Fit 4 Life on the road again. What a week

Once again, F4L on the road and what a week!

Thursday Clonee 10k (part 2 of the 3 series DAC races)
You all saw there or ‘out the window’ the fantastic weather that was awaiting for out runners.
There are several things this race is famous for: it is flat (good for a PB) and Domino’s pizza afterwards. We had as well Avonmore protein milk! Getting better if possible every year.
While the non-running ones were setting the catering for all the runners afterwards, a large group of runners went over the N3 bridge to the Start line in the pouring rain, but this didn’t stop anyone, if anything made them faster.
It was a great race with a huge amount of PBs. Everyone enjoyed it, were smiling back at the Grasshopper and were very thankful about the race and spread afterwards.
You can find your results here!
Special attention to Siobhan Carey, Pauline Singleton and Lauren Flood who were respectively 1st, 2nd and 3rd in their own categories. Sean Collins was 2nd in his.
Major achievement to the ones who did 10k distance for the 1st time.
