21k Ulysses

    Stately, plump Buck Mulligan came from the stairhead, bearing a bowl of lather on which a mirror and a razor lay crossed. A yellow dressinggown, ungirdled, was sustained gently behind him by the mild morning air. He held the bowl aloft and intoned:
—Introibo ad altare Dei.

James Joyce. Ulysses (Page 3)


This is the first of the four half marathon routes that I devised and ran starting on Bloomsday 2014.

The run starts at the Tower in Sandycove and runs northwards to Glasnevin Cemetery going through Dublin City Centre.

You can see a detailed description in the writing section here.
