Weekly Roundup: 2020-08-11

Another new roundup?  Find out why you’re so lucky over the jump!

Warmup
Welcome to our masses of new members who are probably wondering what this is all about. Well, this is your chance to get your name in light – a celebration of any kind of running that is done in the club. It doesn’t matter the speed – all that matters is that you raced it!  Scary one, but I caught my son chewing on electrical cords – so I had to ground him. He’s doing better currently, and now conducting himself properly.  Okay, what have we been doing:

Ration Marathon Carrickfergus
Carrickfergus has some amazing stone path trails, this race linked them with short road sections into a marathon. Held on one of the hottest days of the year (naturally) and with more climbs than a Mourne mountain, runners followed a route book only presented on the day for extra craic. This sounds like a mission for one Dub:

No surprise that it was Steve T was it?! Mega magic running too, as he crossed the line first of the marathon runners. Sounds like a successful return to running even if the sunhat, sunglasses and sun cream were at the ready. This is the kinda race you can get lost at pretty easily too, adding to the achievement. Now then, I’ll you with what we all came here to see the return of the aeroplane:

  • Rational: Coming in to land...

Warmdown
We always ask for photos here; it save us typing more and gives every something better to look at than one of us waffling on. So, if you are racing, don’t forget to get a quick photo (even a selfie) and fire it in to us so we know you were racing!  I just found out what Whitney Houston’s favourite type of coordination is – HAAAAND EEEEEEEEEYYYYEEE!

Live long and prosper.

Disclaimer: Every effort was taken to ensure the results above are correct (there might even be yet another event to cover next week too!). If you’d like to make a complaint, then you’ll automatically volunteer yourself for writing duties next week 🙂
