Things To Do Before I Turn 50

  (also known as my "TA-DA" list as opposed to a "to do" list) It was my 49th birthday a few days ago and this got me thinking. Any birthday that ends with a zero always feels a bit like milestone or a landmark and, when I hit the big "five-o" in 2022, I don't want huge parties or celebrations but I would like to have ticked a few things off my low-effort bucket list.   I see these things as a way to improve my mental and physical health, plus a few slightly off-the-wall experiences that would make for great memories.  Start running again and include the following: Lead a C25K group again  Participate in parkrun EVERY week where possible  < ongoing (now parkrun Run Director too) Visit local landmarks whilst running  Train for a long race - building up from 5k > 10k > 10 miles > half marathon, with a couple of longer trail races mixed in  Lose a lot bit of weight Post more on Instagram or give the blog a bit of a reboot < ongoing Look at
Anagram Game

I've got slightly addicted to this game on Twitter - it's so simple yet such good fun. Pick a famous person and make an anagram from their name - the more it suits them, the better.

Choice submissions so far:

Lamented Person = Peter Mandleson
A Bad Livid Mind = David Miliband
My Urban Hand = Andy Burnham
Dialing Lair Rats = Alistair Darling
Hijack Calm Nose = Michael Jackson
Worn Gyrate = Terry Wogan
A Unwise Homey = Amy Winehouse

so... you get the idea. Join in and post yours on the comments section. If you're going to join the game on Twitter then use the hashtag #anagrams

Thanks to @SirTerence for finding me something to else to procrastinate with.
