OJ Came down with a cold and chesty cough 48 hours before - did the race anyway, but perhaps should have adjusted my pace even further.

Did first 6 miles bang on pace (using pace band and within 10-20 secs at all mile markers, which I thought was good going considering it was a huge and congested race and I was still passing fun runners at mile 4) but then started to struggle from 7 on.

Not helped, I have to say by needing to make an unscheduled wee stop thanks to toilet chaos at the start. Scraped in under the hour after a dire final 3 feeling quite yuck with some odd symptoms like stitch which I've never had before - walked whilst taking on water and had a short walk to blow nose and recoup about every mile between 10-13. Sprinted the last 200 yards as there was no way I was going over the 2 hours, cold or no!

Support was brilliant, lots of people out at the Arena end and around Sefton Park/the prom. Particularly club mates. Top support. Penny Lane Striders 1:41:24 1:53:03 1:54:00 1:59:37 55.05

Philippe Flop Got to the start late due to roadworks. This meant we were well back at the start - nearly 12 mins gone when we went through the start. Plus felt there were too many so made it very difficult to get going. Unaffiliated 1:43:36 1:50:56 1:50:56 57.24

running26 With no real training due to injury I am very pleased with the time and possibly could have gone a little faster but expected to tire at 10miles which didn't happen. Unaffiliated 1:42:10 1:52:38 1:43:30 1:52:38 56.86
RunSub Quiet a grey day, very little wind and from the East meant the final 4 miles wouldn't have extra suffering. Difficult to get to a sensible start point but once in front of the 1:30 the crowd thinned.
Just tried to stay on 1:24:59 target pace for first 3 miles getting about 300 ft up on my VP. Hills in the park causing more impact than I expected. By the time I hit the Mersey I was .15mile ahead and knew I might get a 1:23.xx if I could run the last 5km fast. Mile 10-11 was good, mile 11-12 was standard pace, but will a mile to go the central governor pushed hard. Once close enough to see the clock I realised I was going to make a 1:23.xx. The Race time stopped at 1:23:41.

Whoever Perfect morning - cool and calm, just a bit early at 09:30 start for the day the clocks changed ! Had a tricky start - too far back and was a big crush for first couple of km - big steps and little steps. Once through that stayed steady for first 10km (41:22) then started putting in a consistent 4min/km rate for remainder of race (10miles at 65:50). Very pleased with energy remaining at 10 miles and ended up with second PB at HM this year !  Race was well organised, well marshalled, great event with 7500 runners.  Key is how windy it is - was calm this year for final 4 miles along the seafront - bliss compared to 2010 :-)
