101 in 1001 Update

Since tomorrow is a new month, it's time to give another update on my progress with my 101 in 1001 list.

6. Run in at least eight races I've never run in before - I can now add the Franklin Classic 10K and the Shelby Bottoms Boogie 15K.

45. Give money to people who are fundraising at least 4 times a year - I found two more causes that I decided to support this month.  I'm not in a position to throw a lot of money toward anything right now, but I know every bit counts.

47. Complete at least 50 hours of volunteer work - I've been steadily working toward this one with my involvement at Mercy Ministries.  I may have to revise this one since I'm finding 50 hours too easy.

54. Make contact with local friends I don't see often at least once a month - I've been steadily doing this via phone and internet this whole time, but I actually had coffee this week with a good friend of mine.  He lives 20 minutes away, but we still only manage to see each other every few months.

65. See a Broadway play - Wicked totally counts, but I'd still love to see one ON Broadway.

68. Go to three concerts per year - I saw Matthew Perryman Jones and Dave Barnes at Live on the Green last week!

95. Watch one new movie per month, minimum - I went to see Fame the other day. I also saw Role Models, and Knowing.

96. Read one book per month, minimum - I only managed to read one this month... Something Blue by emily Giffin. Loved it.

There are a lot of other things on the list that are a bit of a work in progress.  For now, I'm feeling pleased with my progress.
