IMRA Howth run

I went for a run up around Howth with the IMRA (Irish Mountain Running Association). Kevin and some of his mates came along. All of them were faster than me! It was a lot harder and more dangerous than any of us expected. I think we were all about 20% slower than we estimated at the start. Despite being fairly experienced "flat" runners we knew nothing about hills. Anyway, we'll probably do it again because it was also great fun, there's nothing quite like reaching the top of a climb or charging down a narrow mountain path.

I almost caught the brother at the end, had I known he was only a half minute ahead I might have made a better push towards the end, maybe next time...
