We had a great workshop with Liz Egan yesterday evening. Liz led us through some practical exercises with key life skills of goal setting, prioritising and planning. It was superb to have a mix of our youth, senior and masters members learning together.
These were a great complement to the workshop by Karen Weekes in February on applying the mind to maximum effect. The planning templates and advice sheets are available here for all.
All at Galway City Harriers were saddened to hear of the tragic death last weekend of Chris McGrath, a recent member of city club GCH.
Chris had competed with the club since juvenile days in the 1990s, and was a very talented and committed athlete who won numerous titles at Juvenile level. In recent years he competed at cross country and road races at regional and National level for GCH and Galway county. A terrific win at the Connacht Intermediate Cross Country in St Marys in 2012 and a top 50 National senior cross country finish in Tullamore in 2013 were among the highlights of his career. Chris was a hugely keen, enthusiastic, talented and very competitive runner who always gave his best...
Congrats to Cillian Jordan who had an outstanding run in Mallusk Co. Antrim yesterday to finish 8th in the Junior Boys competition at the All Ireland Schools Cross Country Championships securing his place on the Irish team for an upcoming Schools International Competition. Cillian was representing St Enda's Secondary School.
Barry Murphy and Eoghan Jennings ran fine races also in the Junior Boys race with Barry finishing in 17th and Eoghan in 29th position.
