From trail runs in Howth to a TV appearance, May has been an eventful month at ForgetTheGym.

Summer at ForgetTheGym is the time when everyone is jealous of our 'job' as running coaches. There is nothing like the great outdoors this time of the year and we are making the most of it.

Since our last newsletter
So much has happened since our last newsletter.  So many photos and memories, but here are just a few. We had races from parkruns to marathons and lots of fun at classes and workshops.

We also started our summer series pop-up classes from Strength and Conditioning to a glorious trail run in Howth. Read about our alternative Friday night out in Howth.

Here is a taster of what we were up to this May..
