Dublin City Marathon


#121

Absolute weirdos


#122

I think the worse thing about this sorry activity is that it can sometimes inconvenience me getting around Dublin of a bank holiday weekend.


#123

Sure we can’t all be whipping horses around a field to make paddy power and Johnny ladbroke richer


#124

Good point


#125

I thought Kev has proved how dangerous this activity is?


#126

You think it’s normal behaviour to travel 26 miles on foot?


#127

about as normal as a small gentleman hunting a horse over 3 miles, jumping large obstacles


#128

Millions of people all over the world do it, human beings have been travelling long distances in foot forever, it’s one of the reasons we’ve evolved as we have,

I think the horse whipping for the benefit of the gambling industry is weird myself, each to their own I suppose


#129

They’re both very strange in fairness


#130

Lads flogging horses and lads flogging themselves - very weird.


#131

The sense of clarity when you finish is amazing (the inability to walk properly for a few days is a slight downside).


#132

Some might say its easy to have clarity when there’s little or no oxygen gone to your brain for the past 4 hours and you’re down about 50% of your brain cells.


#133

I’d imagine those few seconds are nice alright, in the same way a prisoner would be quite happy when he is released from prison


#134

Oirish people Arguing about the managerial talents of Paul Clement takes some beating .


#135

Ah it’s a strange preoccupation alright, I’d like to do one at home and one big one abroad. If my training goes well I’d say I shouldn’t be far off the qualifying time for Boston, that’s a target anyway. I wouldn’t do it just to say I did.
But I couldn’t bring myself to whip a horse around a field


#136

I always thought marathons were odd but they’re not really.

At least you’re only inflicting pain on yourself when doing it.


#137

Inflicting a bit of pain on the usual suspects here as well in fairness but that’s just a bonus


#138

some really fresh banter here, great to see


#139

Where with the TFKers meet up for a scoop afterwards? O’Donoghues?


#140
