On Saturday three of our coaches, Keith, Kevin and David represented Ireland in the world Masters Half Marathon in Toruń in Poland. Having packed thermals it turned out Poland wasn’t so cold, and the morning of the race was quite hot and heavy. Also turned out the supposedly flat course was very hilly. That being said the boys (and yes they’ve had their metabolic ages taken and we can officially call them boys), took it in they’re stride.
Keith led the Irish team home with a PB of 1:17:29. He was shortly followed by Kevin (1:18:33) and David (1:19:29 another PB).
So proud of you all. You are an inspiration to our young athletes starting out on their athletic careers. Thanks also to everyone who sent messages of goodwill and support.
Now to recovery…. yes they do practise what they preach. Sea bath, great for those sore, tired muscles. Has to be 10 minutes though 🥶🥶🥶.
