Dublin City Marathon


#101

Fucking height of self-indulgence. None of them will walk without pain after the age of 40 either. Anyone using that as a measure of toughness has a savage warped mind on them


#102

No, a lad big into running explained the logic to me before.


#103

Different strokes for different folks


#104

Running is basically drudgery. Two hours is plenty of training.


#105

#106

Is it like a horse that runs long distances, example a horse you are aiming at the Grand national say. You’d never train him to have ran four miles. First time he’d encounter it is in the race.


#107

Great analogy.


#108

If you really really really wanted to get word to the folks back in Athens, and the buses weren’t running, and you’re all out of horses, and pigeons hadn been invented, and you needed to be the big fella with the latest biz…then fair enough


#109

What if it was his second time running the national :thinking:


#110

Start him on the outside


#111

Signed up today. Fuck it, there’s at least one marathon in me.


#112

Its going to be a good one. 40th anniversary. Best of luck k with the training. We’ll have a pint after it


#113

Snap, just did it this evening as somebody mentioned they were in danger of selling out.


#114


#115

Signed up a few weeks ago.
Did 2017, so just keen to do one more.


#116

Signing in


#117

This breaks my heart - to see lads I care about do this to themselves :disappointed_relieved:


#118

Lets hope they see sense.


#119

Going for 5 in a row. An amazing thing.


#120

You’d want to have your head examined to do a marathon
