Well done to everyone who braved the elements in both the East and West on April 5th.

It was a busy weekend in racing with two large events occurring.

In Connemara
The Connemara is always a popular target each year in all 3 events and this year there was not only the mountain to contend with but rain, hail and wind. Not easy on an already challenging course.

Craughwell 2014 - a personal race report with pictures

The StartI've been running pretty well for a good few months. I'm racing almost as fast now as I was 11 years ago when I got all my personal bests in distances from 5k through the half marathon. Back then I was running six days a week and was more fit than healthy; I was on the physio table with shocking regularity and frequently trying to shake recurrent colds.
