They run 8 graded meets throughout the summer around Dublin. But summer in Ireland doesn’t always match up to expectations.Sometimes it windy, sometimes it’s wet but occasionally the weather gods play nice and you have the perfect conditions. Last Wednesday was graded number 7 and the conditions were close to perfect in Santry stadium.
First up on the track was Margaret with her new love the 400m. The women’s grades can be a bit more difficult as there aren’t as many competitors. Margaret continues to improve running a solid PB of 68 seconds.
Next up was Justin in the 400m. Justin decided to double down and run 2 races. In the 400m he ran a solid 65 seconds. In the 1500m he was joined by masters indoor medalist Martin. The lads ran well with Martin finishing very strongly in his last few laps . Martin ran an excellent 4.38 with Justin not too far behind in 4:54.
Gareth was the last race of the night. Making the move up to the A standard 1500M. Going out hard he ran a solid 65 seconds for each lap. Finishing in 3rd place he ran a new PB in 4.05:03.
There was great support from the club with Emily and lots more shouting from the sidelines.
