Congrats JS4 and SB on the races.

I'd like to show some empathy here, but you're faster than anyone I know and would win most of the 5K's I've been in. Don't be so hard on yourself, you're pretty damn fast.

That's awesome to do on your own with no crowd, water stations, or support. I don't know much about the details other than what I have read, but a real pain for you and others that signed up. Those that traveled must have been really pissed.
I apologize in advance if this post is long or too many pics.
Couple pics from running in Ireland:
This batch is from the marathon. 14K+ registered. Pic 1&2 are ahead of me at start and behind at start. This is wave 2 of 3 total that started 10 minutes apart. Pic 3 is a little part of town that people just came out to cheer to for us around the middle of the turn. Pic 4 is about 1/2 to 1 mile away from the finish. Grainy pic, but after running that far, it was a quick spin around. Awesome crowd support. Never seen anything like it.

The next set of pics is from the Killarney National Park. If you ever get a chance to run or walk around in there, do it. Was like running in a movie or some kind of fairy tale. Most beautiful place I've ever run. The pics from my I-phone won't do it justice, but you get an idea. No where near the quality of the rest of the pics I got with the good camera, but can't run with that camera. It was still a bit dark out. Most are just on the path that I took through a field, stream, wooded area. Couple of awesome looking trees. The last 2 pics are where you turn around to go back. They are together. Ross Castle is the name and it is right on the lake.Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Thanks for looking.
