Club Report – Sunday 4th November 2018

As the leaves turn brown and the post-Dublin hangovers fade, the Harriers head back out on the roads and trails this week, making the most of the Autumn sunshine. Doing the rounds of the parkruns were: Valley parkrun: Laura Rose 22:11PB (and 2nd female finisher), Stephen Gallagher 22:24PB, Gabrielle McMillan 24:11PB, Brendan McGeown 25:35(No PB…

Club Report – Sunday 28th October 2018

A quiet week this week, until the weekend, as most of you were gearing up for the two big events – the latest XC league event and the Dublin marathon. The headers had their second outing of the XC season on Saturday (Suzanne HOTM Brennan could be heard gurning the whole way from Florida). Taking…

Downhill. Buns. It seems these two words are all that is needed to get Harriers out of bed. At least the crowd at this morning’s 10@10 would definitely suggest so. Lee is definitely back on a lot of Santa lists after that one. But there was an awful lot of other running this week so…

Club Report – Sunday 14th October 2018

I had a whole spiel organised giving off about the rain. I wrote it yesterday. I binned it this morning. Instead I will have to give you my favourite metaphysical poet, John Donne: “No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace as I have seen in one autumnal face” This week’s long run was definitely…

Club Report – Sunday 7th October 2018

Winter is coming, as yer man says, and it was definitely felt by any of us out doing long runs this morning. As the coaches told me “If you feel good during a long run, don’t worry, you’ll get over it.” The vest in the west found yet another Tyrone road race yesterday completing the…

Club Report – Sunday 30th September 2018

Wee bit later this week. Maybe I was too wrapped up in the Ryder Cup or maybe I just had to wait until the end of the Strictly results. Some things are just better left unspoken to be honest. Doing the rounds of the parkruns were: Valley parkrun: Owen Fulton 26:49, Alan “too many questions”…

Club Report – Sunday 23rd September 2018

Firstly, apologies for the late posting. I couldn’t get a full list of half marathon results until today. I think you all had a quiet week of racing just so you could all turn up for the Half yesterday. And why not! But more of that later. 2 members who shirked the Half were Lee…

Club Report – Sunday 16th September 2018

“The lesson of running is to train well, and then have full faith in your training and show the proof in the race”. You may think these fine words were spoken by me after my long run this morning (highly unlikely as I was unable to communicate at that point) or more philosophising from Danny,…

Club Report – Sunday 9th September

Apologies for the no show last week. Sometimes real life gets in the way. Many thanks to my totally adequate young apprentice for stepping in at the last minute. Much appreciated. The week of racing started on Thursday night as two Harriers joined over 750 other runners to take part in the 2nd Citi Inspire…

Club Report – Sunday 2nd September 2018
