[acidfree:6046 title=" " rotate=right size=150 align=right]Driving out from Galway city earlier this evening, it looked as if we were odds on to have a repeat of the wettest 5K series race I can remember to date - Claregalway 2010. However, despite some heavy showers prior to the starting gun, the weather cleared up somewhat to ensure that the race could be run in reasonable weather conditions.
Again, much thanks is owed to all in Craughwell AC for hosting another great race on the local athletics calendar.
Now updated with an extract (PDF format attached) of the GCH results from race #1 in Athenry. Results are sorted according to surname and display provisional (i.e. gun) time only. Congratulations to both Matthew Bidwell and Regina Casey for coming in as first male and female athletes respectively.

While a GCH contingent had travelled for the orginal date before Christmas when the race had to be postponed, there were only 2 GCH athletes in the field of 131 today - both Eddie Costello and Jean O'Connor gave a good run of it nonetheless.

[acidfree:5742 title=" " align=right size=80]What makes running and racing so enjoyable for many of us is striving to improve on previous performances and bettering ourselves from race to race and from year to year, as we get more miles into our legs, improve on our training and conditioning and hopefully avoid injury along the way.
