Welcome to a blog series called “Why do you run?“. I hope to publish inspiring insights from runners I know, on why they started running and continue to do so.
How do I know Brendan? This man is like a brother to me. I’m known Brendan for years and always try to catch up when I’m back home.
Some of my first memories of Brendan is him running 16 miles out along country roads, and past my house. I used to think he was absolutely crazy.
I’ve also watched him participate in triathlons down at Daft Eddy’s, which is a wonderful spot for a pint if you’re ever in Ireland.
These days, he’s not as active as he used to be, but still enjoys getting out for a run. 🙂
Why did you start running?
Started when I was 11 at school , so I could compete , then joined a running club in the town . So very social.
What keeps you motivated?
Now more thinking of my health.
What is the most important thing you’ve learnt as a runner?
Balance with enjoyment is important.
If you couldn’t run, what would you do instead?
What’s your biggest running goal?
Just run regularly.
