Dublin Marathon journey by Gillian

dublin city marathon start

Dublin City Marathon 2014 – The weather building up to this event did not bode well.  Friday, Saturday and Sunday was a mixture of sun, rain, cloud and worst of all wind – with speeds exceeding 35mph. Weather reports on Sunday suggested we were in for a dull cloudy day with wind speed 25-35MPH for the Marathon. This would mean that we would get a head wind on mile 13 -15 and a tailwind from mile 22 onwards. With that in mind, I packed my race bag, put my number on my race top and went to sleep early Sunday evening and awoke to the sound of howling wind outside my window. [Read more…]

Athlone 3/4 Marathon by Gillian

Athlone 3/4 Marathon

With a slight nip in the air and my bags packed, I began my journey to Glasson Golf Club and the start line of the Athlone 3/4Marathon.  After a nice relaxing car journey down to Glasson and the car parked up, I made my way to Race HQ. I was to collect my race number and to tuck into a freshly backed scone with melted butter and strawberry jam, and of course a cup tea.  Stomach full and number attached, all I now had to do was to relax until 10.45 when we were to be summoned to the car park for a pre-race briefing. Then it was on down to the start line. [Read more…]
