Sports Bucket List
Do a half triathlon
You still have to swim, then bike, then run, but you just do half of each of them. It doesn’t sound much easier though – you still have to cycle 56 miles, swim 1.2 miles and run 13 miles. If you can finish that in less than a week, we salute you.
Run a marathon in all 50 states of the US
A great way to see the parts of each state that you wouldn’t normally visit, running through all fifty states will take you across 1,300 miles of the US. This will probably take a few years to complete, but once you get started you’ll want to get to that magic number.
Learn to Ice skate backward
We recommend mastering ice skating forwards first, but once you’re comfortable on the ice, going backwards actually isn’t that hard and you can skate along as normal.
Make a hole-in-one in golf
From tee-off to the hole, being able to belt a golf-ball Happy Gilmore-style hundreds of yards across the green is a feat in itself, let alone aiming it. Maybe give this one a practice at mini-golf before taking on the regular-sized course.
Attend an MLB game
Major League Baseball is the premier baseball competition in the US and Canada, and the oldest of the four major professional sports leagues in the US. Think of the music, the hot dogs, the beer… the sport as well, if you’re into that. If you’ve ever wanted to go to a baseball game, this is the place to be.
Coach a children's sports team
Bowl a perfect 300 game in bowling
Otherwise known as the perfect game, you have to bowl a strike every single time. In order to be recognized you have to bowl it during a tournament or league – but even doing it on your own is an amazing achievement. Just be sure to take a picture of the scoreboard so that people actually believe you.
Compete in a Dogsled Race
Six gorgeous huskies dragging you across the snowy slopes is quite the experience. Sled dog races occur mostly in the Arctic regions of the US, Canada, Russia, and Greenland, so it’s something you may have to travel for. Beautiful way to see the countryside, though.
