. Still be running when I'm 90 (a.k.a. Ed Whitlock's records are going down Big grin )

            8. a 100-mile week (as part of a normal/realistic training program (not a one-off gimmick just to see if I can do it)).

              Up Next:



                1. Qualify and Run Boston

                2.  Win a female overall award

                3.  Win an award of any kind in a big race .  A girl can dream Big grin.


                  I don't have much of a bucket list, TBH.  I just want to keep enjoying it as long as I can.


                  I would love to qualify for and run Boston, but I'm not going to call it a bucket list item because it's something that I'd have to play by ear depending on how I continue to improve.


                  Maybe, for right now, the bucket list item is just to break 4:00 in a marathon.  Something that is challenging but within my capabilities.

                  My wildly inconsistent PRs:

                  5k: 24:36 (10/20/12)  

                  10k: 52:01 (4/28/12)  

                  HM: 1:50:09 (10/27/12)

                  Marathon: 4:19:11 (10/2/2011) 



                    • Boston! (I think I'd do Boston to Big Sur)
                    • Break 1:35 in the half
                    • I have a few marathons I'd like to run: Chicago, CIM, Top of Utah...I already qualified for NYC 2013 so I'm not counting that.
                    • When its time to have a family, fit the running in!

                    13.1: 1:45 | 26.2: 3:55

                      Some great goals, and some very ambitious runners.

                      Flinders that's a LIST!


                      I would love to BQ, don't care about running the race so much.

                      Running a 6 minute mile would be spectacular but I'm not Nolan Shaheed so this may be tough!

                      PBs since age 60:  5k- 24:36, 10k - 47:17. Half Marathon- 1:42:41.

                                                          10 miles (unofficial) 1:16:44.
