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

Unusual Image on Google Maps

So I was having a quick glance at Google Maps, trying to work out a route between the train station and a venue and noticed something a little odd on the map.  I've taken a couple of screenshots for you:



MAJOR GEEK MOMENT!!



It's an aircraft flying quite low over London.  I was quite excited because I hadn't seen this one logged on any of the websites that provide links to the weird and wonderful images caught by satellites or another form of aerial photography.  Seeing the Red Arrows lined up at Blackpool Airport or John Travolta's plane on his driveway always makes me smile.  I know, I know...



EDIT:  It appears it has been in the news earlier this year.  It was Picture of the Day in the Telegraph back in February.  I'm still quite excited about *my* first "find" though.
