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 4

The Big Cheese had a bit of a hiatus last week (nothing at all to do with scheduling hiccups... oh no) but it gave me plenty of time to write some more questions for the team to answer at the next recording.

The Big Cheese is recorded exclusively for Preston FM.  You can listen live by tuning in to 103.2FM in the Preston area or via TuneIn   But, just in case you were busy on Monday, here's the MixCloud upload for you to listen to.  I hope you enjoy it.

Don't forget, you can keep up with the show on Facebook or follow the live tweets on Twitter by searching for #BigCheeseQuiz.
