Clonakilty Back to Back
With Magic Jones
Magic Jones

Magic is the only word I can use to describe the run today by club member Margaret Jones who today made history and completed her first back to back marathon in Clonakilty in just over four hours.Despite her sore and very badly blistered feet she headed out this morning accompanied by the great Helen Gilroy who did the first 13 miles with her and then Sheila Buckley took over for the last thirteen.Making the rest of us look like whimps Margaret has a superb run smiling as always through the pain she finished either second or third lady overall ( a few only did one marathon so we await the official results).Amazingly she was flying the last few miles and as always did her club proud.In what were far from ideal conditions of cold and wind she let nothing deter her.
What a lady.
Margaret was running for to raise funds for her young buddy Jonathan who is very seriously ill so anyone that still wants to sponsor her can still do so

Carrigaline 5 mile

A few results in from todays Carrigaline 5 mile where Anna Doris  finished 3rd Lady overall with a great run of 31.45 whilst Noel O'Regan came 3rd O/45.Well done lads.
