Annaghdown 10KM result

Congrats to the organisers on reaching 10 with their running of a series of permitted races out in Annaghdown on Sunday, 19 June.  I was very sorry to miss it, having competed in all previous 9.  It was not to be on what looked like a really difficult day for racing - both my car and the Limerick hurlers let me down very badly that day.  Deirdre Brophy (Athenry AC) was the first woman how in a time very close to 40 minutes.  Congrats.  

Screengrabs of the 10KM result and prize winners is attached.

Here's to the next 10 iterations.

Kudos to Kay and Joe O'Regan

See here for one of the many articles done before & after the recent Cork Marathon regarding Kay and Joe O'Regan (ex-Kinvara) of Enniscorthy [both proud Slaney Olympic club stalwarts] and their finishing the full distance, both 80.  I had the great pleasure of meeting them 5 or 6 years ago out in Connemara after Kay finished that full there.  Wonderful people, both full of the joys of life.

Lyall runs Cork Marathon

I first broke 3 hours in the 2012 Cork marathon, running 2:53. Every marathon I ran in 2013, 2014 and 2015 was under 3 hours. In order, these were a 2:54, a 2:52, a 2:45 (pb from Connemara 2014), a 2:47, a 2:58, a 2:48 and another 2:54. I say this for perspective, because last Monday June 6th in Cork, I ran a relatively slow 3:08:31... yet it was one of the most enjoyable marathons I've ever run.

Indulge me please: I need to write a little about the last six months first, before describing this race.
