Jumping Barriers

May 15, 2013

We’ve hit the track running this week. No, not me, but my good friend and Keane’s very godly mother Derval O’Rourke. Its been lovely having Derv stay with us for the past 2 weeks. She’s really over here to do some early season racing but off the track she just so happens to be a phenomenal cook and has been dishing up some very excellent food for the entire Shinkins-Doyle household. In return for her appetizing nourishment, I have been offering up my coaching skills, limited as they are in the hurdles.

This is Nia Ali and Derval in the midst of a very intense training session early this week.

Keane has been working diligently on his walking skills and now feels confident and ready enough to take on a little hurdling of his own.

    Well that puts an end to the saying: must learn to walk before we can run. Little man has taken his first steps and he is already training for the hurdles
