I always count on the fact I'm quite little so no one notices anyway!

LB & Jay Snizzel - real shame you guys are unable to participate this year  Still only 365 days later and 2012 Mersey will be upon us !!

I will be easy to recognise - fat / middle aged / red faced & knackered - only thing that gets me over the finish line is the promise of food in the goody bags !!

Did the Mueller 10km last weekend with a fantastic personal worst   Mind has been elsewhere ie sorting out my first house therefore lack of training.  Mind you it was really really good fun as my boyfriend who normally runs 44mins stuck with me this time and everytime I wanted to stop, he gave me a firemans lift up the hilly bits.  We still even managed to finish 55 places infront of the two guys tied together trying to do a three legged race.  I'm now 9mins slower than last year   Hope I do a bit better at this one cause enjoyed it last year

Funniest thing though was the comments I got and the shock horror on peoples faces when I was being carried lol

Nutty - don't worry about the time. You know this is a good race, so just relax and enjoy it and you will probably do better anyway.

Shrek - I refuse to be middle aged. I don't know where the end is so that means I can't know where the middle is, therefore I am just young all the time. Simples.

How to recognise LB

14/05/2010 at 14:06
I don't recognize her without the red shirt.

I won't be wearing my red shirt!

I will wear something completely inappropriate and uncomfortable, as is in keeping with my high maintenance reputation!

LB - My age is a well kept secret - even I can't remember and have to ask her indoors ! Fast approaching 40 !!!! Ahh.......

JPenno - If LB looks that good - I will be first to the finish line - love "d" the muppets

Nutty1976 - I did the Muller too ! What were the hilly bits ? Just some gentle hills near the start but I found it fairly flat other than that - good run & great that youre boyfreind helped you on a bit. Well done for lasting it out & finishing in a respectable place - I cheered the 3 legged ones on at the end but what a day - great carnival atmosphere - shame I just couldnt face the hogroast after the run

lfc - good attitude to middle aged - for me it was crisis number 1 at around 34 - I am in need of another crisis now

LB - by the way - don't think the photo worked - unable to open / view it ?

Sorry to be a pain Alan but i can't do this now. I've signed up but my hubby surprised me yesterday with a trip to Prague for the bank holiday weekend.

Is it possible to defer my entry till next year??

Standing in a nothing but a paper thong in front of a screen while some 18 year old with a fabulous body sprays an airgun at you is quite an ordeal though....

LOL LB I know exactly what you mean  Then you walk round for 3 hours trying not to smudge the tan!

Poo!  It was a good photo too....

AGT - I would LOVE a surprise trip to Prague! There are no deferrals sadly, but who cares when you're going away?

LB - the photo worked for me and I agree, it was good.

Shrek - now that I've past 40 I don't really have any crisis with age. They say everyone gets older, but also their is an exception to every rule. I intend to be the exception.

Over 40's are culled from my Facebook!

I can't be seen to be associating with pensioners....

I thought runners were the exception.
15/05/2010 at 13:19

Thanks LB. I knew there were no refunds but wasn't sure re deferrals. I will console myself with a nice pint of Czech beer

Hope the weather is lovely for you all whether running or spectating.

Have one for me AGT!

And runners are the exception LFC.....

15/05/2010 at 14:48
No refunds. No deferralsI'm afraid. I know there are genuine cases but if we accept either then everyone wants to opt out near race date. Difficult to identify genuine cases from those who simply want their money back or can't be bothered running on race day!
