What’s On Your F**cket List? Fifty Two Shades of Blue-ish

What is a F**cket List? My interpretation? A F**cket List is a fun Bucket List. Maybe your Bucket List is fun, so you already have one.

A F**cket List was created by Karen S. Exkorn, author of Fifty Two Shades of Blue-ish, a Jewish parody of the Fifty Two Shades of Gray series. You can download a chapter from the book at the end of the post.

My F**cket List

I thought this was going to be really easy, but instead I spent my time wondering whether each item I thought should go on my F**cket List was really fun. Or is it just stupid? That’s when I decided I really need this F**cket List because I’m analyzing everything way too much.

The item I keep coming back to is running a marathon. Now I know to many that would not be fun which is why I struggled putting it down. But for me, it’s something that I want to do so bad, but I’ve been afraid to even consider it.

Last year, I decided I was going to run a half marathon and told myself I’ll never run a marathon. I trained really hard all summer and then completed the Rock ‘n Roll Virginia Beach Half Marathon.

I am so proud of that medal, but I’ve felt compelled to do more, but afraid to say it out loud. So, this is me…now declaring that I want to run a full marathon by the end of 2013. Why? Just because I know I can.

Finished a 20k
Closer and closer to finishing running my first half marathon at 20k now.

  1. Well, I’m not going to admit why I clicked on this posts’ title :)
    But, wow, I love the concept of the F**ket List. My current aspiration is developing an habitual meditation practise. Maybe not as energetic as running a marathon which is really admirable, Michele. It just something I want to do and I now find it both fun as well as calming.

    I’m keeping the topic of F**ket List on my proposed blog list for my own :)

  2. Hi Michelle.
    Go for it, I did a marathon last summer while I was training to do triathlons. I didn’t really train for it I just upped the distance on my run sessions to about 12 miles which I know is way short. But I really wanted to do one and thought I would just go for it.
    So glad I did the most enjoyable and painful run I have ever had and the elation when you get to the end and realise you have done it is sheer heaven.

    So go for it lee

    • Thanks for the encouragement. I’m currently signed up for 3 half marathons this year and I’m going to do one more. Then my 2014 goal will be a full. I have to spread them out. The only way I keep running is when I have something to run for. Otherwise I have too many excuses as to why I can’t run. Congrats on your marathon & triathlons. Triathlons don’t interest me. I hate biking.
