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

There's a little tool on the interwebs that should be used with caution. It can cause an eyebrow to be raised and even a little upset if you are of a delicate nature. However, if you are genuinely interested in finding out if one person follows another on Twitter then have a look at "Does Follow".

Anyway... you have to wonder why Barack Obama doesn't follow Stephen Fry especially as Stephen Fry follows Barack Obama? I mean, Mr O even follows ME (I am one of the chosen few 642,900 he is following and we all know he's getting value for money here). 

Awkward!! 

Barack Obama, Stephen Fry, Twitter.
