What do you want to do before you die?

Watched the show "The Buried Life" on MTV ealier toady and kinda made me think about some of the things I want to complete o accomplish before I die. (The show is about a group of guys with a list of 100 things to do before they die and for everything they do they help another person)

Few things I want to do;
Run a marathon in under 3hr 30minutes
Run an Ultramarathon before I turn 24
Open a crossfit affiliate
Visit Australia

Re: What do you want to do before you die?

Sail around the world, and I'm already working toward the goal. I bought a 'starter sailboat' last year (26' Pearson Sloop), and after I get good at sailing that and do some short jaunts for a few years (a week or less being short, I've only done day sails so far), I'm going to upgrade to a 42' Ketch right before I retire, and be ready to go.

Re: What do you want to do before you die?

Make enough money that my kids don't have to worry about it.
Hm, perhaps that's a little narrow. Lay enough foundations that my kids won't have to worry about it.

Re: What do you want to do before you die?

I'd like to:

- Visit every continent (I'm 28 and have never left the country except to Canada, which doesn't even count when I grew up an hour from the border)
- Have a kid
- Teach said kid to be a good person and respect others (I can imagine this will be the toughest)
- Send my kids to college and pay for it myself (unlike my experience)
- Open and successfully run my own business (CF affiliate could happen)
- Run, or plod through, a marathon barefoot
- Live to be at least 80 (my sci-fi fantasies hope for 150 with advents in technology ha!), since this feat is apparently lost in my family tree
