50 Awesome things I did before I was over 40.

While in a particularly pensive mood, and as I near my 40th birthday, I wondered about setting myself a challenge, of things to do before I hit 40.

This then got me thinking about all the things I've already done, which seem to appear on other bucket lists, which I can now retrospectively tick off without really trying.

A few of the posts on this blog (from way way back) relate to some of these, but I'm not going to go over old ground, but instead, further document my happy life and relive some of these memories in blog form. this will hopefully also pave the way for more to be added as they happen.

I'm not going for any particular order here, but one which has been well documented here is

1 - Run a Marathon

(this documents my 5th marathon, and I've taken the number of completions up to 13 since then, but still the sub 4 hour time eludes me.)

The rest of the list I put together covers another 29 items, which I'm going to use as the starting point for some more blog posts. for some of them, the real story is a lot more than the headline, a few sort of merge together, and I've already given a detailed account for:

2 - Go Whale Watching


3 - Walk on a Glacier

These both go to the same post, about our first trip to Iceland.

The rest have not been suitably covered as far as I can tell, so I'll tell you about them later.
