Runny but tasty, and a bit bland. Needs dill or cayenne or something sprightly. A little anchovy paste would make it Ceasaresque. Fresh savory would be good too. A lot of the runnyness is from *over* blending - stop at the somewhat chunky Gaspacho stage and resist the temptation to hit the liquify button, otherwise you have... By golly, you have liquid cucumbers!
'Sweat' the cucumbers - peel, slice in half _lengthwise_, core, and cut halves into 1" crescents. Toss with a little salt and let pieces sweat in a collandar for a minimum 1 hr. Shake off the sweat (do not rinse, it's not salty any more) and queeze out whatever more water you can. Blend this and it will not be runny.
