Hi Nollaigh!

I've been to Playitas this September together with my mother. As I paid you a compliment for your Stretch & Relax class you told me that you were a professional distance runner and that you won the Lanzarote Marathon. Maybe you remember me (I have long, brown, curly hair and we were standing by the poolside)?

First of all congratulations to your impressive performance in Dublin!

You said that this year you're invited to defend your title and I just want to wish you good luck for this mission! And I hope that you and your daughter are going to have great fun attending togehter! I will follow your results and hopefully see you angain next September! Guess you found a fan in me... :)

Keep on going!

Eva


P.S.: "Meticulously precise" is the expression I was searching for in order to describe your stretching class. As a German I'm not sure how that sounds to a native speaker but I mean it in a very positive way! We totally enjoyed it!
