Well, after all the excitement of the Belfast marathon and relays, this week was a bit quieter. No doubt you, like me, were just spending the week getting physically and emotionally ready for the Eurovision song contest. Never mind marathons, if you want to see humankind at its finest, going above and beyond the limits of human endurance, then Eurovision has it all.
Netta, we salute you. Sort of. Anyhow, running…

And A Dav went to the Valley 21:55.
So, this week Lee O’Boyle thought he was our parkrun tourist completing Portrush parkrun in 19:53.
But then Stephen Weir went to Newcastle 32:29.
However, both were well outdone by Susan Thompson and Ken McAuley who, accompanied by a club fleg, got as far as Crissy Park parkrun in San Francisco. They finished in 24:46 and 24:47 respectively with Susan using the occasion to complete her 100th parkrun. Well done! Enjoy the rest of the trip.
Waterworks junior parkrun:
Joseph Eager 10:30, Leo McAuley 11:45, Eloise McAuley 12:18PB (3rd week in a row!), Riley Kerr 13:21, Aaron Ladd 17:11PB
I’m still recovering from what was obviously a dodgy “protein shake” yesterday, so whilst I crawl back under the covers, you can listen to this west coast classic.
Until next week, behave.
