Giving the Round a Go

Aoife HenryMay 16 2021, 6:32pmHi friends,
I'm excited to give the Round a whirl on June 6th with my ever-supportive brother Patrick as my crew.
Really looking forward to enjoying/suffering some home peaks after living abroad for a few years. The support and enthusiasm I've received from once-strangers in planning this has reminded me why I keep coming home to this country!
Best of luck to everyone giving the Round a crack this Summer!

Aoife HenryJun 1 2021, 9:38amThank you everyone for all the support! I'm sorry to let ye down, but I've decided that nabbing the Irish Munros FKT (+ supported and self-propelled, so cycling between peaks) is my priority this summer, so I've reshuffled my planned shananigans to tackle that this weekend instead. I still hope to do the Round at some point, but I want to do it justice, and my training has prepared me better for the Munros than the Round at this point in time. I really appreciate all the advice and support - looking forward to seeing some of you out there in the future and to following this year's attempts!
Linda O'ConnorJun 2 2021, 8:29amBest of luck with that adventure Aoife, sounds epic :)
Peter O'FarrellJun 3 2021, 9:41amThe very best of luck Aoife. If I am reading your message correctly you are on for an amazing voyage - and may or may not require 120 figrolls if following Robbie Bryson's route.

Is there a tracker or a social media page where I can follow your progress?
Conor KeaneJun 3 2021, 9:44amThat sounds unreal, enjoy!
Lillian DeeganJun 4 2021, 9:00amGood woman Aoife - that sounds like an epic challenge. Every best wish with your FKT. Would love to see you back for the WR whirl at some stage too. Best of luck for the immediate. #GoTheGirls
Laura FlynnJun 5 2021, 9:36amBest of luck with that brave endeavour Aoife. Would love to track it...can we find you anywhere?
