Kenny, you seem to be well prepared for Larne. I'm hoping to be able to get down to Carlingford this weekend for my first half marathon this year. It looks to be a nice scenic route.
NI Running has reported that HMM completed the 'Grizzly' 20 mile Multi-Terrain Race yesterday. 'At one of England's toughest running events, the 'Grizzly' 20 mile multi-terrain race, Ballymena Runners athlete (HMM) produced a strong performance to smash his previous best over the course. In 2012, Peter covered the tough route in 4:28:12, but on this occasion, the Belfast Marathon pacer showed that his recent training has paid off when he crossed the line in 3:16:23 (212th place).'
Well done Paul. I was down in Castlewellan this morning for the born2run 10k. Nice course and a lot easier than the Christmas Cracker. Lucky enough too, the rain stayed off until after the race. That was the last one in their forest series for this winter.
Impressive running on this forum given the conditions over the past few weeks. Nice Spring morning today and I had a nice run of 8.5 miles @ 8.20 pace. And had my coffee afterwards - oh and also 2 bowls of cereal, bread & a banana. And still hungry.... Anyway, pleased with the run and now looking forward to the half marathon series this year. Reading HMM's report of ploughing waist deep in snow put me in the notion of getting into the mountains again. So I went down to the Mournes yesterday but much of the snow had gone. Still, it was a good day out.
