It’s inevitable.  Once you see how far you can be pushed you have to push a little farther.  I started out like most beginners. After losing some weight I just wanting to complete just a 5k.  Then I moved onto a 10k and then a half-marathon.  After that I switched some attention to cycling and I did back to back day century rides.

Up until now I didn’t really have a solid vision of what I wanted to accomplish next, so I made a list. What came out was my fitness bucket list.  So these have become my goals, and given me a little bit of focus of what to train for next.  The may change over time and as my fitness level increases, but for now this is it.

So here is my bucket list as it stands today, as well as some things I have already checked off my list.
