This year 2017, I happily went along to the mini marathon show out in the RDS. I enjoyed some free samples of food and wine. Then i collected my race number and goody bag and opted for the prepaid engraving of medals I hoped to obtain at the finish line. I decided more or less to go along with a friend of a friend, and enjoy the mini marathon. I choose to walk it this year and enjoy the day.
The weather was that of fresh typical Irish day- dull, cloudy with a light breeze. I was pleased about that. I had taken part in the marathon a good few years in hot sticky sun. I welcomed the cool temperatures. I might be the only one though! A lot of people enjoy sunshine and heat. I like a bit of sunshine but I prefer the cooler weather it seems. It did rain alot throughout the day especially at the close of the race.
I finished and collected the medal and brought it into the New Horizon hub to show off and for a small bit of chat maybe. I must check the newspapers for the results and online at the VHI site.
So far I gather I did it in over two hours 10 or 20 minutes that’s with two stops along the way there and back. I collected my medal and went for refreshments in town on Camden Street. Later when i got home I lit the stove and has a nice fire log to warm up, unwind and relax at home in peace. I hope you like reading this short piece.
