Somehow I managed to miss the race description:
"This will be a far tougher version of the traditional Hellfire race(hence the Brimstone!!)..."Thankfully Ben Crane returned to the Leinster League, with a solid run. With Vivian and Ruth cheering on, I managed a strong finish and overtook most people in the final stretch, but it was a salutary warning not to be complacent in your training or lose your focus during races.
On the plus side (though nothing to do with running) Colleen Marlow has a new website, where you can find (and buy) her beautiful art.
