The Bucket List
Life doesn’t have to be all about work and sleep. So every now and again, I have been known to tick a few things off my bucket list, and here are a few of them.
2012/2013 – Run a Half Marathon
After years of sitting down, it appeared that spending far too long online finally caught up with me. I found myself ballooning to 15 and a half stone and a wedding suit measurement of 38″ waist for my trousers, was enough to make me take drastic action.
I enrolled on the Couch potato to 5k program and went on to complete the Birmingham Half Marathon in 2012 and 2013 whilst also getting back down to the more acceptable 34″ waist trousers.
Three Peaks Challenge Climb Ben Nevis (Scotland) Scarfell (England) and Snowdon (Wales)in 24 hours.
Finally, every writer needs a muse and mine is my beautiful wife, she puts up with my fads and latest crazy ideas whilst also inspiring me to be more creative.
