Runner of the month – January 2022

Cold, wet and windy – that’s January and Mallusk fairly gets its fair share of this. You could be forgiven for thinking that weather would put people off running but that’s not how we do it at Mallusk Harriers. As usual you have been out in force throughout January racing and training as hard as ever.

Here are your nominees for January’s runner of the month:

Hannah Hope

“Hannah has come along way after her injury and puts a lot of effort into her training.”

Kevin Donnelly

“Another smashing pb to start the year off he’s just getting better and better.”

Karen McKee

“Karen’s ongoing running streak (running everyday in

January) was to be admired. Even if it’s just a mile or two some days, she has shown that a bit of dedication to this simple idea can do wonders for fitness levels. And she’s still going! Inspiring stuff Karen – well done and keep it going.”

Eloise McAuley

“Outstanding park runs with PBs and her 4th place in our own cross country. She’s a chip of the old block and a force to be reckoned with.”

Sean Doherty

“I’d like to nominate Sean for ROTM. He has really been putting in the effort at Tuesday night training and it is definitely paying off. He’s getting faster and stronger every week. I’m sure there will be lots of PB’s in the near future.”

“Can see a big difference in his running getting faster and stronger runner so has definitely put the work in.”

As always there can only be one winner and January’s runner of the month is Jackie Teer.

“Jackie’s determination on Tuesday night Intervals should be commended. His dedication is admirable. He is getting stronger and faster every week. Keep it up Jackie!”

“He turns up for training every week knowing he is not the fastest but he always gives it his all! He shows that evenafter you retire you’re never too old to join a running club and improve your fitness. He also encourages others to do the same.”

“When coaches ask for 100% in training Jackie is one you know you can count on. He shows great determination and the results of this are showing every week. “

Massive congratulations Jackie and well done to everyone who received a nomination.
