But let’s forget our elite athletes taking part in the Junior Mile(ish):

And finally, Bernard McKeaveney headed westward to the Waterside Half Marathon. Bernard completed his sunny half in 2:03:17.

It may not be obvious from the times above but the big news of the week is that the 10k crown in Brennan Towers has changed hands after that PB. So this week’s tune is for the Lord. Impressive Ian but probably not clever.

Until next week, behave.
