Today’s Thursday’s Three is all about counting down. Now I believe we shouldn’t wish time away, time is moving fast enough as it is. In fact, recently I found a fascinating article in the Washington Post about how we perceive time, I highly recommend taking a few minutes to read the article and watch the video. You can find it here. Even though time should be cherished, I find myself counting down to certain things. Sometimes it’s a race, or seeing family, or a trip, or the holidays… so today I have three countdowns to share. 32 hours until I see my Mom and we have a super fun filled weekend, including a wine and painting class, a trip to the City Market, yoga on the outfield of Kauffman Stadium, watch the Royals beat the White Sox, and running the Labor Day 5k. I always love hanging out with Mom, and miss our adventures together. I’m sad that Dad can’t come this trip, but I know Mom and I will have a great time having a girls weekend. 30 days until I visit my Kristen and Thayne and my kitty niece and kitty nephew and new adopted sister Kritta in Wisconsin. A couple months ago, I got an email from Southwest Airlines, with a “Wanna Get Away?” special, and I did want to get away, so I booked a plane ticket for a long weekend in Wisconsin. The weekend I picked just happens to be the same weekend as the Lakefront Marathon, which my twitter buddy Kritta is running. 70 days until VEGAS, BABY! Mom, Kristen, and I are running the Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas 5k and Half Marathon this November! Mom and Kristen have never been to Las Vegas, and I’ve only been once, for a work trip, so I’m super excited to explore Vegas and run some Rock ‘n’ Roll races! We signed up for the half marathon about 10 months ago, exactly one year before the race will take place. This countdown has been a long one, but I have a feeling that November will be here before we know it!
Of course, I have lots of countdowns, but these three are really exciting to me now, because I get to do fun things with my family. I’m also looking forward to getting a new iPhone later this month, going home for Thanksgiving and Christmas, and the KC Half Marathon, to name a few. Let me know what your countdowns are!
