The racing started back on Wednesday evening with the flat and fast Queens 5k. Plenty of PBs and pizza as usual:
Mark Smith 18:06, Tom Fleming 19:10, Neil McCready 19:23PB, Paddy Brooks 21:35PB, Aidy Hughes 25:30, Angela Stevens 28:39

Omagh was the venue on Saturday for the half marathon and 5k.
Aidy Hughes 24:20
Half Marathon
Ramunas Stanevicius 1:26:52PB, Jim Guinn 1:49:22, Sarah McCafferty 1:53:01, Pamela (sometimes Patricia) McCafferty 1:53:04, Galina Stanevicius 2:12:49

Also on Saturday, 2 Harriers, Elaine Kennedy and Mairead O’Hare took on the EAMs Fatlad series, completing the half marathon distance. Janet Grew went one further (or at least half a one further) and completed the full marathon distance. No times available.

Final result comes from Manchester (Dance cap-ee-tal of England) where Kevin Donnelly took part in the city’s marathon. Kevin finished in an amazing 3:01:11. A huge PB and a great example to us all that training hard pays off. There are no shortcuts.

So this week’s tune is for Kevin – from some older Manchester legends to a new one.

Until next week, behave.
