MY BIGGEST FAN!

MY SON JAMES WHO IS BY FAR MY BIGGEST FAN!

Monday was my first time running the Womens Mini Marathon in Dublin and I have to say it was a tough one. It was a very wet and miserable day and too be honest I don’t think my poor runners will ever recover.

Its so heartwarming to see so many women running, jogging and walking in an effort to raise money for causes close to their hearts. I ran for WIMS – Walk in my Shoes which is a cause close to my heart. Tamara Downey, communications manager for St. Patricks mental health services, ran with me and I was so glad she did because I needed her support towards the end of the race!!

I was thrilled to meet Sinead Kane who was running alongside her guide John O’Regan. I recently wrote about Sinead here https://alisoncanavan.com/news-and-events/inspiration-sinead-kane-runs-wing-for-life-race-in-brazilia-and-shows-us-all-if-you-can-dream-it-you-can-do-it/ for the Wings for life world run which she ran with John in Brazil. She won in her category on Monday and is such an inspiration!!
