Day 4: Skerries – Clogherhead (Louth)

After a good night sleep, I was up early getting focused on the journey ahead. Like all my other morning starts, I always begin my running from the location I end the night before. So Skerries RNLI station would be my starting point today.

My support team had organised an interview and filming with RTE News, so I knew that Eleanor Mannion (RTE News) would be around today.  When I arrived at Skerries I was once again taken aback by the number of people who were going to run with me today, Maeve was also going to join me.

Heading off from Skerries

Was absolutely delighted to see that a member of my running group from home (Arklow) joined me this morning, thanks a lot Lisa Mellon it was great running with you.

On the way

We had an extremely good start to our run, the weather was calm and the views of the still sea where amazing. Unfortunately when we got as far as Balbriggan, the weather started to turn (rain and wind). Maeve had to leave us on the other side of Balbriggan, but the Balbriggan Runners were waiting to join us.  I always tell the crew at home, running with company makes running easier (especially when the weather is against you).

Myself and Lisa continued on the journey, we somehow missed a group of runners in Drogheda who were hoping to run with us.

The approach to the lovely Clogher head was stunning the sun came out and the welcome as warm as the send off from Skerries at the start of the day.

Another 23.5 miles completed today, thanks to Derek Shevlin and family for looking after me tonight. Good night everybody, back on the road tomorrow.
