His list includes; Take part in an Adventure Race, Milk a cow/goat, Do a winter sport, Shoot a real gun, Walk coast-to-coast, Get a spray tan, Climb a mountain, Lose 1/2 stone, Run a 5k race, Get a tattoo etc.
This got me thinking. It is far too late for me to do the same age related challenge, also doing ‘55 things at 55’, sounds like far too many things to do! However I have had an idea. My wife is 40 in the middle of next year, so we are going to do a ‘40 B4 40’ Challenge. As with most of my ideas she is not keen, however I plan to drag her along to see if she eventually enjoys it. When considering what 40 challenges we would do, I soon dismissed anything that involved adrenaline or effort.
It is going to be tough, and many will admire how we are facing such adversity, but hey, life is all about meeting challenges. Fortunately Food Week should help notch a number off of the list. As you may expect, as we eat our way through our challenge you will be able to follow our culinary adventure on these pages!
