Club Race Report – 15th May 2022

Track session on Wednesday and Sealstown run on Thursday. Ever get the feeling the coaches are trying to kill us? Won’t help numbers for the club championship! (Get yourselves signed up by the way). I get paid every time I plug it so expect a lot of this..

Bernie was nearly our parkrun tourist of the week (is Enniskillen foreign?) but thankfully I was saved, not for the first time, by Dermot Boyd. Dermot completed the Amsterdamse Bos parkrun in the Netherlands in 31:22. This parkrun, as our more cultured Harriers (both of them) may have guessed is in Amsterdam. It takes place in the Amsterdamse Bos park. Did you know it is three times the size of Central park in New York? Do you care? Fine.
Let’s hope Dermot enjoyed his time in Amsterdam and was able to see the sights and do the usual touristy things. I meant museums and pushbikes, people. Get your minds out of the gutter. Honestly!
The only other racing for the Harriers this week was at the first race of the Woodburn Forest Series. Elaine Kennedy finished in 28:15 with a wee course PB to boot.
So this week’s tune is for Dermot. Mainly because, y’know, it’s Dermot. But also because his Amsterdam trip gives me another chance to play this classic. David will probably hate this one.
Until next week, behave.
