We caught up with Geraldine Heneghan this evening before our club’s weekly track session with trainer Matt Bidwell. It was an appropriate setting to present her with the trophy and prize she won at the Tuam 8k last Sunday. Like many, Geraldine has progressed through the Claremorris Fit4Life group and a couple of years ago she was finishing 8k races in 47/48 minutes. Now as one of the regulars at these track sessions over the past year she has made great strides and ran a 43:31 PB in the Streets of Galway 8k last August. The chilly breezy conditions at Tuam were not conducive to fast times – however, she came home first in her F55 category in 44:06. Well done, Geraldine!
