On Sunday, I finished the Connemarathon, all 26.2 miles of it. That means against all the odds (hell, I wouldn't have bet for me) and a couple of years too late, I win the bet. Woeful time (4.50) and really, really, really, pathetically sore legs.

Awesome. Bragging rights forever. Gerry, if you come to Dublin for the Marathon in October 2010, I'll come to Canada for a marathon in 2011. You can't say fairer than that.

Feeling good about myself today, don't knock it.

New Year and what's happening

It's now 2010 and there hasn't been a marathon yet. Who's doing one this year? Who's going to run 2010 miles this year (it's only about 39 a week)? I'm not up for that many miles, but a bit more running than last year could be good. And more races.

Here is a pic at the end of the Mooathon. No Pic of Sin yet.

He looks happy

As mentioned on Sinead's and my blogs, we ran the Mooathon.

Slightly (but not at all) related: Here is a story about a lady who went amok dressed as a cow.

Sinéad and I ran in the 'Mooathon' from Kilmacrenan to Downings. Sin had planned to do it, I was just an interloper. Happy that I did it, 13.1m (21.08km). Feeling very sore yesterday and today. Long way off a marathon (long way off a half marathon, truth be told...)

Finishing time 2:18. No bad considering that there was a mountain at the beginning.

Bought some fancy webbed shorts to hold my bits in place, good but....next time....more vaseline.

5k run and the english channel?

Had a 5k run yesterday, I feel pretty good. I have a bit of a fricton burn on my thigh though, I may need to start vaselineing my balls.

In other news, I have signed up for a relay team to swim the channel next year (late Aug/September).

Well chaps. I had a run today (1.25km) would like to say that legs are fine (Cathy in the gym says that I'd be feeling shins splints immediately). First run that I have had in some time, I'll be building this up slowly. It'll be a good while before I try any road running.

That is all.
