So, remember the post I wrote about the countdown to the next decade of my life? Well, believe it or not, but in a week, it’ll drawn down to the big event: my 30th birthday.
In the past few weeks, I’ve had a lot of fun adventures – visiting one of my favorite places (Disney), running lots of fun races (Sarasota Half, Irish Celtic 5K, Robinson Preserve Twilight 5K), traveled to Texas saw my BFF Liz get married, got accepted to the Chicago Marathon and probably took nothing short of 987,028 pictures of Dug.
All in all, I’ve kept pretty busy, made lots of plans for the year ahead and, as always, noticed time going too quickly. In the last 23 days (give or take), I’ve been reminded that life certainly is short, and there’s just not enough time to harbor negativity – and have focused on enjoying the simple things – friends, family, and those little moments.
In the next seven days, I’ll continue that trend as I take the road out of the 20’s – reminding myself that no matter what I thought I’d be doing, or where I thought I’d be at age 30, it’s perfectly okay that it doesn’t line up exactly with reality. In the next seven days, I look forward to celebrating the steps that brought me to today, while also working on what’s yet to come – a new “year,” new opportunity, and of course, new chance to become even better, stronger and more generally, more awesome 😉
Here’s the agenda for the last days of 29:
Monday, 3/31: #outrunchat at 8 PM Eastern! Come join me on twitter, tweeting from my Outrunning the Monorail account for chat and training tips!
Tuesday, 4/1: Yet to be decided awesomeness (+ weekly volunteering at GOTR)
Wednesday, 4/2: Ringling Volunteer Appreciation Event @ the Circus Museum!
Thursday, 4/3: Girls, Inc Luncheon at the Ritz Carlton!
Saturday, 4/5: 5K in Ybor City with Kat – my last race in the 25-29 AG!
Sunday, 4/6: Yet to be decided awesomeness
Monday, 4/7: The BIG 3-0!
It’ll be a fantastic send-out of the 20’s, I believe – which warrants all those exclamation points 😉
What has been your favorite birthday celebration?
