In short:
After the horrors off the Boston / London double. #teamsole regrouped and entered Dublin. The target was a pb, anything sub 2:55:00. I only went and smashed it. 4min 18sec PB! Sound that PB klaxon. Great course, great people, very highly recommended as an Autumn marathon. It now makes the target for Tokyo 2019 (last 6 star) very tricky. Keep up the good work MT.

In short:
I've been dreaming of a sub 3 since my last one 2 and half years ago. Boston and London didn't go to plan this year but Dublin delivered after a summer of ultras and trail running. Its been a tough year and this has finished it off perfectly. Only 37 seconds off my PB on a much harder course. Couldn't be happier! TeamSole are definitely Dublin fans!

In short:
Three years ago. I came back to running after a 32 year break. My 60th birthday present to myself was running my hometown Marathon. Three years on I have completed 4 Marathons. On Sunday I set a lifetime PB beating by 3 seconds the time I set in 1984 (when I was 28). Dublin was great - very supportive crowds cheering on every runner.

Is beating a PB from 34 years ago a record? I was 28 in 1984 when I ran the Dublin Marathon in 3:45:59. On Sunday aged 62 I ran Dublin in 3:45:56.

In short:
Got a pb but know I could have done better if it wasn't for stomach problems and having a cold.

I was wondering if you could ask steve way what his exact meals are from 24 hours before the race. How what time he has them. Is it worth having more the day before and not having a breakfast?

In short:
An absolute shocker (in a positive way).

The plan was to get back in the sub-3 hour club again after melting in London in April. On a perfect Dublin autumnal morning the crowds turned out in numbers and the city looked great. I ran with a smile on my face throughout, loving every minute of this. One of those rare days when you feel you could run forever and then finish 26.2 miles and want to do it all over again. Shocked with the time, + 6 minute PB. Get in!

In short:
Lovely day in Dublin, a super crowd and a great way to see the city. Paced it slow and came in with a smile on my face!

In short:
Personal best and a new club record! So so grateful! In absolutely perfect running conditions, I had to dig deep from mile 20 with cramping in both legs but held on to knock 4 mins off the Craughwell AC marathon record. Trilled. Dublin is amazing as always

In short:
Another sub-3 opportunity lost but on the plus side nearly 8 min PB and GFA again!

In full:
Emergency physio in last week proved too close to race day. Legs not right but held out till mile 21 when the wheels fell off. Last 5 miles long slow & painful! Next time!

In short:
This was my first marathon and I loved every minute of it, actually didn’t want it to end. Although now (Tuesday after the Sunday marathon) my Tuesday legs are in proper agony!!!! The toilet is my nemesis and walking down the stairs backwards but I’m a marathoner so it’s totally worth it!!!
