TRYatholon 01 May 2022, 07:45 – 12:00

If you’ve had your breakfast, just started to browse the web, and are reading this – it’s most likely too later for you to join in the fun.

Today, with registration starting at 07:45 am, we’re joining the kick-off event for the #IronMonth and sim, cycle, and run something akin to a super sprint triathlon – not in a competitive way, but in a way that even a complete novice can do at least part of the distances set on the various courses – all around Sports Campus Ireland.

When we went out last night to set up the signs it was lashing. I think that the rain will just add to the fun. Can’t wait to get started.

This day a week ago, Pádraig and I went to see Ed Sheehan, together with 82,000 enthusiastic fans.

The night was fabulous. While I don’t think that either of us are dedicated Ed Sheeran fans, I have never seen one man by himself entertaining 82,000 people just by himself. It was bordering on magic.

Please keep your fingers crossed for us – it would be nice if the rain held off for a few hours in the morning to allow for a good cycle and run.
