Dublin City Marathon


#81

You’re a waste of fucking space.


#82

Exactly. Each to their own.


#83

Would you cop on pal. Disabled people and even lads riddled with AIDS have managed to do 5 or 6 marathons


#84

Would you believe me if I told you I’ve no interest in ever doing one?

Anyway, more power to the lads who do them.


#85

You sound depressed. Running is good for depression.


#86

Neighbour of mine went from 24 to 15 stone and ran 2 marathons in the space of 18 months. He moved to bathingstoke and was kicked in the head by a horse. Lay in a coma for three weeks, regained consciousness for a few hours before passing. He said he only had one regret- running the stupid fucking marathons.


#87

I’ll do this next year allgoing well, I’d like to do a good time (about 3-30) and do a big one abroad before cutting back to the halves and under.
Well done to all yesterday’s finishers


#88

Thanks.


#89

Especially you mate, you’re my favourite runner


#90

I think I lapped you during the final lap of the pitch. That was me in the dms and boiler suit.


#91

The ballot for Berlin is open at the moment. It’s a great marathon and definitely worth a couple of minutes over Dublin.


#92

Was looking at the times of a chap I know from the TdeM and follow on Strava. Lovely pattern of times, all between 5:00 and 5:30 p/km. 35k and must have hit the wall. 4 miles to go, is that heartbreak hill?


#93

Once you hit 20 miles, the pain hits. Some call it hitting the wall. Personally just think lads have gone off a tad too quick and/or undertrained for distance.


#94

Sound


#95

Would you train for 30 miles?


#96

No, its a case of not having the mileage done. You would never do a long run over 2hr 50mins as counterproductive.


#97

Well done to all runners yesterday
I had an enjoyable few hours out supporting about a mile from the finish


#98

Two hours is the longest training run I ever did, and I’ve done a few marathons. You just have to dog it out, but it’s far from pleasant.


#99

But if you time will be around 4 hours, would you not do a 3+ hours run as part of your prep?


#100

Only a stupid bastard would waste all that time training for and then completing a marathon. It’s the carry on of attention seeking weirdos tbh.
