DFR News 26th Oct 2013

Hi all,

Hard to believe it’s Dublin marathon time again.
We’ll meet at the usual spot this Monday 28th from 10.30 onwards, under the bridge at the Luas green line Milltown stop.
Watch out for our DFRs taking part:
 
Eugene
Kieran T
Philip
Sandra
Seamus McL
Seamus M
Seamus S
Shane
and don’t forget to bring a supply of jellies as they’ll be sorely needed by the runners at mile 18!
Good luck to all.
Track training/fartlek
There’ll be no track session in Donore Harriers this bank holiday Monday 28 Oct.  Normal service will resume Monday 4 November at 19.00.  This subsidised event is for registered DFR members only for insurance reasons.
 
Christmas party
 
Bookings are essential, so please reserve and pay for your place as soon as possible. It’s on Saturday 14 December in Brasserie66 and cost is E40 per head.  You may of course bring a partner.  First come, first served.
Winter Circuits/Pilates
We haven’t had much interest expressed in running this over winter.  If you would like to take part in a say a six week block session, please email Club Secretary Kieran Cooney at dfrsecretary@gmail.com.
If there are insufficient numbers, we won’t be going ahead with it.
New members
The club continues to grow – we’re now at a record 140 –  and I’d like to say fáilte to the following new members recently formally registered with the AAI:
Damien
Fran
John K
Karin
Lou
Richard
Rob
Steven
Happy Halloween!

News 1st July

Dublin Pride Festival

imageHopefully everyone had a good day and night out; thanks to those members who marched behind the DFR banner or popped up around town to support.

Thanks especially to Kieran Cooney and Andy Chambers, our highly-trained official marshals who bravely put themselves in the firing line in case of any danger, and where very well accessorized.

We had fewer DFRs marching this year, so if anyone has any suggestions as to how DFR could better engage with or partake in Pride 2014, please let us know on the Committee.

Pilates

The summer course of pilates starts this Tuesday 2 July at 7pm in St Andrew’s Resource Centre, 114 Pearse St.

It’s E60 (no subsidy from DFR) for the six week course, payable up front, and don’t forget your mat and the application form.

Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire

Thanks to Kieran Cooney for organising this, contact him on dfrsecretary@gmail.com with any last-minute queries or interest.

Fartlek

Fartlek continues every Monday at 7pm at the Magazine Fort in the Phoenix Park.  Good luck to Anne Marie who’s leading the session this week!

Rock n Roll half marathon

Discounted entry for this race in Dublin on Monday 5 August (the bank holiday) expires tomorrow 1 July.  Sign up if you’re interested and we’ll look to enter a DFR Team.  So far, Seamus Moore, Dermot McCarthy and Declan Treanor have expressed an interest, so one more needed….

Achill half marathon

We’ve had a few late withdrawals from Achill so if anyone has a race number or accommodation to offer, please let the club know.

If anyone needs a lift over, or can offer a lift, please post on Facebook or email Rónán.

Summer Pilates 2013

Summer Pilates classes will commence on Tuesday July 2nd at 7pm in St Andrew’s Resource Centre on 114 Pearse St Dublin 2

http://www.standrews.ie/contact/directions.html

When you get there simply ask at reception and you’ll be directed to the exact room.

The cost of the 6 weeks course is €60-payable in advance- we need to pay this on the first night.

In addition you will need to complete the Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire to ensure that you are up to the physical exertion and bring it with you on the night.

We will need to bring our own yoga mats- these can be bought for as little as €2 in shops like Euro World so this should not cause a difficulty.

Thanks to Pat Lonergan for all his hard work in sourcing the instructor.
