We received a lovely email from a listener called Anna McGowan:

Hi Ray & crew,

This is the first time I emailed a radio show..But I feel so strongly about this that it needed a mention.

I am a runner like you Ray. I moved to Arklow in co. Wicklow about 5 years ago. I wanted to meet people so I asked about & heard about the amazing Mary Hickey. I joined her club & haven’t looked back since. I’ve made great friends & she has encouraged & helped countless people here in Arklow & the surrounding area to get out and about running.

She has done a huge amount of marathons & is the only woman to have completed every Dublin city marathon since the beginning. She also has done "Marathon de Sables" and a huge and uncountable amount of half marathons, 10ks etc.

At present , Mary at 65 years of age is running around the coast of Ireland for the RNLI. 

She started New Year’s Day & is still running.

She is relying on peoples hospitality for a bed for the night, food on the way & people to just jump in and run a few miles with her.
 
Ray, it would be great if you could give her a mention to get the word out there!

She has a facebook page where you can track her progress.
Thanks Ray, 

Anna McGowan
