Club Report – Sunday 15th September 2019

I didn’t sleep well last night. Bad dreams about flags and measurements. Those of you at the quiz last night will understand my pain. Craic was good and it was probably the first time I’ve had to put myself in the mindset of a migrating swallow to see where I would go in the winter.
Big thanks to social boy Ian and his lovely helper Fidelma (even though she wouldn’t tell us the answers).

Taking on the parkruns this week were:
Valley parkrun:
Alan Erwin 20:45PB, Prof Alan Ladd 22:56, Neil Campbell 22:57, Maeve Kennedy 26:01, Owen Fulton 26:29, Joe Mathers 26:32, Yasmin Lynn 26:57, Eamon Donaghy 28:36, Joanne Milne 29:56, Stephen Weir 31:24

Waterworks parkrun:
Jim Hewitt 24:24, Hollie Brennan 46:14, Suzanne Brennan 47:10, Tiffany Donaldson 35:04, Danny Donaldson 35:07

ECOS parkrun:
Andrew McNevison 19:23

Antrim parkrun:

Our parkrun tourists this week were Elaine Kennedy at Craigavon 27:50 and Sarah Ross at Dunedin NZ 27:07PB.
Dunedin may be in “beautiful” New Zealand but Craigavon has a petting zoo and an artificial ski slope. So there.

Waterworks junior parkrun:
Joseph Eager 9:51, Hollie Brennan 16:351
And well done Hollie on getting your half marathon band!

Jordanstown junior parkrun:
Matthew Hawkins 11:17

And ADav was at the Valley, 20:58.

It was the Gig’n the Bann 5kin Portglenone on Thursday night and our own Prof Ladd was there, finishing in 18:16. Also, Suzanne Brennan in 25:24 and Zoe Neill 32:10PB.

On Friday night, Snapper Boyd was back at it again, this time at the GRC Coastal 5k in Carnlough/Glenarm. Our current ROTM finished in 29:33.

So this week’s tune is for Ian (and Fidelma). Tunes with questions? Loads of good ones – Who Are You? Is This Love? What’s Going on? Should I Stay or Should I Go? How Soon Is Now? Da Ya Think I’m Sexy? What’s New Pussycat? Are Friends Electric? Will You Love Me Tomorrow? How Much Is That Doggie In The Window?
The list is endless but this one is mainly how we felt last night. And it’s a proper tune from a proper band.
(We didn’t win)

Until next week, behave.
