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 Next Chapter

Skydive, leap of faith,

Goodbye June, it was... well, there are no words to describe it.

A leap of faith
A fresh start
A new career
A moment of pride
A sense of achievement
A new me

It's been hard to find words to write on here so I've concentrated my energies on frivolous distractions which has taken me to a new online adventure and I've been focusing on the path for my new business and career. I believe the radio quiz will be making a second series appearance soon too.  

June has been the end of one chapter and the beginning of another.  Everything points towards me to dancing to the beat of my own drum, which has always worked for me in the past.  So, in the words of Chad Jackson:
Peace, unity, love and having fun
Let's groove on 'cause it's time to move on
Hear the drummer get wicked!
