Labor Day has passed us by, so I suppose I should concede that summer is on it’s way out… It doesn’t officially end until September 22, but I figure it’s time for me to reflect upon my summer bucket list and see how I did. Here we go!
Done! I left him a note on a Sunday and came back to see what he had to say a few days later.
I asked him what the secret is to becoming a faster runner like him. He told me below…
The secret to speed is to be a maniac! Good to know. I’ll get right on that.
2. Take an outdoor yoga class with the Yoga Garage
I also fit in another one of Emily’s (of Luminous Yoga) regular classes last Tuesday. It was lovely! Tonight is your last chance for outdoor yoga with The Yoga Garage on Isles (Wednesday at 6:30 pm).
I think I get bonus points as we also made it to Sandcastle on Lake Nokomis this summer (Doug Flicker’s joint). We had never been here before and stopped by for lunch after checking out the Wiener Dog races on Labor Day weekend.
15. Lawn bowling at Brit’s Pub
Fail…This just never happened. Next year!
16. Go to the Mill City Farmer’s Market
FYI, you can now bring your dog to the Linden Hills Farmer’s Market, which is new from last summer. Our neighbor’s food truck, Hot Indian, often makes an appearance there. If you haven’t tried this food truck, you should!
17. Have an ice cream date at Sebastian Joe’s
20. Run a trail race
21. See the Lake Creature!
We headed here after the City of Lakes half marathon for a quick lemonade and a puppy dog tail (to celebrate Dustin’s sub-1:30 PR!) Sugar overload….Dustin went with the big cinnamon roll and the unlimited frosting, I did a puppy dog tail.
Well, there you have it- my reflection on my summer bucket list!
I think I did pretty well, but there were some things I didn’t fit in that I really wish I would have. I suppose there’s always next summer. Stay tuned for my fall bucket list, coming soon!
**As summer comes to a close, did you squeeze in everything you had hoped to? Please share in the comments!
Please share any fall or winter bucket list items that you think I should add to my upcoming list!
