    Yeah 3-5 miles is about my limit on running races (5k-8k). Anything beyond that it no longer seems fun for me ... so as a jogger one would assume I would want to do a half marathon or something but nope, no desire. Kiso I highly recommend an actual 5k event, they are a ton of fun and the energy helps feed you for both that run and future ones.

    I have never made a "bucket" list but there are things I would like to do that I haven't yet. (there are a lot of things I have done, luckily. This includes tour Europe, see the Great Wall in China, The Louve, de Orse' and the Hermitage museums, Hiked in Yosemite, Grand Canyon, Arches, Bryce, and Zion. Smaller excursions to Crater Lake, Rainier, Olympics. Been to Vancouver Island and SE Alaska including Glacier Bay).

    Things I still want to do:
    -Run an adventure race (hiking, paddling, biking, etc...)
    -Jasper and Banff national Parks
    -See a wolf in the wild (that was a good one elinox)
    -Travel to Iceland and perhaps Scotland and Ireland
    -Get my idea to get plastics out of the oceans to an actual thing that is functionally removing plastics ....
    -Travel to New England and explore

    That is about it as well. a community would be cool but not sure how viable that is for me at this time ...

    I'm going back to Yellowstone in September 2019 so hopefully I'll get to see wolves in the wild again! It was one of the top most breathtaking experiences of my life.

    I want to go to Iceland too.

    And back to Scotland and Ireland, of course.

    Here's some of mine:

    ☆ Visit Geocaching HQ in Seattle
    ☆ Get a tattoo or two, probably a lynx for one, and a series of pawprints in a "bracelet" arrangement on my wrist
    ☆ industrial piercing in my ear (just got this one done today, but am excited since it was a goal for me for a long time)
    ☆ visit a country outside the USA, probably somewhere in the UK
    ☆ Get a realistic or semi-realistic fullsuit/quadsuit commissioned of my lynx

    Geocaching HQ is in Seattle? WELP I missed out on that one, haha! I did move a trackable over 1000 miles and deposited it on the Olympic peninsula though. :3

    Congrats on the industrial! How do you like it? I imagine that would be a hard one to sleep with.

    I might add tattoo to my bucket list. Right now my only planned one is a small ring one - fiance and I decided we will go that route rather than traditional rings, and I think it's a great choice for us.

    Yup! HQ is in Seattle!

    I love the industrial, it's still sore but I sleep on my right side anyway so it won't be a problem to sleep with it in.

    Ooh, ring tattoos sound neat! Any ideas what you'd want them to look like?

    Yeah, working on some sun / moon designs; the tattoos will be my own art. We've used that symbology with each other quite a lot over the years so it'll be a bit personal. I don't know if we want bands going around or not. I sort of think the simplicity of a "stamp" on top would be fine. If we can think of what we might like for bands, I could see myself going for that too.

    Getting over my fear of driving, working on completing art and my book, and going on more adventures.

    Having to take a multi-day solo road trip for my fieldwork in grad school *really* helped with my driving anxiety. It is one case where I think the psychological concept of "flooding", or serious exposure to a fear to become desensitized to it, worked out well for me.

    Your mileage (heh!) may vary. But in any case, I really recommend prioritizing working on that; it really opens up a lot of freedom when you feel comfortable enough to get around on your own. I still have some anxiety when driving, but I like in a big city now and am really amazed I can handle it with such relative ease. I didn't have money for my own car until after grad school, so my driving opportunities were limited and I got little experience as a result, building up nervousness around my lack of experience and general fear of getting obliterated on the road.
