The Battle continues. Again, Killian McMorrow prevailed by 45 seconds after surging ahead on lap 3.

More importantly, brilliant runs at BHAA Tymon XC yesterday by Jean Wilson who ran a fantastic last hill to claim 3rd. Super finish by Phil Kilgannon to claim second in the men’s race. Also lots of really good runs by Aileen Melody and Majella in her first BHAA race in a long time. Great running by Caitriona who flew up the last hill. Paul Duffy, as ever was gliding over the mud. Philip Kerr, who got to bed at 4, still left us Vets for dust.
Great up front running by Gareth Murran too whose biggest dilemma was choosing which shoes to wear!

Eoin O’Brien put in a sterling run too and everyone dis their club proud.Great to see ex Chairman, Paul O’Connell, still (really) running the BHAA show (he should be kidnapped for our own race). A brilliant run by Jim, husband of Breda Browne.

Finally, to my ill adversary Stephen Willoughby thank you for your helpful shouts at the right points on the course. Lovely to see Ellen and Breda out cheering us on even though they couldn’t race today. As for the picture? If you look closely you can just see Killian say “Cheerio Conor”
Thank you to everyone for making a January morning memorable
