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  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 new a career path or additional income stre

Think Outside The Box - The Question

Stormy Weather
You are driving along the road and the rain is beating down.  Your windscreen wipers are struggling to swish the rain away from the window but the journey is just about manageable.  As you are nearing the edge of town you pass a bus shelter with three people waiting:
  • The perfect partner of your dreams
  • An old lady who looks extremely ill
  • A friend who once saved your life

You only have room for one passenger in your car so who do you give a lift to?

You can answer this moral dilemma in the comments and come back tomorrow to find out the answer.
