Middle Aged Men Run Half Marathon Shocker

Belfast Marathon 2020 training started in earnest today as my brother in law, Gearard and I, slogged out a 13.1 mile training run. Five loops of the village, no less. We maintained a steady space throughout with a few pit stops along the way to refuel on liquids and gels. Fionnuala made sure we were well fed afterwards so the calorie intake made up for all those we burned off on the road. Less than five months now to the big race. Yikes.

We are Stephen and Fionnuala and this is our story. We live in Northern Ireland, have been married for 17 years and have three kids - Adam, Hannah and Rebecca. We hope that our story will inspire and encourage others. We have walked a rocky road yet here we are today, together and stronger than ever. We are far from perfect and our faith has been battered and bruised. But an untested faith is a pointless faith. Just as a fractured faith is better than none at all. We hope you enjoy the blog.

  1. Wow! Good for you! Iโ€™m a keen runner but the idea of a marathon is…. …hmm… Very impressed! Keep us updated with the training – motivating and inspiring to hear how others get on and might remove my fears a little! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ˜˜


  2. Keep running, being persistent is the key. So says I from the depths of my armchair. My son is a jogger and enters marathons and half marathons.


  3. Well done! You ran 21km mate, I can barely do 5km without a few short wheezing walks in between. You’re my new inspiration for my 3 days a week jog. ๐Ÿ™‚
