I'm not keen on the escalators at Moorfields either Doberman.... They always make me feel dizzy.....
Did anyone clock the two elderly couples who were fully decked out in proper walking gear, including hiking boots? I know there's a steep incline coming out of the tunnel, but it's not that steep! Upon seeing them, I heard somebody who I was stood with at the start ask "They do have roads on the Wirral, don't they?"
Another great RunLiverpool event - it's obvious that Alan listened to the criticisms of past runs by making the finish area more secure, so hopefully everyone managed to get a t-shirt and medal.
That incline back out of the tunnel is still a real killer for me, but I really enjoyed today and the wind wasn't as bad as I expected, even though I was well outside my best time for 10K. It was a nice surprise also that I could travel down from Ormskirk on the train without paying.
And a big big thankyou to Yvonne again for sorting out my entry so efficiently - it was much appreciated and let me concentrate on getting ready for the run, without any stress.
I picked up a pair of wraparound shades from a local Sainsbury's last summer for around £15 and they've done the job more than adequately. As long as they have UV protection I'm not really bothered what make they are, as long as they're a decent fit and stay in place while I'm running.
