DOHERTY WINS ANGLO CELTIC PLATE 2013
I'm absolutely thrilled for my Irish team mate Dan Doherty who yesterday won the Anglo Celtic Plate in a personal best time of 7.05:24.
Dan was representing UltraRunning Ireland as an individual and won the race outright just as I did last year.It is a fantastic achievement for Irish athletes to win back to back titles especially against such stiff opposition.
Dan has been in flying form of late and won quite a few races in the lead up to the event,and well and truly delivered yesterday in Scotland.
Dan and myself are hoping to be selected for the European 100km Championships later this month in France.
If there was ever a year in which Ireland can win it's first ever team medal at a major championships in ultra running this is that year.
