Weekly Roundup: 2016-11-15

From Tollymore to parkrun this week, all over the jump.

Warmup
A nice and mostly quiet week for us at the club, a little lull before the storm at the end of the month – but sure it is all good.  If I’m not myself at training this evening, it is because I has a bad night’s sleep, last night I kept dreaming that I was trying to divide ten by three – it was a recurring dream.  Now then, where are those results?!

Tollymore Races
So another mountain race – and one Dubber actually described it as “class”.  The route, in and around Tollymore Forest Park with the small figure of 3000ft of climbing – all made up for by some “amazing views”.  We had two club members taking part:

Magic running guys, and especially on these trail paths – those were not easy races!  Andrew even reviews the race calling it “highly recommended” – so you know who to blame if you’re taking part in this next year!  Andrew even tells me that after the toil of the Causeway race – this was a breeze!

parkrun
Over the colder months the number of races lessen, but it is great to know that no matter where you go, you can always trust and rely on the parkrun to get your weekend running fix.  This past weekend, we had an Errigle of Dubs taking to the parks:

Great running everyone – it there a better way to kick start the weekendOnly the one hat tip this week (that hasn’t happened in a while), it was a newbie PB this week – from Andy (at Queen’s)!  Despite the issues at the Victoria event (which were promptly resolved), that was also the location of a mini Dub meetup where ex-members Eddie, Colin and Stephen where taking part.

Warmdown
Once again, a final thank you to my spy for sending on some photos this week!  This is your roundup, so make sure to let us know if you’re doing any races that might fall under the radar!  When I am down, I always think of the wise words spoken to me by an English teacher at school “Remember, if you can’t spell Armageddon – it’s not the end of the world!”  

Keep on running!

Live long and prosper.
