Dublin City Marathon 2005, Dublin, Ireland. October 31, 2005

My worst ever marathon. Sub-par training, injuries including piriformis, jet lag - it all added up :-( Still, I had a lot of fun and I ran so slow that my legs were not even sore the next day.

Walking to the start Waiting to begin in the pouring rain. Taken on the run. Chicken little: the sky indeed is falling!
There were mats like this all along the course for split times Phoenix Park - the largest urban park in Europe More Phoenix park Pleasant scene - hardly know you're in a city
Ireland signature: a rainbow Ubiquitous pubs And equally ubiquitous churches Another pub
The 20 mile mark and many are reduced to walking Main thoroughfare leading to Centre City Dublin The M1 I believe There are an amazing number of palm trees in Ireland
