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

The Big Cheese, Episode 2

The Big Cheese
The Big Cheese, Episode 2 aired last night on Preston FM.  We now have Episodes 3 and 4 "in the can" but I'll keep reminding you to listen in.  I'm already seeing what can be improved on and the team are settling into their roles in the show.  

If you didn't get chance to hear the show then you'll be pleased to hear that I uploaded it to MixCloud for your aural pleasure.  I'd love to hear what you think.

PS.  Don't forget you can catch updates on Facebook and follow the live show tweets on the hashtag #BigCheeseQuiz.
