There was a great turn out for the 10@10 this morning as some Harriers did their final fine tuning for next week’s Belfast marathon. Some were prepping for the relay, others were running off hangovers and others just ran about getting lost. And all in the sunshine Lovely stuff.
And just remember out there next Monday, it always seems darkest just before
it turns pitch black.
Until next week, behave.
