Lilliput RHYTHM 5K

Well done to Michelle Howard & Suzanne Miley who took part in the Bressie RHYTHM ( Running helping you to healthy mind) 5km a day in January challenge. On the last Sunday of the month there is a 5K organised down in Lilliput and Bressie comes down and gives a talk on Mental Health. Unfortunately Suzanne could not make it to Lilliput but still did the challenge. Michelle & Brian Howard went down to run the Lilliput 5K. Michelle & Suzanne finished off their 5K challenge with our Couch to 5K group down at Portlaoise track on Tuesday night.


Couch to 5K Update

All groups now have their fourth week over them and they are just half way there, some are finding it hard at this stage but their new training partners and mentors are helping them along. Well done to all who are taking part. It is a great achievement by all.
