Big M lovely run from Sefton Park to Liverpool then back to Sefton Park for (what seemed like) an infinite number of loops within and around the park - yet another PB Pudsey Pacers RC 1:39:38 1:41:36 1:45:58 57.05

Highland Lad This race seemed to be much better organised this year, no problems at all, apart from a delayed start due to traffic or something like that. It was quite a windy day, but this played to our advantage running up Parliment street as the wind was giving us a push. Found the last 3 or so miles hard especially as we never seemed to be very far away from the finish, a bit of a psychological challange there but managed to complete the course without stopping. Very pleased with my time as set a PB and beat 1hr 40 all in one go. Unaffiliated 1:35:06 1:38:12 1:39:00 1:38:12 59.93
Iron Bry! Not been able to train much for this race so anything around 1.45 would be good.  Surpassed all expectations!  A really great run - started off fast and managed to keep it going. It helped starting near the front so wasn't slowed down by congestion (first 3 miles were more than 2 minutes quicker than GNR). First 6 miles covered in 45.06 then next 6 miles in 45.46 - so didn't slow too much during latter part of race. This suggests I paced it quite well. Finished the last 1.1 miles in 7.43 - which considering I didn't have much energy at the end is quite amazing! 10 mile split was 1.15.25. Overall, a great PB - by almost 4 minutes!

Slowly But Shirley Can't wait for this one - will be the largest scale Half I'll have ever done, so I think the atmosphere should be brilliant!  Here's to an enjoyable race in the 'European City of Culture' next year!

(but I'll make sure I bring plenty of water ... I heard the reports from last year!)

I've just learnt an important lesson about pacing myself properly!  Good course and inspiring sunny weather - I just wasn't in the right mindset on the day for some reason and it helped scupper my PB chances. MK Lakeside Runners 2:03:00 2:03:00 2:07:00 2:06:53 52.84

SpuredonJay 1st race, really enjoyed it, found getting used to running at the begining with other people hard work, but still managed to keep a good pace going.  Loved the hilly bits and wind like a whole in the head.  Recommend this race for anybodies dates in their callendar.

Well done to the organisers and the many people who helped and supported.  Espically the girl that shouted everyone on, going into Liverpool and on the return. Unaffiliated 1:43:27 1:49:01 1:55:00 1:49:01 53.70

Sushi. 1/2 a lung functioning and excessive amounts of snot pouring down my throat and nose to the point of wretching at 10m.
Ended up quite enjoying myself despite this. 2nd time in Liverpool and I'll be back again. FERC 1:50:20 1:55:32 2:04:28 53.33

Tinseltubs FLM training schedule says I should be capable of sub 2.00 hour half. Think I might leave that goal for now and just go for PB.

Ultradunc Was going well and keeping pace and on course for sub 1:40, but legs were tiring at 10 mile perhaps from the wind and that hill at 6 miles and thats where I lost 2 1/2 mins on last 3 miles .
