Club Report – Sunday 14th July 2019

I’m walking on sunshine and don’t it feel good.
So said Katrina and her Waves. I disagree.
Both on a general scientific basis (it sounds dangerous to me) and also after my run today. I was practically walking and didn’t feel good at all.

Taking on the parkruns this week were:
Valley parkrun:
Neil McCready 20:20PB, Micky McAuley 22:52, Sharon Dunn 26:19, Yasmin Lynn 29:17, Joanne Milne 30:40, Sophie Davidson 30:56, Ben Davidson 30:58, Leo McAuley 31:03, Terry McIvor 31:20, Ian Simpson 36:46, Jennifer Maguire 58:44

Waterworks parkrun:
Danny Donaldson 20:38, Lord Ian Brennan 24:56, Suzanne Brennan 25:33, Maeve Kennedy 27:32, Tiffany Donaldson 35:50

Victoria parkrun:
Mark Smith 17:38

Antrim parkrun:
Elaine Kennedy 28:43, Laura Rose 32:08

Wallace parkrun:
Dermot Boyd 30:58PB

Colin Glen parkrun:
Stephen Smyth 21:50

Must be that time of year as there are parkrun tourists everywhere at the minute. The Family Fleck went to the sands of Portrush – Philip Fleck 30:05, Nikki Fleck 30:06, Lucy Fleck 1:01:14 plus Tina Steele 28:52. Joe Mathers headed further west to Falcarragh, finishing in 19:24. But this week’s joint winners are the same as last week’s joint winners as Ramunas and Galina continue their travels around Ireland. This week they were in Co. Clare at the Clarisford parkrun. Ramunas finished in 20:01 and Galina in 30:43. Clarisford parkrun is in the village of Killaloe. This was the birthplace of Brian Boru, High King of Ireland in the 11th century and was actually the capital of Ireland for several years. No jokes, just facts. Just because school is out doesn’t mean you can’t keep learning kids!

Waterworks junior parkrun:
Leo McAuley 9:25, Eloise McAuley 9:57, Joseph Eager 10:04
And a big congratulations to Leo on completing his 100th junior parkrun!!

Jordanstown junior parkrun:
Peter Fleming 8:38PB, Matthew Hawkins 11:18, Riley Kerr 11:20, Rhys Kerr 14:59

And ADav was at the Valley, finishing in 22:23.

So, this week’s tune is in honour of the weather. Not fun for the follicly challenged in the club but lovely for the rest of us. Just remember to keep those taps on. Thanks

Until next week, behave.
