With so many friends heading down the duathalon route decided to buy a bike and took it out for the first time today..frightening. after being to a load of rtc's over the years I guess I did err on the side on caution a few times. Am doing the Ballymoney one.gulp.
Breaking 4hours finally in Yorkshire.
Gullion..for the sheer fun of it.
Forkhill 10k theres simply none better.
A single mile in 6.19
Turning up at a race in Kilmars and seeing the locals thinking that the big guns from Belfast had come over to take their trophies across the Irish sea.only to find me eating a 99 before the race.
My wife running..totally changed my whole life.
Looking to scratch the 50k itch but not sure where? Help!
just reading your comments about Gullion...love it Martin..we'd a great time and hoped the colour added a bit to the event..trying to organise it on a yearly theme for those that want to dress up...cops v robbers...highlander v lion heart....and next year is superheroes....so that braveheart speech I learnt word for word is now redundant.
Just did my favourite 10k...Forkhill...amazing 2 top running friends from England came over for it Steve Darby and Hannah Oldroyd came over and took 1st and 2nd place...honestly my favourite race 46:11 and nothing left in the tank.
Did the 1/2 at the Tollymore event..amazing running in the forest and as I was running alone....(friends all doing the 10k full or ultra) I decided to go hell for leather and did 1:50..when I drove home I'd a wee bit of trouble getting out of the car!
Also looking forward to Gullion. Last year they billed it as fancy dress or retro running if anyone wanted to add to the fun element, for the craic.only one person arrived dressed up me...but after a while my running friend seen the benifits of joining the fun element did get dressed up joining me as highland warrior. This year im guaranteed 4 dressed up..but hey its for the hospice so anything goes in my book.
