Hard to know where to start but I'll try and keep things brief at the same time!
It was a great honour for myself and Athenry AC to have 375 out in Newcastle yesterday evening for the first race of the 4th year of this ever-successful Galway 5KM May Series. It was also the series' 16th race in the three years and we have yet to experience a drop of rain, unlike the night before and this evening! The Big Man/Woman continues to smile down on us...
Most everything went off like clockwork but that is not without a whole lot of work in the background, from course measurement (a story in itself) to registration to parking to on-course stewarding to finish-line logistics to clean-up afterwards. None of this happens by accident and I had a very experienced crew of people around me. Thank you all!
Thanks to all the racers, runners, joggers, Fit4Life and walkers who made the not-inconsiderable effort a joy and all worthwhile.
Your humble servant!
