After the long walking and never finding an end to the shops and the town we decided that for today we would get the train into town and see how much further we could go. Initially the plan was to hop on the Sightseeing bus, but after a phone call we found out that there is a 10K run and the buses would not be running till 2:30pm. So we opted for the train, as it was only 1 stop, 2 mins and cost Β£2.50 for both of us (who can complain). Despite getting the train and not walking in, we still did just as much walking as the day before!!

We had a plan, to leave the hotel around 9:30, get into town, have a little walk around and then go to the cinema to see ‘The Mummy’ (we see a new film pretty much every week!!). We booked the film in advance so we knew we would need to get to the cinema for about 11am. When we went and got the train, we got off at Glasgow Queen Street station and walked around the corner, to which we discovered what was both the half way point and the finish line for the 10K run. The 10K was a mens race, and is for male suicide, it is held every year and can be entered online.Β It was great to stand and cheering people on at the half way line and then about 10 mins later the first people were crossing the finish line – some of them didn’t even look like they had just ran 10k, I was proud of the people passing the 5k mark because I don’t think I would be able to do that!
