Background (Reasons for attempting The Race)

I completed the inaugural staging of The Race in 2014, loved the experience and the fellow competitors but didn't enjoy the weather & said never again, but eventually, I decided to go back in 2015 to try to improve on that effort. In 2015, the weather was worse, I got lost trying to find Duchary at the end of the never-ending cycling stage, just about got finished, and enjoyed it less than the previous year. So I said, DEFINITELY NEVER AGAIN! But I looked on from afar with regret last year when a fine day occured. So for some strange reason I can't justify, I'm back for more punishment and aiming to improve, at least try to be under 23 hours,but to finish again anyway, regardless of whatever Donegal might throw at us.

Experience

The Race 2014 & 2015, a few marathons in prior years, a number of cycling sportives, a few adventure races (Quest Killarney, Galeforce West) & that's about it.
