Running a Marathon


A few weeks ago, on October 29th, Daragh ran the Dublin Marathon again. He did it last year - his first ever marathon -and whereas his main goal then was just to finish in one piece, this year his aim was to improve on his finishing time of 4 hours and 9 minutes – so you can imagine how thrilled he was to finish in 3:47.59- a 21-minute improvement on last year!
