On May 6, 2013 I will turn 40.
The phrase Fit for 40 started being tossed around by Monika (who crosses into her 40s a mere 23 days before I do) a few months ago. I figured it was time to make a list. 40 goals for turning 40. Blending athletic and more... cerebral? experiential? goals I figure that completion of these things sometime before I turn 41 will make for a pretty fabulous 17 months.
Some of these I am working on now (#1, #38), some are ongoing resolutions (#14, #17, #40) and some of them are event specific (#3, #9, #10). Several have been lifted straight from Woody Guthrie's 1942 New Years Rulin's (#19, #21, #33) just because I liked them so much. Only one of them (#37) might be unreasonable in its challenge and logistics. Learning to spell tomatoes correctly didn't make the list but the embarrassment of posting the spelling error publicly should mean I'll never make the same mistake again.
All of them are posted here to keep me honest.
