This couple posed for me as they walked along the Waterloo Road. I’d venture to say he probably ran the half marathon in less than 90 minutes.
We chatted for a few minutes near the finish line while runners streamed past. He finished in 1hr 26mins. Next time I’m bringing a notepad and a pen to get names!
Two lads well on the way to recovery after the half marathon in Blarney. Under the scorching sun I don’t know how they managed to run it in 1hr 35mins!
The annual Blarney Half Marathon was held yesterday under a blistering sun. Ireland enjoyed a week of superb weather and yesterday could have been the hottest. The race started at 11am and runners followed a course around Blarney, finishing on Waterloo Road sometime after noon. I have nothing but admiration for those guys. All I wanted to do was sit in the shade an enjoy a cool drink! More photos to come tomorrow.
