A selection of images from Sunday's Wirral Half Marathon and 10K. The weather was pretty awful but there was still a huge turnout of both runners and public. I'm always impressed by the attitude of people around here. Nothing puts them off.
One woman at the end pulled me aside and told me that a friend had died of cancer last year and she was running for her. She said that every time she felt pain along the run she thought of her friend and it kept her going. That's what it's all about.
That's the thing with events like this. The idiots in our community don't get up early on a Sunday to do something fantastic; you're left with only the best of us and it creates a superb atmosphere that's a pleasure to be around.
Well done to everyone that ran.
