An occasional series - the personal musings of a novice runner.

[acidfree:2607 title=" " align=right size=80]My memories of the Los Angeles olympic games in 1984 are hazy enough (it is almost 26 years ago after all and I'm not that old!), but, I do have much clearer memories of RTE broadcasting the official documentary film of the 23rd olympiad entitled "16 Days Of Glory" late one Friday evening in 1988 before the Seoul olympic games commenced.

Now, through the power of YouTube, this truly wonderful IOC documentary is available to all.

[acidfree:3407 title=" " rotate=right size=90 align=right]In case you missed it (and let's face it, a television programme that goes out at 0:35 on a "school night" is hardly targeted at a mainstream audience), Paul Fallon has been good enough to pass on a link to the Running To The Limits documentary which went out on Channel 4 last Tuesday night. This is well worth viewing for any aspiring or even veteran marathon runner.

The Coleraine Report

All-Ireland Uneven Age Cross-Country Coleraine.
Unfortunately this event will be remembered not for the great performances of many athletes but for the total incompetence of the organising club & the officials in running the event. From the minute we entered the University of Ulster campus we were met by a sense of confusion & lack of planning. There was nobody directing traffic towards car parks, registration or changing rooms, however they were collecting the €10.
