I believe in Living Life to the Full and one way I do that is by having a list of things to do before I die.

Some things are fairly regular and some are rather unusual… but to me, they all help fill that ‘unforgiving minute with 60 seconds worth of distance run’.

Live Life to the Full.

I believe in Living Life to the Full. I have done over 110 ‘things’ that I most wanted to do before I die and I’m nowhere near being dead!

They help me to breathe and feel alive and know that when I am drawing my last breath, it will be with no regrets.

Live Life to the Full.
