We had two members taking part in the London Marathon yesterday with Mary Kealy first home in a brilliant time of 3:21 & Pat Forde finishing in 3:38.
Closer to home our newest piece of kit got its first run out at the Under 9-12s Galway T&F meet in Dangan. With the unsettled weather our new marquee tent was put to good use & I'm sure we'll see more of it in the coming months.
I have been trying since DCM 2008 to break 3 hours, some said “she would never do it” and sometimes I began to think the same….so what happened?
I ignored them and believed in myself.
I have struggled for years with stomach issues since getting Cryptosporidium in 2007, at the time it was a great pre-wedding diet but if only I knew the consequences!
Now for a report with a difference. How else to report on a marathon than in two halves….by two separate people! Mary Rohan & Esther Leahy give a great account of their experience in the Manchester Relay Marathon last weekend.
Part 1 – Mary:

As Sam Cooke once sang, It's been a looong, a long time coming but I know a sub-3 is gonna come.........
Congrats to all involved in the GSP 10KM in Labane on Saturday, 18 April. A lovely event, not spoilt in the least by the strong sun and gusty wind that greeted the runners all the way around the rolling and roiling hills of Ardrahan.
Final result is now attached.
Congratulations to Clare River Harriers on a very nice event, where the rain stayed away but not the wind. A good preparation for much stiffer targets ahead in May!
