My new year’s resolution is to be less sarcastic and more positive. How long do you think this fairy tale will last?!
Anyway, resolutions are like kids – more fun making than keeping. On with the results…
Late result from last week was Dawn Dubois completing the EAMS 10k on Sunday 31st in 1:21:50.
On the same day, our vest in the west, Aidy Hughes found yet another race none of the rest of us had heard of (not even Lee!). Aidy completed the Loughmacrory 5 mile race in 43:58 (unofficial).
Traditionally, the first race of the year is the Race over the Glens. Harriers were well represented as usual:
Lee O’Boyle 35:26 (11th overall and 1st place in M35 category), Joe Mathers 38:52, Stephen Gallagher 43:06, Nuala Muldoon 49:53

The new year tourist was Aidy Hughes who headed east (for him) to Citypark parkrun, finishing in 25:14.
Citypark parkrun is in the lovely city of Craigavon, home of the roundabout and our local version of Milton Keynes. It has a dry ski slope and a petting zoo. I once saw Gloria Hunniford in Craigavon. There is nothing else printable that I can say about Craigavon. But I love Craigavon.
Well done to all those who managed to get 2 parkruns in this morning. Let’s see you keep that effort up all year now!

Until next week, behave.
