    Story

    On Sunday 28th October 2018 I will be running the Dublin City Marathon 🏃‍♂️💨

    This will be my 4th Dublin Marathon and the 1st one which I will be fundraising for. I'm not a big fan of asking people for money but having completed the previous marathon's, people often asked "who I was running it for?" I'm currently following my own 16 week marathon training plan & am aiming for a time around 3hr 15mins.

    If your reading this please take two mins & contribute towards my goal.

    I have chosen 'Teconnaught Cross Community Pre-School' because my two eldest children have attended the school and I feel they carry out a fantastic job with the young people within our surrounding community.

    They are a registered charity & depend on fundraising to provide the best start for our pre-school aged children so please follow me in supporting them and donate today. Their BiG goal is an outdoor educational play area which will cater for the surrounding area.
    Your donation will be greatly appreciated by me and will make a big difference toward them.

    Thank you. Dermot :-)

      Dublin Marathon - So delighted to reach my sponsorship target of £1000 for my local pre-school and to do it with a near 6 minute personal best made it even sweeter! It was a great day today and I'm delighted with how it went especially when it got really tough going from mile 20. It was a matter of trying to keep focused and with the help and support throughout (including the family fan club) I completed it in 3hrs 12 mins and 4 seconds! Big mention for my friend Phillip who I stuck with for 19 miles and whose coaching & coaxing helped!

      In one week I'll hopefully be writing my update having successfully completed the Dublin Marathon 2018. The last 16 weeks of marathon training as well as running regularly going back to Dec is completed and all I can do now is to wait, do a few easy runs this week and get to the start line! I'm delighted to say I've nearly reached my target goal of fundraising and I'm sure I'll not only reach it but smash it over the next couple of weeks. I'll be sure to post up some of the photo's from Dublin once they become available! Thanks again Dermot!

      2 weeks to go!! The dreaded taper training has started. To explain more the taper is basically cutting right down on your miles to preserve energy for the big day. A lot of people inc myself find this difficult as your used to running so much to now cutting right back and only doing minimal runs. I'll still do some hard work but really the hard training has been done it's now refuel, recover and get to the start line in one piece. Have raised over 50% of my target so thank you all. To think it'll all be over in 2 weeks time. Roll on!!
