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 5

Episode five of The Big Cheese was broadcast on Preston FM last night with two new panel members.  See if you can spot who is missing! This also means we are past the halfway point of the series. That in itself is a milestone!  Episode six is 'in the can' but requires editing so that's this week's job earmarked!

We have two more episodes to record in this series.  I may venture into inviting an audience to watch the recording, just to see how it changes the dynamics of the show and how much audience participation we can allow.

Have you ever been to a radio show recording?  Let me know in the comments.

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