Club Notes… by Elaine Guinane & team
Stepping in for Karen this week who, like many others, is getting the game face on for Berlin Marathon on Sunday. The very best of luck to all our members travelling at the weekend; at the risk of leaving someone out (and apologies for this), the gang heading over include Karen Bevan, Derek Costello, Mairead Lonergan, Ian Roche, Mark Smith, Derek O Keeffe, Lisa Boland, Ronan Boland, Vivian Foley and Sean O Keeffe.. Have a great run, everyone.
Special Mention to Richard Piotrowski this week: As reported on last week’s mail Richard, one of our outstanding masters athletes, gave a terrific performance in the Cross Country world Championship event in Malaga, finishing in 9th place and leading his National team to a silver medal. Unfortunately, luck was not Richard’s side as he tackled the 10km event this week. A runner went down ahead of Richard, which led to a bit of pushing from behind and Richard unfortunately took a tumble. Down but not out, Richard still managed to pick up again and finish the race in 8th place in an excellent time of 44.25. The incident did, however, end Richard’s involvement in the championships and rule him out of the 5km track race. Congratulations to Richard on his achievements prior to this and we wish him a speedy recovery!
