Birthday Weekend: Birthday Challenge

This weekend is my big birthday. I decided with the fact that I will be turning 30 I wanted to make goals for this year to complete by the end of the year I turned 30. And to be honest as I review them I think I am doing well so far. I am making progress, which is the point!

So as for my birthday itself... Well I have always had a hard time getting people together for my birthday. Everyone is always out of town. So after making an attempt at a get together and again hearing everyone would be gone (and getting bummed) I decided I would do what would be my ideal activities for my birthday. How would I chose to spend my weekend?! I would like to try a new challenge... So here is what I came up with over the course of the 4th to the 8th:
Run 30k
Bike 3hrs (Climb Mt Wachusett)
Swim 3k
3hrs of Yoga
 I have invited friends to join me in any of these activities tho many will be gone and most have responded with "are you sure you just don't want to get drunk?" Luckily D has said he will do whatever I want for my birthday. I figure why not try a new challenge... and honestly I see it as a celebration of the fact that I am in the best shape of my life. I may be turning 30 but I am in WAY better than I was when I was 20 and just recently quit my college swim team. And even when I was 15 and swimming 2 times a day I had horrible nutrition habits. So I think the best thing I can do is celebrate this!

I also hope to hit the beach, get in some fireworks, do a nice dinner with D, maybe a clam bake with my family, see the movie I can't WAIT to see Despicible Me 2, and get some SLEEP!
