Can anyone help? Coming from out of town, what is the best thing to do with regards to my partner dropping off / picking up? Parking etc? Any help would br very appreciated
Mark - Last year there was a free travel arrangment on the Liverpool "tube" which was a great idea for the runners - probarbly a bit smelly for any othe rpoor sods but hey ho !! They could either park in the City centre or my preference would be for them to be in New Brighton at the finnish - very nice place and lots to do as so many finnish lines are boring for spectators until they see their loved ones. I'm sure Alan will offer you some advise on this one being a local lad. I have about a 2 hour travel time to Liverpool so dont know it too well.
What a brilliant day to run today - not used to actually getting hot when running outside - only 2 weeks ago I was so cold my hands were frozen solid for hours after I returned from a 10 miler and now the sun is shining and the paths are full or runners and ..... Dogs .... Ahhh !!!
Went out to do 5 miles as I have a half next weekned and am tapering a little but ended up doing 8.5 miles - it was too nice I had to keep on going - plus I was following some nice young ladies - it always helps

Mark - the start is in Pall Mall, city centre and the finish is in New Brighton. If your pick up doesn't know the area you may have trouble getting to the finish as you have to go through the tunnel by car!! You get free transportation back to the start courtesy of Mersey Rail.

Thank you to all for your help and advice.
I have only been running for 4 months after 20+ years of smoking so can't wait.
just got in from a 10k run,in training for next weeks lverpool half marathon.
had a really good one. hoping to do 2 hours 10
int running great!!!!!!!
Good luck to everyone running over the weekend - the weather ain't great here and I've got my first half in Ironbridge on Sunday ! Typical Brittish weather - still putting that aside I can't wait for tomorrow.
Mark - good choice to get off the cancer sticks - apparantly they are going up to £7 a pack soon !!
Just think what else thta money could go towards - ......
Evening everyone, ran my first half of 2010 this morning in Ironbridge / Telford - great race and got a PB ! Given the rain yesterday which turned most of the route into mud I hadn't really banked on a PB so I am very happy. Time 2hrs 20 mins which beat my previous time by 2 mins.
Not up to some of yours standards but I am a 16 stone fella and it was a very hilly route. Mile 7 to 11 was a serious incline and I have a lot of me to get up thise hills !!
Got home and my 2 lovely daughters and the misses had baked a chocolate cake for me - how sweet (I cried a bit !) Well when youre exhausted your emotions are all over the place
Anyone else been out over the weekend ?
I did 10 miles this morning round the Wirral Peninsula, baking hot sun. I've got sun burn on my face.
Well done Shrek good running
Yout run sounds nice - we are land locked here so no sea but we do have the River Severn which is nice - something about seeing the sea - It's the start of Summer for me.
Don't forget to put your clocks forward at 1 am Sunday morning
Summe rtime is here at last
