I had built up a head of Steam in the Spring, and thanks to a GAA injury, Gary Doherty was foiled in his attempt to catch me.

And so it has started … in Mallow today the first ten-miler of the Munster series kicked off the New Year for a couple of hundred runners. The race had a nice relaxed feel to it from when I first arrived in the town until I left. Only the wind and rain conspired against us but even that wasn’t too bad.

As I followed the bright yellow signs around the town towards Race HQ, my mind was bent on making sure I didn’t go out too fast today. Having run less in the month of December than I typically would in a week of training, I was well rested. Of course I blew all that by clocking up a nice few miles in a rush-to-the head of New Year resolutions this week. So the training was upside down – do nothing for the month beforehand and then train hard as a race-taper.

10KM Race Booklet available on-line

Find attached the Fields of Athenry 10KM race booklet in PDF
format. Note, it's nearly 2MB in size.

The organisers printed nearly 400 copies on race day but many
were left without one given the large numbers of competitors.

There is a very small number of print copies still available if
you are interested in your own copy.

Congratulations to John O'Connor of Proactive for working his
'Quark Express' magic again. The man performed miracles to
get the booklet produced in record time.

Feedback from the Fields of Athenry 10k

When you’re on the inside it can be hard to get a feel for how something went. A die-hard football supporter will often support a game from the stands only to watch it again on the box that evening and see a totally different side to it. Caught up in the excitement of the moment our supporter may miss the overall picture and only when she sees it again from 10,000 feet that evening does she notice that there were two teams on the pitch.
