I wrote out a whole blog post rambling about how wonderful and crazy life is. Filled with so many twists and turns – highs and lows. It was fun to write and even more fun to delete. My journal has been my best friend lately and all the nonsense I wrote was probably more for my journal than this blog, so I will give you the abbreviated version of my exciting news.

I have a mini bucket list. There are a couple of marathons on there in far away places {Hello London, Paris, Berlin}. My bucket list is one of those lists, that I put things on that would happen in a dream world or maybe when I’m in my 50s and my kids are grown and making them happen is more of a reality.

I’ve been fortunate enough that it seems like dreams have been coming true left and right lately. Some of these dreams are ones that I have literally dreamed about and others were dreams I didn’t even know I wanted till they were right in front of me and I found myself jumping up and down with excitement.

They say you should always have an updated passport at all times because you just never know, whoever they may be…..

I saw I needed just THAT {a current passport} when I entered a contest to win a trip for 2 to China to run The Great Wall of China Marathon AND….


Typing that makes my heart flutter.

In May, Eric and I will be making our way to China for a week and we will both run/walk/climb steps to finish 26.2 miles. I.can.not.believe.it. I’ve pinched myself multiple times since I found out. I haven’t told anyone other than close friends and family because I was worried if I said something it might not be true, or might not happen. It is happening. We just have to get our visas and pack our bags and in no time at all we will be on our way. I am THANKFUL beyond measure for family and for friends who were just as excited as I was and who have offered to help me with my kids while we are gone. Without them this wouldn’t be a reality for me.


From what I have read this is one of the hardest marathons in the world. Which means we really have our work cut out for us these next six or so weeks. I can’t wait to go on this adventure!!!
