Dirty Thirty Update...

In honor of Throwback Thursday, I'm going to throw it back to January 2013 when I shared my plan to accept and embrace my Dirty Thirty with y'all! 
Let's play a little catch up for those of you who are new(er) around here!
So here is the deal, I'm going to list out 30 things, items, tasks, adventures, goals, targets - whatever you want to call them - that I want to accomplish in my 30th year here on this great place we call Earth! Awesome right, and so not overdone...HP! My items will be anything from fitness or cosmetic improvements, foods I've never tried, places I want to go, people I want to see/meet, things I want to have the balls to wear in public - pretty much whatever! I'll keep track and update as each item is scheduled and completed! Boo-ya! Sounds amazeballs, right?! I'll admit, I just thought of this concept this morning (like 10 minutes ago), so I might not list all 30 right here and now because I don't want them to be lame, ordinary and/or expected goals!
Below are updates, progress reports if you will, on all Dirty Thirty items!  You're Welcome!

one Run 3 10k Races - One down!  Two to go...

Groundhog Run 10k - January 2013
two Run a Half Marathon - I am officially registered for the Route 66 Half in November, but with the whole hip/IT Band/knee injury I'm already considered dropping to the 5k option for this one!  I've just now gotten back to 2-3 mile interval walk/runs.  I have until the 1/25/14 to accomplish this one though so I hopefully will still be able to get this done!
Route 66 Half Marathon - November 2013
three Get New Boobies - Mission Accomplished! You can find out all about the process from beginning to end here, here, here and here !!  As a final update - I love them!  Couldn't be happier with the results!

  3. Excited that I will be a part of one of your Dirty Thirty items!

  4. You are doing great!! The other night I was talking about something I read or saw on your instagram and my husb ask me when I was finished "Who is Darci?" It was funny, even though I have never met you, and we don't talk that much (We should change that) it seems like you get to know so many people on instagram and reading their blogs.

    Geez as I read that it seems as though I sound like a creeper! I am not I promise :)

  5. You've done an awesome job on lots of your goals already! I hope you continue to have fun accomplishing the rest.

  6. I love the list....I think I need to make a list!!

  7. I didn't realize the Tough Mudder was next weekend, maybe I'll come out to cheer you on!

  8. I signed up for the half in November too. It looks like I might be walking because of my knee. Womp Womp!
