Normally, on Christmas Day I get to duck out of setting the table by going swimming in the Atlantic. This started as a fund raising event for local charities but is now just an excuse to drink whiskey on the beach before noon.
Last year I couldn’t make the beach because the roads were all frozen so I decided to run the Goal Mile.
Which was also cancelled.
I ended up on the Farm (local off-road running circuit in Cork) crunching around the virgin snow on my own.
I did get his nice photograph out of it though.
