30 Things to do Before I’m 30

Yesterday I turned 29.

I’m not really the type of person who focuses on birthdays or ages, but I thought it would be fun, and productive, to create a 30 Things to do Before I’m 30 list. It’s a list of all of the things I want to have accomplished before I’m 30.

30 Things to do Before I'm 30

I’m not a particularly adventurous person… I don’t need to travel the world, or even travel outside Canada. Most of my goals are fitness and health related. I want to be a better, smarter, and healthier person by the time my next birthday rolls around and I want to have documented it in a Smashbook too. Most of these goals have been on the back burner for a long time so I want to buckle down and get them completed.


  1. Go tubing.
  2. Go kayaking.
  3. Swim in a waterfall.
  4. Go paddleboard.
  5. Go geocaching.
  6. Run a 5k.
  7. Run a 10k.
  8. Train for a half-marathon.
  9. Run a 5k in under 30 minutes.
  10. Run a 10k in under 60 minutes.
  11. Paint Pottery at the Clay Cafe in Miramichi.
  12. Get my beginners.

  28. Buy more products directly from farmers.
  29. Create a Smashbook for things I do in my 29th year.
  30. Make 29 my healthiest year so far.

  1. Ohhh If you have a TJ Maxx near by PLEASE check there for your MK Bag! They have great deals on them! That is where we got mine and my daughters! If not for the low prices at TJ Maxx we never would have been able to afford them. I am in NO way affiliated with TJ Maxx I just love them 🙂 Great list! Loved this post. I know you will reach all of your goals xox

  2. You go girl! You can do them all. Then next year go for far more. I aimed for 1 thing when I was 20 and now my goals list is over 50 items long to start each year and I do just about everything on the list. This year I turned 70 and had 85 things to start the year and have 29 done and we’re not at the end of March…that included kayaking on bio-luminescent bay in Vieques, PR. If you are starting at 29 with 30, your life is going to be beyond amazing.
