Liverpool Spring 5K – Race Report

Liverpool Springs oh how excited we were for you! We had arrived the day before to our amazing AirBnB which we WILL be staying in again hopefully for next year! Especially if we do the Liverpool Springs again!

The night before I got all my stuff together. I had managed to persuade my sisters once again that we needed to dress up, and especially so as it was the 4th of May, you can kinda guess what theme we went with……….May the 4th be with you lol. I found the t shirt on eBay and new instantly it would go with out Tikiboo pants.

We got to the event kind of early because our Airbnb was literally just around the corner, which turned out great. We got a couple of photo’s taken with the local radio station and a lovely one of us all together.

There wasn’t anything to do at the start point apart from just hover in the sun, though we did pretend to be kids and get glitter put on us.

Obviously required selfie before we set off!

The course itself was actually really good, all set with Sefton Park which made it great, it also had a couple of hills which I wasn’t prepared for!

I felt the run itself we by very fast, I don’t know why but as soon as I was on that start line I was telling myself that I was going to PB. I tried to talk myself out of it as well this was my first “official” 5K, even though I had done countless 5K’s in training and Park Runs. Even more so because the day after I would be doing my second 10K and wanted a PB. Nothing worked and I ended up just going for it!

I’m still amazed that I PB’ed the course, I cannot even get my head around it. My goal for 2019 was to get my 5K time to below 35 minutes and I smashed that by doing a time of 32.54!!!

I loved this course and would recommend it for anyone.
