While, his wife Melissa is a personal trainer and coach offering multi-sport and triathlon programs.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Patrick told the Limerick Post this week that the pair were excited about their visit to Ireland for the Great Limerick Run and has even convinced some Irish relatives, renowned in their own sporting fields, to take part in the event.“We always look forward to our trips home to Ireland but we are especially looking forward to this trip as I know I have recruited 12 to 20 cousins and friends to run,” Patrick enthused.Patrick’s grandmother Katherine Mary nee Loughnane was born in Feakle and the running coach is organising a big family reunion to coincide with his Limerick visit.“I have a number of Loughnane cousins that live in and around Limerick. Olive Loughnane, four time Irish Olympian, will be at the reunion and, although I have not seen him in years, there is hope that my second cousin, Ger Loughnane, will be there,” he revealed.Savage has an extensive coaching background in the Chicagoland area and also remains active in the Illinois running community. He served as the head race referee for the 2006 and 2007 Chicago Marathon, and head men’s referee in 2008.Asked if he had any tips for runners taking part in the Great Limerick Run on May 4, he commented, “They need to do the training for whichever race they choose to run. Running hills in practice is very good preparation for any race as is getting in the long runs. Another important factor is dressing for the weather and taking liquids during the race.”For more details log onto Print Advertisement WhatsApp #SaucySoul: Room 58 – ‘Hate To See You Leave’ New Music: 40Hurtzlast_img read more

The Werks, Papadosio, Aqueous And More To Raise The Bar At Winter Werk Out

first_imgThe Werks will throw their second annual Winter Werk Out on February 2nd and 3rd at Columbus, Ohio’s The Bluestone. While psychedelic jammers are best known for their annual summer Werk Out, the winter version of the festival gives the band an opportunity to get physical and flex their musical muscles. This year, the stacked lineup will see both The Werks and Papadosio perform both nights. (Check out ticket information for the 2018 Winter Werk Out here).Joining them will be Buffalo jammers Aqueous, soul-funk artist Zach Deptuty, producer Phutureprimitive, and up-and-coming acts Litz, Electric Orange Peel, Ernie Johnson From Detroit, and Conscious Pilot. As if that wasn’t enough, members of both The Werks and Papadosio will join forces for an Official Pre-Party at Woodlands Tavern on Thursday, February 1st.With the 2017 release of their latest EP, Magic, The Werks have transcended the jam genre with creative and well-curated songcraft that could easily see the group gaining fam outside the jam realm. Glide Magazine described Magic as being, “Filled with both electricity and hypnotic bliss… while retaining a perfect dose of soul,” and with good reason—while the element of organic improvisation is still present, the album offers 60’s psychedelia and indie-rock stylings that any true music head would enjoy. Now with four albums, thousands of shows, and their own highly-acclaimed summer music festival under their belt, The Werks is a group that should be on everybody’s radar.The Werks, “Slab”, The Werk Out 2017[via The Werks Official]If 2017 has been any indication, then 2018 will be another monumental year for Papadosio. Each year, the band grows musically and continues to expand on what they have already created and put forth into the universe. The natural ebb and flow of Dosio’s music falls in between the rock, jazz, and electronic genres, though always presents itself as nothing short of harmonious. With the release of Pattern Integrities in 2016, the band took another leap, exploring the greater stratosphere of sound and proving they are just getting started from a creative perspective.Papadosio, “The Bionic Man Man Meets His Past”, Red Rocks 2017[via Papadosio]Phutureprimitive creates music that is harmonious with nature and the human spirit. Lush, tranquil, and hypnotic melodies splash over an exotic background of sound, combining for a deeply organic, futuristic, and, yes, primitive experience to the listener. But Phutureprimitive can just as easily turn things into dance-heavy bangers that keep the crowd in ever-kinetic motion. With the release of Searching for Beauty in the Darkest Places (released in two parts during 2014 and 2015), the producer displayed a multi-dimensional approach to sonic construction.Phutureprimative, “Energy Flow”[via Phutureprimitive]Buffalo, New York-based jammers Aqueous are most definitely on their way up. With high-profile performances at festivals this past summer—including playing with fellow upstate New Yorkers, members of  moe., at this year’s Brooklyn Comes Alive—guitarist Mike Gantzer and company are turning heads at every stop they make across the country. Their Winter Werk Out set will definitely be one to not, “Plane Crash”, Brooklyn Comes Alive 2017[via Live For Live Music]Tickets for The Winter Werk Out are currently on-sale and can be purchased here.
