Five 795ers toed the line of the 2014 Dublin City marathon on a relatively warm but very windy October Bank Holiday Monday. The marathon never fails to throw up surprises and drama and 2014 didn’t disappoint! Our brave five really did the club proud and battled to the end setting some great times.
Trish McCord, in the company of her sisters, continued a fantastic year clocking 4hr 34 minutes. What a great year for Trish. David Tully had to call on all his reserves and willpower as the wheeels came off mid way but still managed to finish in 4hrs 15mins. David had trained very well for the race and possibly got the pacing wrong but showed real character to finish. Bernie Black – take a bow! A terrifically paced race, Bernie came home in 3hrs 59 mins and 76th in her age category – what a race! Bill Barry struggled to fine the right pace but dug deep to finish in an excellent 3hrs 34 mins despite hitting several walls along the way! Mike Ryan came into the race with an nagging foot injury but showed his usual race smarts and ran a very even paced race to finish in a super time of 3hrs 30 mins and 80th in his age category. The marathon remains one of the toughest events around full stop, to finish is an achievement and not to be underestimated – to the five we salute you!
