First of all:
The Four Courts Four Miler was a really fun, if slightly challenging race. It's an out and back course, which starts and ends with a fairly steep, nearly mile long hill. D didn't find it that challenging, but it was all I could do not to swear during that final steep uphill to the finish. I foresee another racing photo of me wincing in agony...
