I received an iPad from my dearest, on my birthday. This came as a shock as I was still lightly deliberating it with a Macbook. So far so good as I have downloaded some of my preferred songs and TED presentations, and enjoying them! Still haven’t got to activate my Internet connection though, as I am still figuring out the settings. I am tempted to pretend it is a mobile phone by talking into it in public, although she has forbade me to play the fool. Who knows? For a dare, I just might (not on my to-do list, yet).
I was pleasantly surprised that fellow bloggers, Matt Wong and John Cooke wrote their Bucket List. I was reminded of this infrequent practice from Phil Khoegan – host of The Amazing Race from his book, NOW – No Opportunity Wasted. My last list was about two years ago; my first was in 1995. Much has been fulfilled and accomplished since then. It is rewarding to review and renew the list. Like John wrote, it is a map and a plan for action. Decide on an Ironman race, sign up, make race preparations, train, race, and celebrate – a standard process for accomplishing the 226-kilometre triathlon. John, who earned a PB (11:37, and PBs in all three disciplines) at IMWA 2010, earned a slot for IMWA 2011 during the four-hour online registration. We will race together in Ironman Lanzarote in May.
