Last November I chose 20 things that wanted to complete in my 25th year of life… below is my update on my remaining things….. I have now signed up to run the Rock N Roll Half Marathon in Denver on October 20, 2013. Now I just need to lace up my shoes on this now yoga practicing body, that has not hit the pavement in (cough cough…. months).
Nothing really to update today except that I am just feeling really grateful today. Even in the midst of so much unknown I am really overwhelmed by the many things that are happening and the so many things I have to look forward too. (Did I mention I land in Denver Colorado next Friday!) Not to mention I got to skype tonight with two of my very favorite people Matt Hohler and Jason Walker, while they are together in Ohio. Day maker right there. Beardy and all I miss them both very much. It was so fun to see two people I love very much together hanging out…..
Happy Monday to you…. Below is the 20 things list update (blue indicates it is complete). Cheers from my yoga shala to yours…..
