Photo Gallery of Race 1 – The Irish Runner 5 Mile 2012

Hi all!

So, we did it! The first race of my six is over with now five more to go towards the Marathon in October. Today was great fun, with so many people out running with us. 16 in total, amazing! We had more in support too on the sidelines, which really added to the day. We all finished it in respectable times… some a little quicker than others like Stephen and Niall! What a great buzz.

Mary passed me after a short time, proving she’s been training harder then she told me! Adrian H, Harry and Willy set off at the front and did great times. Ann and Martin powered over the line in a way quicker time then they had anticipated too. Regina and Arlene with Jennifer and Aoife crossed the line with plenty more left in the tank as you can see from the pics. I did around 56 minutes which I was happy with considering I’d been unable to train for a couple of weeks… and probably too many late nights on me recent hols. Brian, Aoife, Ritchie & Philomena looked like they could have done it again from the pic at the end.

Thanks so much Helena and Marie for all the help on the day and Karen, Lisa, Mia and Eabha there cheering us all on too!

Thanks for the support. I also collected some more money which brings us up and up again towards a total that I could have only dreamed of.
