I thought about this one and I’ve decided I will do a seperate post on the island of Inis Mór.
For now this one is for Temple Street and why I as one of so many others decided to run a half marathon.
Dave Kelleher one of the organisers explains how it all started.
Nick McGivney explains just what your money will be used for this year.
So I’m a bit stiff today. I think I may need to bath in WD40. I ran most of the race and managed to cross the line. The latter being the most important. The craic was 90 which won’t help me cope with the aches this coming week at all The big picture however is something far greater than me and my tendons.
The object of the game was to raise some dosh and in that maybe make someone else’s job here a bit easier. And we, well… more you, did that. You chucked in your fivers and tenners and more. And I thank you from the bottom of my heart for that.
What was said off air by Dave was that when the first and equally the very last last person crosses the finish line, the exact same medal and applause is and was given to each. I like that. I like you for being the reason that i did that. Pat yourselves on the back. You did good.
