NaBloPoMo_November_blogroll_large

 

I was actually worrying about what on earth I was going to write today, what could I blog about, especially as I have spent the day at home with the kids & not done any exercise or running, and those are the primary topics of my blog. (Plus a little ranting too)

But never fear, Facebook has saved me.

About 2 years ago, I completed my 1st marathon (read about that here if you like > Liverpool Marathon ) then last year I tried my 2nd, the Preston Guild Marathon, and failed at mile 21 (I don’t think I’ve blogged that, perhaps I’ll do that for tomorrows NaBloPoMo.)

The Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon brand is coming to Liverpool this May, and it turns out one of my Facebook friends is running it. To quote the BBC News article about the marathon;

Rock ‘n’ Roll Liverpool - May 25, 2014

The concept will see over 20 bands perform along the route and a concert at the end of the race.

This year’s marathon in the city was cancelled after organisers could not agree a suitable route.

Rock ‘n’ Roll Liverpool Marathon will take place on 25 May, with a half marathon also taking part on the day.

Although the route has yet to be finalised, it is expected to start and end on the city’s waterfront and take in some of the most famous landmarks.

The route will be announced this week, and if it doesn’t do the horrible, horrible circuits around Sefton Park like the last Liverpool Marathon did, I might join in.

 

The other thing I’ve been doing this evening is watching the live feed of The World Beard and Moustache Championships. This gent in the picture is Nik, he’s from Exeter, and the company we work for (Lush) have helped him go out & compete.

I’ve been watching the live feed for most of the evening whilst knitting, and it’s actually one of the most bizarrely interesting things I have watched in a long time! There was even a Historical Dancing group and a marching band as part of the intermission entertainment.

I’ve posted a few photos to my twitter stream, there are some crazy beards out there. Serious time and effort to their upkeep. It’s been a weird evening.

Hows yours been?!
