Tuesday night's speed session in Loreto Park always has has a buzz about it with often up to 100 people doing intervals from 100m to 2k and everything inbetween, the chatter is ferocious in the recovery minutes and the long tempo people are there looping around and around in the backround. This Tuesday 16th May there was an extra buzz before training kicked off with a special presentation from the club to Seán Hehir in recognition of his fantastic achievement of qualifying for the marathon at the World Athletics Championships 2017 to be held in August in London. Following dissappointment last year after running the qualifying time but not being selected for the Rio Olympics, a determined Seán managed to up the ante this year to run a marathon PB to earn his qualification for the World Championships. Such dedication and determination is an inspiration to all athletes young and old. Best of luck to Seán in London. For anybody interested, a group from the club is heading over to support him and the rest of the irish marathon team running on August 6th. Ask at training if you want to join in!
