Its now 2 days since I completed this race, which took place 13th May 2007 around
Liverpool's beautiful Sefton park. It started at 11am and was a sunny morn considering
the dire forcast for today.I arrived there in good time. The weather was kind to
us during this run and it didn't become overcast until afterwards. Not many costumes
to be seen this year and I didn't wear any either. I had hoped to wear my wings again
but can't find them at the moment. As usual I was full of that warm and fuzzy feeling
you get from helping others. I enjoyed the run and was doing quite well in terms
of getting a personal best time and was grateful for the 2 water stops along the
way lol. I would have knocked 5 minutes of my time but I made a friend in stead.
We met up during the run and carried on running and chatting togther and went for
it together across the finish line. Great stuff! Then I was immediately not too well,
tempted by a massage but think that once I lie down at this point I won't get up
again! Anyway, I'm happy, mission accomplished and there are folks alot worse off.
I must thank my partner for taking all the photo's, he has commented several times
that I don't take a good photo, I think you can see that for yourself. I'm just relieved
his attempt at mpeging me during the warmup failed ;) It took me 1 hour and 26 minutes
to cross the finish line.
Thank you too all my lovely sponsors for supporting me yet again mwaahhhs.
Much appreciated by me Hugsssss..... hope to do it all again next year.....Photo's
of this run are on the next page! Love Sarah xxx
