I'm coming round to a milestone birthday so started to think more about a future wish list (realistic or otherwise).

As a result, my list looks like this, probably in order of difficulty:

1 - Norseman Triathlon;
2 - Marathon - sub 3;
3 - Wimbleball - sub what I did last time;
4 - Own and learn to ride a TT bike; and
5 - Dart 10k swim

Do you have a list and if so what's on it? (I may steal ideas if they are good ones!)

Clearly I am aiming low and haven't put enough thought in- will now google the half of those that I haven't heard of!

First marathon - VLM spot booked

First ironman - will do it the year after the VLM (prob IMUK if i can get a spot)

South Downs Way in an epic short time

After that - who knows but a ride up Mont Ventoux might be a giggle but if I got the chance L'etape du Tour would be top of my list

Yes i turned 40 last year and yes this is a mid life crisis

I'll settle for being able to race again once I'm over my convalescence from my hip implant op. No more IMs, the surgeon says I can't run any more marathons now. And Channel swimming is out since I crewed for the Pirate relay team and was violently seasick for 13 hours! I won't care if I never see the Channel again in this lifetime.

Why only 1 24 year-old?

At the moment I'd settle for my pre-Outlaw fitness.

Ooooh GUCR. Good shout. I'd actually like to run a lot of the County Ways at some point, but may leave that till I retire and walk them...
