So This is 30

Here I am... finally hitting the 30 mark!  Kristen and I spent an amazing 30th birthday weekend taking in the sights and sounds of the Super Bowl - catching some of the events and watching the big game on the big day with my favorite gal!

So with that, my 30 Before 30 List officially comes to an end.  A year full of amazing memories and incredible triumphs.  To read posts about the things that I accomplished, click here.  However, there were a handful of things that I didn't get accomplished.  So although the list officially comes to a close, the remaining things still are my goals:

1.  Read the Bible
I made it about halfway through this year, and I can't wait to see what else lies in the pages.

2.  Run marathon #2 - sub- 5:00
I've debated about this one since I ran my first marathon a year and a half ago.  Some days I lean toward running another.  Some days I don't.  So we'll see what the future holds for this goal.

5.  Publish or Sell a Photograph
This fall, I was able to have a few of my photos featured in a gallery in Gunnison.  It very much accomplished what had I intended - taking a risk and taking my photography to a new level.  So although nothing sold or published, it was a successful year.

11.  Be Debt Free
This was a huge goal from the get-go.  I did manage to knock a couple thousand dollars off my grand total though, so we're getting there!

12.  PR in 3 race distances: 5K, 10K, and Half Marathon
I managed to do well in a 10K, but overall, my running tanked this year.  Back to the grind!

17.  Get below 200 pounds
Not anywhere close, and actually went the wrong way...

21.  Do a pull up 
I actually came closer than I've ever come on a couple of occasions.  This is the year!

23.  See a mountain lion in the wild
Some day...

28.  1 Second Every Day Project
I have the videos... now I just need the time to make the final project.

30.  Do something unforgettable
This year was amazing, but outside of the things I DID accomplish on the list, nothing really warrants the grandiose caliber I was hoping for to cross this one off.

Despite the fact I didn't hit all my goals, the purpose of this whole thing was met and exceeded.  I wanted this to be a great year, and this gave it a fun spin on it.  And when all was said and done, 29 was one of the best years I've ever had in my life.

But 30 is shaping up to be one for the ages.  Stay tuned!
