The 11 guilt-ridden stages of not running a Bank Holiday marathon

There ain’t nothing MINI about our guilt, wha?

DEALING WITH MINI-MARATHON guilt is as exhausting as running the thing. Don’t even talk to us about the Cork marathon.

Remember, it’s not a sprint.

1. Waking up past 12

The runners are all out stretching in their tracksuits already and you’re turning over in bed. The only marathon you’ll be doing today is taking place on Netflix.

2. Reading all about it

Facebook is full of smiley faces in sponsored t-shirts, Twitter is full of good wishes. Fair play to them all now, grand weather for it.

3. Thinking you should have done it

You could have TOTALLY done it if you wanted to. You missed registration and all that sure.
