Anyone doing it this year? I used to do them and want to get back into it now. I'm not sure if I'll do it in Dublin or somewhere more local to me.

was thinking about the dublin one alright, but have had back problems at the best and not sure that running is a very good plan. How did you get on before? am reasonably fit but haven't done much running, don't know that i'd have enought time to train at this stage.

I'm fairly fit and was very sporty a few years ago so did a couple of minimarathons. I really enjoyed them, there's such a buzz. I had gotten out of sports for a couple of years but am getting back into it now, going to the gym and swimming. I don't have the stamina back that I would have had for running before so hope that setting this goal will give me the incentive to work at it.

I do it every year, although each year I say never again because of the crowds but they did have it more organised last year for people who want to run competively but are not able to get into the elite athlete section. The BUPA 10k is also on in the Phoneix Park on 09/04/06, it will be my first race since the NYC marathon in November so I am looking forward to it.

Fair play to you Sligo06, I'm not quite in that league of fitness where I'd want to be with the elite crowd but quite like the chilled out aspect of the crowd. My h2bs a Sligo native, you from the county or town?

I just really love me running and hate being boxed in between walkers. I am from Easkey, County Sligo.
