Club Run Report – Sunday 25th July 2021

“Heat not a furnace for your foe so hot that it do singe yourself” said Shakespeare.
No, I’ve no idea what he’s on about either but, to be fair, I’m just glad that it’s hot enough for me to complain about how hot it is.

They say heat makes things expand. Thank goodness for that, I thought it was all the ice cream I was eating.
Taking on just the 9 different parkruns this week were:

Valley parkrun:
Neil Campbell 20:31, Sean Doherty 22:48, Joe Mathers 24:18, Owen Fulton 25:55, Ciaran Hawkins 26:25, Clare Teer 27:03, Neill McGlinchey 31:57, John Teer 40:54

Waterworks parkrun:
Ben Davidson 19:32, Joanne Milne 30:34, Claire McCann 33:33

Portrush parkrun:
Lord Ian Brennan 27:32, Suzanne Brennan 30:54

Antrim parkrun:
Maeve Kennedy 25:21, David Esler 28:03, Elaine Kennedy 32:41

Castlewellan parkrun:
Martin O’Neill 18:54

Limavady parkrun:
Johnny Carey 23:48

Stormont parkrun:
Anton Piatek 23:17

Sixmilewater parkrun:
Michael McFarlane 36:03

Hillsborough Forest parkrun:
Dermot Boyd 35:07

And the Rt. Hon. ADav graced the Waterworks with his presence this week finishing in 18:30 and 3rd place overall. This matches, but does not beat, his previous PB so no praise from me. How much harder could it have been to go one second quicker, eh?

Jordanstown junior parkrun:
Joseph Eager 9:35, Matthew Hawkins 10:28

Waterworks junior parkrun:
Leo McAuley 8:48, Eloise McAuley 9:36PB

The only other racing of note was the performance of Eloise McAuley at the NI & Ulster Track Championship. Eloise won bronze in the 300m.

A result just in, Aidy Hughs braved the hills (and heat) in Galbally for their 5k, 29:28
As I said to the current Mrs Cavillator this week, I know I’m the best in our family at applying suncream but I don’t like rubbing it in.

Here’s a song. Enjoy.
Until next week, behave.
