Progress Update: November 2013

by in Courage, Health/Fitness/Appearance, Travel

I can’t believe it’s been over 3 months since I updated this blog. Time flies when you procrastinate. I have been updating the Facebook page regularly though, so please go “like” it.

Goal #1. Visit all 50 states in the US

In September, I presented at the Mountain Plains Library Association conference in Sioux Falls, SD, and then went on a road trip and visited North Dakota and Iowa.

3 new states in 3 days, that’s pretty good.

Iowa

Just 7 more states to go to accomplish this goal:

  • Alaska
  • Idaho
  • Utah
  • Wyoming
  • Montana
  • Kentucky
  • Delaware

Goal #2. Set foot on all 7 continents

Now 1 closer. I went to the Pangborn Sensory Science Symposium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in the summer, and set foot on South America for the very 1st time. Now 3 more to go: Antarctica, Australia and Africa.

Speaking of Brazil…

Goal #4. See a football match at Estadio do Maracana, Rio, Brazil

It’s such a iconic stadium and it was just completed when I went. Loved it!

Goal #23. Conquer the fear of doing a handstand

Definitely making progress, but there are good days and bad days.

Goal #39 Run a 5k

It was freaking tough! I am not built to run and I will never enjoy running. But I did it! With my yogi friend Lindsey’s support (who ran slowly with me the entire way), I finished it! In fact, we were both winners in our respected age group. I am not telling anyone how many people actually ran. 🙂

Before. After. Winner!!
