This is Johnny Collins. Johnny ran his first Dublin Marathon at age 53 in 1984 and has repeated the feat every year since then. He says this year will (probably) be his last one and will be joined on the start line by his daughter and grandson, as well as other members of the Country Club AC, Co. Limerick.
He credits his longevity in the sport to looking after his body and not overdoing things, but does not deny himself the few pints of Guinness when the occasion demands it.
Kinda makes you feel bad for putting off that little 5k, doesn't it?
