Dee O'Grady finishes 4th in DCM

Athenry native and Athenry AC club member until recently, Dee Grady, ran the race of her life in the Dublin City Marathon last Sunday. Dee, who now runs with Ennis Track after her relocation to County Clare, popped up on the Marathon radar as we were tracking the progress of the leading women last Sunday morning. In contention for a podium finish for the entire race, Dee crossed the finish line as the 4th Irish woman just behind the legendary Pauline Curley in a breathtaking time of 2:50.

Breaking 40

Breaking 40 - Deirdre Brophy's Sub-40 10KM
 
For me, the details of what happens between the start and finish of a race can be a blur. But I do remember how I got to the start line of the Conamara 10K, on a perfect day for running, reasonably confident that I could get around the course in under 40 minutes.
