It was my first 10k on Sunday, couldn't have asked for a better challenge to start with. I'd done a few shorter events including the 5 mile trail race on Formby beach a few weeks back but nothing beats being in a field of over 2,000 runners all charging towards the tunnel. Many apologies if I nearly pulled one of the water-bottle helpers down as I grabbed one at the last minute - you were certainly better prepared for it than I was!
Anyhow, I travelled down from Formby station with three people and shared a lift back with them, so many thanks to them and their driver for saving me from having to scrap for a place on the trains back, and also for teaching me a few shortcuts on how to get back from Liverpool myself!
Is anyone from Formby on the forum? And in particular, anyone from Formby who travelled down with me to run the Mersey Tunnel race? I know at least one of you were up for doing a few more races and even creating a new team. PM me if you're on the forum and are still interested.
I can't do the 10K. It clashes with the NB English Half.
There are only so many weekends in a year I suppose....
Alan - I'll be in the shop later! Want anything from Greggs?
Have any of the guys tried out the anti-ageing moisturiser from the goody bag? I now look ten years younger - thanks Alan!

An ice bun! Out between 2.00pm - 3.00pm.
Wish I'd read that earlier. Guess when I showed up? I thought it was a bit quiet!
I DID get a lovely Liverpool T-shirt next door though I thought about getting YOU one but I didn't think you'd appreciate it much!
I'm back from my camping trip in Sunny Wales.
Had a fab time and didn't even argue with the misses !! Lovely weather. nice quiet campsite. Can't wait for the next one now. Mind you - it was a bit windy in the night (oops - all those beans!!
I will be back for more of the tunnel 10K next year but am swapping threads now so it has been nice to hear & meet some of you and only 51 weeks untill next year's run.
