I made a late call to head out to Newcastle near Athenry to watch the first race of this year's 5km series. Conditions were pretty poor - windy and wet and upon arrival I ran a few kms on the course before heading down to the finish to watch the closing stages of the race.
Quite a few people were commenting on whether I had missed the start of the race - but I had no intention of racing as the legs still aren't ready. Good to see these races from a spectators perspective and just the motivation I need to get fired up for the next race in the series which happens to be in Claregalway. Handy Arry.
I finished up chatting with a few people before running the guts of the course to get a few more kays in. All up 10.6km in 47:11.
