In Her Shoes

Tackling my bucket list, one half marathon at a time.

Bucket List

I am constantly adding to this list. For some reason I feel the need to accomplish all items by the time I’m 30. Of course, that won’t happen…but I still plan to try. I’ll create a new bucket list when that time comes.

  • Send a message in a bottle
  • Stand on 4 Corners
  • Ride a helicopter
  • Go to the top of the Saint Louis Arch

  1. I never noticed you had a list. All of these are very attainable, sans the Amazing Race, somewhat out of your control but there is no reason why you wouldn’t be able to make it on! I will put together my international cities list and you can adjust it for your own use.

    PS- you should be able to cross off three of these items in June : Hollywood sign, Rodeo Dr and the marathon…good luck!

  2. LOVE your bucket list!! It’s great to put it out there for the world to see – good luck on reaching them all – you can do it!! πŸ™‚

  5. Hi Megan, I came across your blog and read your latest post about Fred. It made me feel a little sad even though I don’t know who he is. Thank you for your reflections on that post.

    I think your bucket list of to-dos before 30 is really great! I have just completed an iPhone app (adream) where people can share their dreams and goals in a fun way. It’s my little dream of helping others achieve theirs in this way. Do check it out if you own an iPhone and hope it helps you πŸ™‚

    All the very best, Ray

    • Hi Ray, thanks for your note! Unfortunately, we get these nasty little reminders every once in awhile to be good. I just downloaded the app and can’t wait to check it out! Thanks for sharing it πŸ™‚
