Fabulous to see you this morning Paul B. I have to say that I was surprised to see so many faces (or should I say legs) that had been running last night, either in Groomsport or Mallusk. Was sorry to have missed Groomsport but I was helping Mallusk Harriers at their inaugural 5 mile run. It was a great event - albeit on a tough course - and definitely one for the diaries next year.
Glad to hear that you're listening to your body Martin.
For anyone that is free (recovered) tomorrow, there is the Bright 10k in Downpatrick.
Great running tonight Martin (or was that yesterday now?), especially on the back of Dervock on Saturday. Well done to your two sons too - they looked as though they really enjoyed it.
Another great night at Portaferry but a pity about the fog which forced the cancellation of the Strangford ferry. I think that there were a few disappointed runners stranded on the other side of the lough, although a few members of East Down managed to make it over courtesy of a fishing boat .
Paul OH, saw you briefly but didn't get a chance to chat.
Kenny, Dervock was brilliant as usual. Thanks for a great weekend and hope you're well recovered now. See you on Friday.
Well done Martin on completing your first parkrun. It was great to see you at the Waterworks at long last. As Paul says, only 49 more until you get a t shirt.
For the benefit of some of you on here that haven't heard - the Northern Ireland running community lost one of it's great stalwarts last week when County Antrim Harriers Chairman, Greg Hopkins, lost his battle with cancer and passed away. It's hard to believe that we won't see him at the finish line of many races again, shouting encouragement to everyone .
Hi Badbark - long time since we've heard from you on here. Regarding the Santa run on Sunday, someone else also thought that the course was slightly short too but as it was a charity run and not advertised as a measured course I don't think anyone was too worried. I'll be seeing the two people who I know were responsible for measuring the course in the morning and will check with them. Glen definitely didn't have anything to do with measuring the course, he was just responsible for the timing mat and chips.
For anyone interested, Action on Hearing Loss are also having a charity swim at Crawfordsburn this Sunday at 11am. Details are on their website.
