EAGLE AC Weekly Club Email

Evening all

Congratulations this week to Pat O’ Connor on a great performance in Amsterdam a great result, and Ruairi has the details below for you so I won’t spoil the surprise! Great stuff Pat!

The very best of luck to all our fantastic Eagle AC runners heading to the Dublin city marathon this Sunday! The long training plans have come to an end and it’s time to put all of those plans into action and make to most of your time on the roads of Dublin, we hope everyone has a great day out and you reach your planned targets.

For any Eagle AC runners who are targeting the 4 hour mark Ian Roche is kindly offering to act as a race buddy and pace a 4 hour marathon. It’s a great opportunity both for some great company along the way and an evenly paced marathon with Ian’s help and marathon experience. If Interested please contact Ian on 087 9202217

After the marathon I think the general consensus is to head Doheny Nessbit’s, 5 Baggot Street Lower Dublin 2, to catch up with club members and review the highs and lows of the day.

As with any marathon training plan I know there are some Eagle AC runners who will not reach the start line in the shape that they had hoped for, and some that will not be able to run the marathon this year, this is always very disappointing. I guess the thing to remember is that recovery from injury is priority number 1, and there will always be another marathon or race on the horizon. We wish you a speedy recovery, stay positive stay strong.

Best of luck to all club members in all runs races you are undertaking this weekend.
Take Care Happy Running.

Evening all

Hope the week is treating you well.

We have to begin by congratulating Mark Smith this week on the completion of the Chicago Marathon last weekend, just 3 weeks after the Berlin Marathon. This was a fantastic achievement for Mark not only finishing in a superb time with two marathons so close together, but also the completion of all 6 of the Abbott World Marathon Majors. Brilliant stuff Mark more on this below.

Secondly and another World Championships event we wish the very best of luck to club member Annemarie Power who is taking part in the Ironman World Championships in Hawaii this weekend, Saturday 13th October. AnneMarie is an inspirational athlete and we wish her all the very best for Saturday. I’m sure that all of those hours of training will pay dividends on the day, we are all supporting you and hoping that everything goes to plan!

Things are definitely quieting down on the local races but well done to Derek O’Keeffe who managed to seek out and win one near Mitchelstown last Saturday.

Finally, as is almost a tradition by now, we will hold a coffee run the on Saturday the 20th October the weekend before the Dublin Marathon. This is social run at a conversational pace and suited to all club members groups will form with various paces on the morning, and if for any reason you cannot run but would like to join for the coffee after that would be great too. More on this below.

Take care and hope storm Callum doesn’t cause too much disruption tonight!

Chicago Marathon Sunday 7th October 2018

Club member Mark Smith ran the Chicago Marathon last Sunday in a fantastic time of 2:34:21. Mark finished 122nd male, 8th in his age group and 131st overall. This Marathon also makes Mark a Six Star Finisher completing all 6 of the Abbott World Marathon Majors, which is something that many of us dream of but very few actually achieve, from my (brief!) research i can see only 22 Irish names on that list. So our heartfelt congratulations to Mark on such a fantastic achievement, and of course we will be chasing you down now for a report on your experience of the six, London, New York, Tokyo, Boston, Berlin and Chicago. Hope you are enjoying a well earned rest Mark.
