All aboard - Tymon Meet and Train Sunday 22nd Jan
Report courtesy of Hilary McGee

Round 2 of the Meet and Train league took place in picturesque Tymon Park, surrounded by the Dublin Mountains.

A hop, skip and a stone's throw from Lucan, the numbers certainly showed up to represent the club with success, 16 in total. Hosted by Sportsworld running club and refreshments provided on the day by Brothers Pearse Club, a culmination of teamwork to host 126 eager women, 25% more than the last event, the New Year effect perhaps!!

The Meet brought a few more members to the fore with Lucan fielding 16 runners. Orla McWeeney ran well from the off and moved into a top 10 position early on, eventually finishing 7th overall. Next came Lorraine Heffernan, fresh from her outing at the Dublin Masters, having a great start to the year. Mary Browne followed, having picked up a few places in the second lap. Anne Whelan in her second cross country in as many weeks finished soon after. Claire Joyce battled well to finish strongly. Ana Babu made light work of the course as did Sile Mc Intyre, in her first showing in the league, running with ease. Next to cross the line was Bernie Stapleton, who acquitted herself well in her first cross country in a few years in these parts, being a frequent runner at BHAA XC events in nearby Cherryfield Park! One place separated Lhyne Ganadin and Sinead Farrell, both relishing in cross country events of late. Aileen Coughlan ran consistently to finish her second race of the league showing no signs of fatigue. Olivia Meyler Thomas, enthusiastic as ever ran strongly to complete her second Meet and Train of the season. Anne McGrane captained and had a great finish, closely followed by Fiona Allen. Diane Argaud ran effortlessly to complete the 2 mile course as did Winifred Ryan smiling all the way!
