Chris Chooses Life; Edinburgh’s Great Expectations; Sonia’s Training Secrets; Podcast
It’s our first podcast of the New Year, and we ring it in by first discussing the inspirational tale of one Cork man who had the balls to follow his dream, all the way to the high hills of Ethiopia.
As 2015 gets into full swing, the hottest action of the international scene is in Scotland this weekend, and we tell you why you should choose life and tune into BBC this Saturday as some of Ireland’s best take on the world in Edinburgh, even if the biggest star of all is out because he’s sick and tired.
We discuss Ronan Duggan’s recent column on our site which questioned the funneling of road race cash away from the grassroots of the sport, and ask what needs to be done to benefit the sport. We also review the training of Sonia O’Sullivan as a junior, which was shared exclusively on our site last week. Finally, we look ahead to the start of the indoor season, which kicks off with some great action in Athlone this weekend.
We also tell you about our new partnership with Runways, and why it’s worthwhile to pay them a visit for your next pair of running shoes.
