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

Photo Canvas by Marler Haley

With over 65 years of experience, Marler Haley have been helping businesses to catch people’s attention through displays for years. Founded during the baby boom of 1946 by two entrepreneurial spirits, Sid Marler and Jim Haley have created a lasting legacy that is now seen by many as a trusted worldwide supplier of portable displays. Constantly evolving, they continue to expand their product range for a modern market, which now also includes large-format canvas printing.  I adore seeing my favourite pictures on canvas and have a few displayed around the house.
