An Irishman Abroad

Irishman Running Abroad with Sonia O‘Sullivan: ”What‘s Missing From Your Running Routine?: With Special Guest Niall Breslin”

September 14, 2021
Sonia gives Jarlath the raw and unfiltered truth on what most runners leave out from their running routine and why even the elite athlete rolls the dice not knowing exactly how much damage this can do. Currently travelling to the stadiums she used to dominate, Sonia explains to Jar how different it feels to be the coach this time around. We asked the club members for their running hacks and you're going to love some of the wild answers we received. "Directions Gate" rumbles on as Jarlath gets support from the heartless Michelle Guiney! There's even a chat with the ultra-sound Niall Breslin just 24 hours after he completed a ridiculous ultra marathon in aid of his charity Lust For Life.
