Alex Salerno’s David and Goliath Bucket List

Things Alex wants to do before and after this summer


Alex Salerno


  1. Run a marathon – This is a good one, a 26.2 mile run will prove that someone’s endurance and health is top notch. It might suck during it, but after you will feel on top of the world
  2. Walk across the whole town of East Lyme(the long way) – This is a fun one. I have lived in EL my whole life and know the town like the back of my hand. Why not walk across the whole town for fun.
  3. Eat the spiciest food I can find – I am Irish. I cannot eat anything spicy, sometimes pepperoni is spicy for me. This would be a fear conqueror for me for sure and it would be good for me. 
  4. Cage dive with sharks – Whenever I swim in the ocean, I always am a little worried about sharks. That is for good reason. One shark bite can kill you. So, why not get in a cage and get face to face with one of nature’s most feared predators. 
  5. Make homemade ice cream – Okay, hear me out. This would be a great way to save money. Instead of buying ice cream all the time, get the ingredients and make it. This would save money. 
  6. Go sky diving – Just do it. Why not, falling from the sky can’t be too bad, right?
  7. Eat liver and onions – Whenever in my family when gross food came up, liver and onions was one of those foods. Try something new, try the Shack’s liver and onions. 
  8. Climb to the top of Mt. Rainier – This is one for the future, but I went to Mt. Rainier last summer and it was beautiful. Why not climb to its 14,000 foot peak.
  9. Go for a polar plunge – I want to stay warm, but some people might want to try getting a little cold. So, I could try to get out of my comfort zone. 
  10. Get a motorcycle license – Cause why not, you never know when you will need to ride a motorcycle.
