I have been talking about running a marathon for a while now. I think 2009 will be the year! That's why I made it #1 on my list. I can't wait to cross some things off!

Does any one else have a Bucket List?

Good list... Um I think you need to wake up early tomorrow and watch the sunrise. Have you never done that?
I love some of those on the list. And the marathon. You can totally do it. Once you can run 5 miles you can run 26! Great job! H

Your list is impressive! I've had a rather vague, very short list in my mind for years; write a book, go on a sleigh ride. LOL! However, I can check off several from your list; 4, 14, 15, 22, 26, 27, 29, 35, 38, 41, 42, 46 and 49. I think #1 on my list right now is to find a way to bring one more baby into our family. :)

Marathon is on my list, too. I am a sahm with 4 kids and now that my youngest is in school, I am training to run the Venice Marathon in 2009...I will be 45!

I say...go for it!
