A lot of you know Joe's story already. He's committed to running 10km every day for a year in aid of Crumlin Children's Hospital.
Joe's goal is ever closer. He started out on this mission on July 1st 2020 and now, over 3,500km later he's on the countdown to the end.
He was the perfect inspiration for Ms McBride's Sixth classes when they arrived in the Lourdes Stadium Drogheda to try out their running on the track there.
Our other inspiring guest was Mrs Olivia Bennett. Member of our Board of Management, founder member of Colmcille's Athletic Club and a familiar face at marathon meets, Olivia spoke to the boys about her athletic club and presented them with medals.
The medals acknowledged the boys own interest in running. Our Run Around Ireland initiative, organized by Mrs Byrne, saw Ms McBride's class win the coveted trip to the Lourdes Stadium.
They had lots of questions for Joe after he spoke to him about his year of adventures. Spinach and salmon and strength work are the secrets of his running success. After completing a warm up led my Olivia, he and the boys set out on a nice easy trot around the track.
Best of luck over the last few days of your running challenge Joe!
