What’s In A Year

Today is Friday. And do you know what that means?

It’s my birthday!

Yes, my birthday. I am a young 27 years old this year. Significantly closer to 30 than 20 and officially in my late 20’s. So, in honor of my birthday, here are 27 things I hope to accomplish this year before my next birthday.

1. Learn a new recipe

2. Dance and not care who sees


3. Dance with my husband

4. Take a nap curled up with Griswold

5. Try a new food

6. Make an impact on at least one of my students

7. Ride and run outside in the sunshine

8. Run outside in the snow

9. Swim in the lake with Gridwold

10. Enjoy a glass of local Finger Lakes wine while looking over beautiful Seneca Lake

11. Go on a trip somewhere with my amazing husband


12. Take a nap outside in my hammock

13. Run a race

14. Volunteer at a race

15. Redecorate a room in my house

16. Pay off my credit card

17. Plant a peach tree in my yard

18. Make a new friend

19. Cheer on my athletes as they cross the finish line of their dreams

20. Inspire someone to give triathlon a try

21. Laugh until I tear up

22. Get all glammed up for a night out and feel beautiful

23. Gallivant around Chicago with the Junebugs

24. Hike a new trail or park
