Newry Marathon 2009

27 May

Thought I should give Dad a shout on completing his first marathon. After captaining Dromore to a successful defence of their relay crown a case of shin splints struck which severely disrupted training and nearly ruined Rev.David McCullough’s chances of competing in his hometown marathon but last Monday he ran through the pain barrier and the 26 gruelling miles.

To be honest I think he was ripped-off with the £24.99 new Nike warm-up gear

I got slightly carried away with Dad’s big camera and fancied myself as a sports photographer
