40 for 40

My friend Libby celebrated a significant birthday this year. In preparation for it, she spent a year doing a number of things that celebrated her milestone birthday. In May 2010 I will enter my 40th year (i.e. I will turn 39) and in honor of that, I plan on doing 40 things before I turn 40 in May 2011. Here is the first half of my list:

  1. Bake a pie.
  2. Compete in a Crossfit event.
  3. Fly a kite.
  4. Get a massage.
  5. Get another tattoo.
  6. Go to a movie at a drive-in theater.
  7. Go to the top of Mount Washington.
  8. Kayak on the Charles River.
  9. Knit a pair of socks.
  10. Read 52 books.
  11. Ride a rollercoaster.
  12. Run 5K.
  13. Save $20 for each item on this list I complete. Donate the money.
  14. Send 40 postcards to 40 different people.
  15. Snowshoe in the Blue Hills.
  16. Swim in the Damariscotta River.
  17. Travel to one of the states I’ve never been to before (Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho, Kansas, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Carolina, Utah, Virginia, Wyoming)
  18. Try snowboarding.
  19. Volunteer 4 times at Waltham Fields Community Farm.
  20. Watch a meteor shower.

What else should I do? I want to make sure I can achieve all of the things I set out to accomplish.
