Video Clip......Finish of the Ladies Marathon Race in Chicago, 2007......
No doubt there are a good few of you tapering down at the moment getting ready for the Dublin Marathon on the 27th. With this in mind, it seemed a good time to put up this video clip from the finish of the Ladies race in the 2007 Chicago Marathon. This however is no ordinary finish as you will see. As long as the race isn't over, there is always hope ;o)

Enjoy.........

"Don't think it is on youtube, but there was an even closer finish to the 2006 Dublin City Marathon for first Irish woman. Pauline Curley was clearly ahead, but picked up a bad injury with about a mile to go. She hobbled [literally] on but was reeled in about 10 yards from the line by Belfast's Jill Shannon.............AlanJoesphBurke"
