Good turnout again for the Thurstaston summer run..judging from comments en route this is a tough but popular run 👍🏃🏃🏃.
So 30 of us took off leaving the country park along the Wirral way towards the dungeons. This was a tricky part as the pathway was a little overgrown with nettles and brambles 🌿🌿but it was an excuse to walk and wriggle past..
Then it was uphill and up steps to the top. ..phew that’s a hard one for the legs!! 💪💪
But of course what goes up has to come down and we followed the paths downhill stopping to take in breathtaking views of Wirral and across to Wales …no boats but horses and cows 🐄🐄🐎🐎..
How no one got lost was down to team work !… Dave and Neil making sure we were all staying together and going the right way 😆 . Once we were back on the Wirral Way it was a straight run back to the visitor centre and ‘picnic time’.
We definitely missed the 🌞 sun as the wind picked up 💨making it feel cold especially after getting warm running🏃🏃.
That didn’t put off the hardcore VRR family having their picnic (although we were freezing).. plenty of sharing of snacks and treats 🍌🍓🍇🍪🍷sorry we couldn’t manage to eat Brian’s cake 🍰 it looked lovely but we were too full!!
Not a late finish tonight …tired legs soon get cold. But hopefully next time at Thurstaston ‘summer’ will join us for our run and picnic 😊
NB the four walkers (and dog!) also enjoyed putting the world to rights on our walk!😉 Anyone not able/wanting to run always welcome to join us! Sharon
