All the best to those running in Dublin. Hope the injury worries come to nothing and you all run within your targets. Did this race in 2007 and hope to do it again some time.

Kenny I just want to jump in and also convey my appreciation and congrats on the hard work you put in to our sport, well done on the award.

Good luck to the Dublin Marathon runners, I am now jealous of you all as it is such a great event but glad I never had to put in the big mileage you all have done. This is now the anticipation of what is ahead stage, the nerves are starting to kick in but you all know the work is done, the endurance is there, go out enjoy the event, stick to your plan and I look forward to the chat of PB's and race gossip next week.

Also good luck to all the Dublin runners, did the half this year hoping to do Full next year, wishing I had tried this year!

Well deserved Kenneth - nice to see you getting some acknowledgement for all those unpaid hours of effort that the sport depends on!

Good luck to all the Dubliners for Monday - looking forward to reading all about the trials & tribulations on the day!

Ditto comments about Dublin everyone!  I hope you all have a good race and thoroughly enjoy the day.  I have very fond memories from two years ago and would dearly love to do it again. Looking forward to hearing the reports.

A quick plug for Waterworks parkrun this Saturday.  We are having a visitor from South Africa - Bruce Fordyce.  For those of you that don't know of him (I had to google him) he has done the Commrades 10 times and won it 9 times.  Parkrun on Saturday should be a doddle for him!  If you're not doing anything else on Saturday morning try and get along and give him a welcome.

Anyone wanting a bit more insight into Ultra-running icon Bruce Fordyce - check out past episodes of the marathontalk podcasts for interviews with him:

Go to the Audio Archive section and scroll down to episodes 38 & 39.

Does anyone else listen to marathontalk podcasts? I discovered them recently and love them - really enthusiastic presenters, some good training tips and fascinating interviews with both top-class athletes and mere mortals. Also love the Tony's Trials feature.

Good luck to everyone running in Dublin on Monday.

Alwyn I hear great things about marathon talk but haven't actually got round to listening to it.

Another marathontalk fan, and IMtalk is worth checking out as well well for all things Ironman related. Podcasts are a great alternative to music on long runs. I missed too much Dublin training through injury so, for once, took the sensible option and withdrew 3 weeks ago rather than try to ramp the mileage back up when everyone else was tapering. I hope all the Dublin marathon runners here survive the last couple of days of taper madness and have a great day on Monday. Looks like it'll be a chilly one!

Podcasts great for long runs. MT quality has remained strong throughout. Try runners round table or phedippediations (both us based). Entertaining nevertheless

Brilliant day for running. Think conditions will change overnight. Nice morning at parkrun. Not everyday you meet a running legend.

Thanks to Mags for the heads up on Bruce Fordyce's visit. He seemed to be enjoying the Belfast welcome.

C75, another good battle between you and Daryll by the looks of it at Waterworks.

Plenty of up to date news on NIRunning today. Great site.

Could someone keep us updated on the Dublin Marathon please as I can't get on Facebook or the tracker site from work.

29/10/2012 at 11:22

Paul Pollock 2:16:30 Rodney.

29/10/2012 at 11:43

MAria mc Cambridge 2.35 first Irish woman

29/10/2012 at 11:46

Thanks guys. Super running from them both, but especially Paul Pollock. Keep the updates coming.

Got onto the tracker site but I am a bit confused. Did the clocks not change in the Republic at the weekend?  Kelly Courtney of Ballymena runners ran 3.37.57. Brilliant debut marathon for her.

29/10/2012 at 12:12

PTB ran 2.57.01

29/10/2012 at 12:39

None of those times can be right. Sorry. Anyone else getting the same info on tracker site?

29/10/2012 at 13:46

Rodney I got kelly as 3:47.


29/10/2012 at 15:19

Yes Kenny. Some of the ones showing as Finish were actually predicted finish times but didn't state that. A great run and especially on her debut.

Hope all the Springwell Runners have good runs too.
