I run. I run a classroom. I run my life! I can't promise any eloquent words of wisdom, but I can share what it's like to be a runner and a teacher, and everything in between.

30 things before I'm 30

Being a teacher certainly has its perks. One of which includes 2 glorious weeks on break for the holidays! :)

I've had some time to reflect as I spend some quality time with the fam bam and running up a storm.  I recalled that a friend of mine had made a list of things she wants to do before she turns 30.  Though getting older doesn't exactly freak me out just yet, (but I do still feel like I'm 19 years old!) I thought it'd be fun to make a list of my own.  

I tried to only put items on this list if I actually thought I could do them.  Of course there are other things I'd love to do in life, but 30 is a little bit close!

30 Things Before I’m 30
1.     Run a full marathon
2.     Run in a destination race (Races I have in mind are: a Rock and Roll series race, Bloomsday Race in Washington, etc.)
3.     Attend an NBA game in an arena other than Arco (Power Balance Pavilion)
4.     Bet on March Madness in Tahoe/Reno/Vegas
5.     Learn to make my Abuela’s 'Arroz Con Pollo' by myself
6.     Coach a youth soccer team
7.     Take a picture of our Old Fair Oaks brick and frame it
8.     Hike Half Dome
9.     Build and Grow a garden in my backyard
10. Go beach camping
11. Go to the Garlic Festival in Gilroy
12. Maintain my “Running My Life” blog
13. Sew something I can wear (without Abuela’s help, or too much of it J )
14. Ride in a limo for a special occasion
15. Take a picture with all of my cousins in one photo
16. Decorate my house/apartment for Halloween
17. Visit the NBA hall of fame
18. Host a dinner party
19. Spend a month committing random acts of kindness
20. Plan a girl’s weekend
21. Get married
22.  Go to Hawaii
23. Meet someone famous
24. Attend a boot camp or personal training session
25. Make an ice cream cake
26. Visit the corn maze in Woodland
27. Bake bread from scratch
28. Go on a road trip down Highway 101
29. Learn to play Craps
30. Volunteer to help with a race (host one, aid station, etc.)

We'll see how many of these actually come true!  Hopefully more than not!


  1. GREAT LIST!! There are a few on there that we should do together...like #1 :) Good luck and I can't wait to read all about it!

  2. What a fabulous idea and a fabulous list! The secret to achieving goals is to write them down so you've got that covered. Now onward to working on your list!

    luv, M
