It may not feel like May weather just yet, but rumour has it that the warmer days are just around the corner. This month we write to you from Limerick where we are down here supporting the Great Limerick Run. The celebrations are well underway now as the runners enjoy the rewards for their hard training. Check out our photos from our Roadtrip to Limerick.

Since our last newsletter

So much has happened since our last newsletter. We finished off March with lots of our new runners completing their first 5k in parkrun and also at the wonderful St Patrick's day 5k. We have had great success stories from our runners at home and abroad - from Canada to Sydney. So many photos, but here are just a few.

We have been busy with lots of corporate classes and workshops in companies around Dublin, presented at the Totally Dublin Live Well Event and have kicked off our season of workshops with the lovely Sloggers to Joggers in Swords.

We have been filming pregnancy yoga videos with the lovely Ruth from EatLiveSmile and also getting marathon ready for all our summer marathon programmes.

Thinking of Dublin Marathon? 
April was a wonderful month for our marathon runners as we had runners far and wide taking part in marathons from Paris to Rome, Boston to Connemara.

If this has inspired you to run Dublin Marathon this year, our Dublin Marathon Coaching kicks off in June and booking is now open. Could this be your marathon year?????    
No time to run? 
Maybe its a busy time for you right now, but we all still do have 2 minutes a day we can take for ourselves. Come join us this May, from the comfort of your own home and join our challenge.
Last chance for Chirunning
Mary will teach just 3 more Chirunning Workshops in the coming weeks before she takes a break for the summer and next workshops will be late autumn/winter. So if you have been keen to join one of these €25 Chirunning Classes, don't miss out on these upcoming dates.
