Club Report – Sunday 10th June 2018

I need to start this week by catching up with a few results that came in too late for last Sunday’s report.

Let’s not forget that one of our juniors was at the latest Lagan Valley Firmus Fab 5 meeting back on May 31st:

Let’s just put a hold on the parkrun results for a moment.
Let me take you back to the colder days of Nov 12th 2017.
I quote from the wonderful report of that week:

Fairview parkrun:
The Brennans headed to Dublin for what seems to be a lot of drinking in green sports tops. Rugby may have been involved but this is yet to be proven.
Suzanne Brennan 24:49, Ian Brennan 24:56
Ian, your day will come. And when it does, men all across the club will sing your name.

Okay, let me bring you back to the present day:

Waterworks parkrun
Patrick McGuckin 21:40, Lord Ian Brennan 23:26PB, Stephen Semple 23:37, Jim Hewitt 26:18, Maeve Kennedy 28:21, Jo HOTM Smyth 46:14
Yes, write down the date to tell your children. This week Lord Ian beat his wife’s 5k PB. He is obviously in a LOT of trouble but let’s just enjoy it for now. From a safe distance. If I stop typing for a few seconds I can definitely hear male voices echoing over the hills of Mallusk. Lord Ian, we salute you.
Antrim parkrun:
Wes Barker 21:02PB, Nikki Fleck 26:52, Elaine NY Kennedy 29:34, Jennifer McCoppin 31:38, Debbie Sterritt 32:58, Janet Grew 33:15, Fidelma McCoppin 33:52, Marie McFarlane 33:56

Stormont parkrun:
Alastair CHO Houldsworth 20:47 (welcome back Sir!), Katherine Todd 51:05

This week’s tourists were Adrian Hughes who completed the MUSA Cookstown parkrun in 23:37 and Dawn DuBois who completed the Ecos parkrun on 37:13PB.

And ADav was at the Valley 22:36. And well done on your 4th round knockout young man!

Waterworks junior parkrun:
Ryan McCready 9:35, Joseph Eager 10:02, Matthew Hawkins 11:28, Leo McAuley 13:31, Eloise McAuley 13:51

Jordanstown junior parkrun:
Riley Kerr 11:29PB

Also on Saturday, the growing triathlon branch of the club were in action with Damien Cole who took part in the Crooked Lake triathlon in Camlough.

So, this week’s aptly named tune is in honour of Lord Ian’s achievement.
Take it away lads.

Until next week, behave.
