Ricky I was moving slow enough to turn around so the sun didn't miss any bits, think large slow moving kebab with sunglasses on

Well Done, Martin! That was seriously hot - you did very well to finish in those conditions. But I'm feeling very short-changed with your race report .... Where's the photo of you in the turquoise & orange finisher's Tee with matching turquoise shorts?!!

Alwyn , I don't think that worked , tried posting a photo can see it on my iPad but not on my phone

Well done Martin I am glad you survide the intense heat.

25/10/2013 at 11:27

I am away this weekend so can I just wish everyone who is running Dublin Marathon all the very best and I hope you all have a successful race. I look forward to hearing the reports next week.

Well done on finishing in that heat, Martin. And Heather, congratulations on your marathon pb. The Yorkshire marathon is one I'll like to do myself. It's a nice part of England and Jane Tomlinson was such an inspirational woman.

Unfortunately, I'm having to take a long break from running as have become ill myself. Thankfully, my fitness has got me through the worst part without a hitch and am on the mend but it may not be until next summer before I'm back running. In the meantime I'll keep up with all your news through the forum.

All the best to those running in Dublin on Monday and I hope the weather settles for it. It's a brilliant event and I look forward to hearing of lots of pbs.

3x 1 mile on the track this morn for me in the pouring rain..nice  , Goodluck to all the dubliners , might do this one myself one day maybe next year if im in good enough mara shape which I certainly an not at the minute .

Hopefully you will be back running again soon Paul

Well done Martin on getting round in the heat. I'm still laughing at that kebab remark.

.  Great run Heather, you certainly picked the right place for a PB.

All the best to everyone running on Monday. Weather forecast is dry as I write. I'm in wave 3 at the start, say hello if you see me. No great expectations for me, it might be another case of being passed by the 4.30 pacers at 21 miles .

Best wishes for your recovery Paul B, keep in touch with the forum here.

Alwyn,Ricky,TLH,Paul OH, The best of luck for Dublin I hope the weather improves !!

Paul OH , dont worry about those pacers , In Majorca I couldnt catch the 4hr pacer, was passed by the 4:15 then the 4:30 and finally by an elderly German couple walking a Dachhound 

Paul B, Sorry to hear you havent been well , I hope you are over the worst of it and on your way to recovery.

Thanks Leslie, Paul & Martin. No, I'm great. Really great. I'm getting spoilt at home now but just sore after surgery. Once I fully recover, I'll be offered further treatment which will probably last 6 months, so I'll probably be out of action for quite a while. I had to turn down an offer of running the 2014 London marathon, but have my eyes set on 2015 now. I just want to make the point that fitness from running got me though a major 5 hour operation without any problem. I was out for a short walk today for the first time and it felt so good.

In the meantime I'll just be lurking on the forum. Looking forward especially to hearing the reports from Dublin.

Your fitness and strength are inspirational, Paul, and you're demonstrating the massive benefits that running and triathlon can bring where it really matters. Make sure the family keep spoiling you and see you soon!

Paul B, Ditto what DS has said.  You've a tough few months ahead of you but your fitness, strength and positive inspirational attitude will stand you in good stead.  All your friends at parkrun send their best wishes.

Good luck everyone running Dublin - hope the wind dies down.  My eldest is running it as his second marathon but unfortunately I can't go down to cheer him on.  Look forward to hearing the reports.

Thanks DS & Mags. Change the subject now, Did anyone watch the Killarney adventure race on Channel 4 this morning? It looked a real cracker. You can still watch it on

28/10/2013 at 13:33

I see in Dublin, Alwyn finished in 3.28.35, Ricky W in 3.39.23, Littlest Hobo in 3.40.59 and DS in 3.59.27.

Brilliant times! Well done. Apologies to anyone on the forum I may have missed.

28/10/2013 at 16:04

Well done to all the marathon runners some excellent times. Paul ran 4:29:49.

Paul B sorry to hear you have been unwell wishing you a speedy recovery.

Well done to all the forumites running in Dublin today - great times all round in almost ideal running conditions. I was delighted to scrape in with a sub-4 finish after less than perfect training and a heavy reliance on a decent tri season for endurance. I also passed a wee milestone today, completing my 25th standalone marathon.

well done everyone running in Dublin today, great times all round

28/10/2013 at 21:58

29/10/2013 at 07:22
