Look what has arrived!

Look what has arrived!

My number for the Wirral 10km has arrived! All beginning to be a lot more real!

My hopes for the race:

First to complete it

Second not be last

Third if I do complete do so in around 1:20 :)

Fourth to run as much as I can but be realistic

Fifth to enjoy it as much as I can :)

Thank you all, I don't think I would have kept up my running without reading your posts. Knowing others have the same bad days, the same fears and the same joys :)

Happy running :)

Ooh fab. Where's it run? I can't quite read the map, looks coastal (I grew up on the Wirral). At least it should be pretty flat...

Good luck with it :)

It starts in Birkenhead Park, over the 'four' bridges, along Birkenhead Road towards Seacombe Ferry and then along the promenade to New Brighton finishing on Coastal Road :) we have walked it and seems ok.

Thank you :)
