Achieve the 100-pushup challenge

I’m in week two currently of the 100-pushup challenge! I’ve already gone from being able to do 2 pushups to 6+ in 2 weeks – surely 100 is not too far off? ;)

Have a beautiful wedding at home
Planning our wedding :D

After 5 years of dating and 2.5 living together, we’re engaged and planning a small wedding to be held at the house we just bought. This goal is pretty much guaranteed to be reached by May 2009 – and I can hardly wait!

run a marathon
Definitely worth doing!

My first marathon was the Marine Corps Marathon in October 2005, in Washington, DC. I trained w/Team in Training and raised money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society – within 5 months I went from “Never ran a day in my life…” to “Running 3x/week” and ultimately to “Marathon Finisher”. I HIGHLY recommend getting involved in a running group – having someone there to bug you about your running and check in with your progress really made a difference in my training.

Running that marathon was a huge endeavor for me, and I think I’d do it again – especially now that enough time has passed that I can’t remember how much it hurt to get out of bed the next morning! ;) Good luck to all you out there training & congrats to my fellow marathon finishers! :)
