Last January I had a knee op. Soon after I joked that I could do the Santa Dash now with my bionic knee.....Last night my Brother in law knocks on the door and presents me with a santa suit, sponsorship form and so on.....For use THIS SUNDAY 6th.

So I have 48 hours or so to prepare for a 5k run in Liverpool...I had to give up hockey a few years ago so I haven't run for ages.

HEEEELLLPPP!!!!

Well I survived LOL. I won't be going to London in 2012. Much as I wanted to take the 50D with me I decided i had enough ballast already. So I used the wife's Olympus point and shoot so appologies for the quality!

1 K in and the roads were red with some blue blemishes :lol:



At the halfway stage I wasn't last!



I even got a free bottle of water at the end!



this was my favourate moment though. This little chap was about 5 floors up a tower block. I could see his eyes bulging from ground level. The thought of 7000 Santas must have had some impact!





Just on a personal note, I know 5k isn't much but this time last year my knee was so bad it would dislocate walking round the shops. I had been forced to give up most of my sports and I haven't run for around 3 years! Getting up and down stairs was always a worry. Having had the surgery in January and now managing to do this I do feel is a little triumph. My knee is solid...Pity about the rest of me :lol:

Big Bravo Zulu to you Brocks.
Loved seeing the Blue Nosed Santa's in blue suits in the newspaper pics. It's a matter of principal, brilliant.
