Another instalment of the GCH Dublin Marathon story for 2017 , thanks to Culan O Meara for another great piece of writing on his superb run this year.. 'Where to start? The emotion of the day, the crowds, the amazing support from GCH along the route and the afterglow! It still makes me smile. The best running experience of my career was a long time in the making, both physically and mentally. From running laps of the town as 'training' back in school in the 80's and 90's, doing triathlons with Galway Tri, the cross-country outings and the Cathedral runs.
