#167 Write a Press Release

When I first started penning my neverendinglist, it’s fair to say that I never imagined I’d need to write a Press Release promoting my exploits. The List, as I often point out is the ‘Script for Life’ documenting my ‘Journey of Happiness’ (happiness is a journey and not a destination by the way!). This journey has in turn turned into an adventure and after...

#48 Plant a tree

Recently I trudged across a field with boys in tow. Our destination was a little shoot of horse chestnut sprouting out of the ground and fenced rather grandly in the corner of a field at the foothills of the Clwydian Range. I’ve talked about ‘significant insignificance’ before at the neverendinglist and I guess this little shoot at first sight could fall into the latter of that...

#66 Win an award

  So it appears that the neverendinglist is up for an award. And not just any award! The UK Blog Awards have shortlisted my little ‘Script for Life’ in the ‘Most Innovative Blog’ category for 2014 and I’m chuffed diddly chuffed chuffed! I’ve never won an award and aside from a collection of swimming badges and some running medals, the trophy cabinet is a...

#286 Run a sub 3:30 marathon

There are a number of running challenges prevalent here on the list, some of which I’ve been a bit slow to start chalking off! I’ve always run for fun and never given too much thought, or for that matter applied any structure to the running I’ve done. The normal training plan generally involves entering a race (normally after being challenged to do so) and then simply cramming...

#312 Learn to Sail

Just over 5 years ago I was adrift amid some stormy waters as life was thrown on its head. Now the dust has long since settled, but in reflecting on the turbulent times one of the things which helped to offer some clarity in amongst the storm clouds was undoubtedly the time spent sailing out at sea. Whilst sporadic in nature, these little jaunts have provided thinking time along the way; a...

#9 Own a Football Club

On Sunday I will be Wembley bound for a second time in as many months to cheer on the mighty Wrexham as we contest the Conference Playoff Final with Welsh counterparts Newport County. The prize is not a World Cup, a Champions League, or even another FA Trophy, but for Wrexham it would be a significant reward and rightful return to League football. Regardless of the result on Sunday afternoon as...

:: Apples from Tajikistan

A year ago I helped to buy a cow for a man in Tajikistan. It was a man who I knew very little about at the time and in all honesty I never expected to get the money back, however my initial faith was repaid in full as was my Kiva loan, both on time and as promised. I’ve been needing to get the blog back in motion for a while and despite some significant moments since my last post back in...

#79 Sing an anthem

Last week I stood among the masses at a Muse gig in Manchester as they belted out some of their anthems. Whilst not a Muse fan per se, I was there to accompany a friend who has stood next to me over the years and I loved every minute of it. Tomorrow I will sing a different anthem after spending the last couple of weeks educating my boys with some Welsh words of significance. The Welsh National...

:: Personal Best

If someone had said to me 5 years ago that one day I would entering the Olympic Stadium in Amsterdam to the cheers of the crowd on the way to setting a new record for the marathon, I’d have been inclined to think of them as a little crazy! Amazingly though this is what actually happened last Sunday. I wasn’t winning the race and it wasn’t a new course record I was setting as I...

:: I am One

Over the the last year the neverendinglist has become the first chapter in my own story. It started as a silly little blog, an outlet for some of the dreams in life that we talk about, but quickly forget as daily responsibilities stop us in our tracks, or procrastination prohibits us from acting upon our appetite for adventures. So as I celebrate the passing of the first year on the theoretical...
