Brilliant stuff, sounds just like how Paris went for me, loving the first 20 miles then cramping up, dehydrating and limping over the line in near tears!

Butterfly's are kicking in now for Dublin...hopefully won't be (as) painful for the last 6 mile!!

I'd plenty hydration and they had isotar drinks all the way round, latter stages bananas too, so on reflection I lost it in the head I think, I'd cramp on the 35km mark but I was still able to have a quick (quicker than last 4km) final last 1km which I think once I seen that sign I started running quicker!!

For me if I were thinking of another one I'd train differently and take on board the mistakes I made leading up to the race and during it!! Chasing 3.30 was foolish and led to me possibly faltering earlier than I would have...

I changed plan during race because my body told me different! I wouldn't do that again!

I've about 5/6 friends all heading for Dublin, one girl on her 4th marathon in a year, London Belfast Cork and now Dublin!! And she broke a bone in her foot a couple of weeks after Cork! Fecking nuts!

Another poor spectacle. Tough on the 18 year old keeper to concede a goal like that.  Rashford limped off tonight the injuries are mounting up with Pogba, Bailly, Fellaini, Carrick, Zlatan already out.

Apparently Utd don't have any injuries!

Poor display but 3 wins in a row 9 points and all but secured top place..

if Dublin get their top players onto the squad they'll be a match for anyone in the league

Fixed that for you there.

Still loads of work to be done with Dublin hurlers before they'll be considered serious championship contenders.

Still behind the likes of Limerick, Clare and Wexford IMO.

Wexford? I know they have a couple of top hurlers but Dublin playing in a higher league has to count for something? That said, Galway have done alright! :o

So did Amsterdam Marathon at the weekend, 22 degrees and 53 thousand runners, course record at 2.05, not me! I've been to a few sporting events but I've not seen a city put on an event like this, I'm sure London and New York Berlin and Paris have cracking marathons but I've not actually witnessed them other than on TV but to experience it while doing it is something else..

As for the race my prep could have been so much better, I'd done one long run and plenty short runs but didn't stick to any plan... got to Amsterdam on the Friday night with family and didn't have a beer! But the in laws came on the Saturday and we all did the touristy stuff, involving lots of walking and eating shite!

Indonesian restaurant that night, bottle red and two beers at bar in Dam square!! But I was in bed for 10.30, decent sleep and ready for race at the Olympic stadium for 9.30 start....

As you way in the place is banging with typical Dutch techno! Whistles going and its a bit like a rave...

Plan was simple race my own race and stick to the pace I'd been running with.. running at about 8min miles or 5.05 min per km I was feeling strong, caught the 3.40 pacers at about the ten mile mark ran on by them still feeling strong around the 16/17 miles I thought I could see in the distance the 3.30 lads... but the wheels came off at 35km marker, cramp stiffness and the last five miles the pacers past me and I was in reverse...

Fighting with myself mentally to finish! Last km was a huge struggle but once I got near stadium I picked up pace to sprint the last few hundred metres to finish on chip time 4 hours dead on !!

To say I was emotional is an understatement... I'll never underestimate the difficulty of doing a marathon again.. can't see me entering  again but I won't dismiss it but will learn from my mistakes or ignorance possibly of how demanding it is!

Good luck to any of the Dub runners on their race coming up

3 deaths, 350,000 houses without electricity isn't exactly "nothing".
How may deaths if we had full on daily business and lorry traffic, commuter travel and countless thousands of schoolkids and students all out and about?
And it was bloody bad in Southern parts and Salthill of course.

I don't know? How many? We still have clampits out kite surfing, swimming off Salthill pier and walking up mountains putting more people at harm (emergency services)

So now the add ons are 350,000 without electricity! f**k give it up! Been plenty storms where electric goes out, but hey, it comes back on again! Living out in the sticks you'd have thought you boys would be used to no electric

The reason the schools are closed is simple! They aren't aware if there is any damage at schools so collectively they closed them all to assess if there is damage and get it sorted... there are some areas down with electric but that's happened before...

The over reaction is based purely on how the weather is now, not how it was predicted... people dying has not been joked about or anything else other than grief for their families, but the usual suspects who have an agenda of sorts (god only knows what) will pick on something and make that their bee in their bonnet!

Yes but up here there has been far worse windy days, and schools are closed two days, which I've no problems with, business closed for the day, but someone making jokes about how the wind is not that bad has the PC police up in arms is just stupid, and using three people dying (which no one has made fun of) as a means to post is daft

Yeah if he or anyone made jokes about someone dying then yes... but if I say I've hurled in worse (as up here it's not that bad) then it's in poor taste? Wise up
