Summer came roaring in this week with a vengeance here in the DC area. Hazy, hot and humid that’s what we have for the next few months. While those weather conditions are not my favorite, they won’t stop me from making my Summer Bucket List. There are definitely a few things I hope to do this summer.
Summer Bucket List -Fitness and Family
Destination Race: Chicago Rock n Roll weekend here I come. I have not been to Chicago in over 20 years! So when I heard that some of the blogger crew were meeting up, I jumped on the chance to meet them all in person. Plus, Rock n Roll races are always a blast.
Kayaking: Paddling around the Potomac River is such a blast and I have no idea why I don’t do it more often. Making plans to go with friends next week.
More tri races: I have one more tri on my schedule in 3 weeks but I am not sure I can let the summer slip by without adding another one in. The season is so short here and I feel I have to take advantage of it.
Family time: I plan to embrace as much family time as possible this summer. Both of my kids will be leaving in 2 months for college and we will be empty nesters. I may still be in a denial a bit of this whole thing but in the mean time, they all might get sick of me hanging around all summer.
New hobbies: I feel like I should come up with some new hobbies to keep me busy in the fall when I will have more to time to fill my day. Not sure what though. Any ideas?
Clear off my nightstand: I have a large pile of books waiting to be read on my nightstand. Now to just find time to sit down and get through them.
What’s on your summer bucket list? Anything I should add to mine?
