Dublin city Marathon quick summary

I’m back home after 170 miles of driving,

4 hours shopping in Ikea with 3 children


the 2010 Dublin City Marathon.

And in reverse order.

I’ll do the detailed race post later in the week once I get a chance (the beer is chilling in the fridge as I type)

Here are the highlights:

First 8 miles 1:00:00

Halfway – 1:38:xx

16 miles 1:59:00

20 miles 2:28:28

24 miles 3:00:00

26.2 miles – 3:18:18

The Garmin had me down for 26:38 miles. (7:31 min/miles)

I’ll do the mile by mile later and the pre-race and post race build up.

For the support of my wife and kids I’m thankful but the trip to Ikea afterwards was not something I had fully bargained for.

  1. 2 marathons in 1 day ! well done again. seems like pretty even splits – despite the last few miles! looking forward to the blow by blow

  2. Good to talk to you before the start and even better not to catch up with you during the marathon. Just call the Ikea trip a cool-down.
