AM - 6 miles from the hotel in Killarney - took a slightly different route into the National Park - and through some woods toward the Muckross House that we toured yesterday.   Nice running/cycling path and beautiful scenery.   Running a bit faster in the last few miles this week - perhaps because the routes have been relatively flat, and the Achilles is at least more flexible as it warms up.  Heading up the western coast later today to see the cliffs of Moher before heading back to Dublin later tomorrow to complete our clockwise circle of Ireland.

AM - 5.5 miles in County Clare on the west coast of Ireland along the Atlantic.  Very different landscape here than in County Kerry yesterday only about 2 hours away.  Windswept rural with cattle and wind turbines but very green in picturesque all the same.  Another run with a faster finish completely unplanned.

AM - just under 6.2 miles in Dublin.  Last full day here before a mid morning fight home tomorrow.  We've had a really nice stay exploring this country.   Good weather, interesting scenery and friendly people.   This morning's run started well but I made some disappointing turns and it was not as nice or scenic as the first half.
