Thanks Martin, I enjoyed the race lovely day and hardly a breeze. 30 secs off my Maghera time and creeping closer to breaking the 60 mins. Good to meet One2escape today good to be able to put a face to the name and Mags just pops up everywhere. Next race for me is the Fairhill 5 in Ballymena. 

10 mile recovery run this morning followed by 45 min charity spin have left me knackered today.

See you tomorrow guys. I'll be wearing my new go faster Springwell top.

3.6 miles last night and the legs felt a bit heavy after Tuesday evening. The weather looks good though.

Maghera 10K done last night tough night with wind in rain during the first half. Finished strong and was happy with my run knocking 6 mins off last years time and just outside my 2013 time. Now to try and improve further at Ballyclare on Saturday.

Well done Paul I have drove the Surf 'n' Turf route myself in the car and know how tough it is and have been talking to a few who said it was tough coming back along the beach.

Maghera 10K for me tonight and then Ballyclare on Saturday. I don't know how I'd as it's been a long time since I did two races in a week.

Ecos parkrun on Saturday it was a lovely morning for it and I was happy with my time. Back down to earth with a bang yesterday it was wet and windy and my abductor started playing up so I had to cut my run short. I'm hoping to do Maghera 10K next Tue and Ballyclare on the Sat but will have to wait and see how I get on this week.

Well done everyone some interesting stories.

Marathons are difficult to get right. You can do all the preparation and on the day something happens. I did three tripped after a mile in the first on bang my knee on the kerb. There was a bomb scare on the second and we were diverted adding on and extra 400m plus distance. They told us 400m but most people thought it was more. The last one was probably my best then I had to retire from marathons. The problem with marathons is you put so much effort into preparing for them you feel bad when it doesn't work out. But if they were easy everyone would be doing them.

Well done one2escape great report. If you start too fast in the marathon it catches up with you in the end. You did it got a PB and know what to expect the next time.

The debate about the relay has been going on for years and it is frustrating when your tired and the relay guys go flying past.

Lack of bottled water has be debated too and they say it's a H&S issue. The race is sponsored by a DeepRiverrock and they don't give you a bottle.
