The Father Ryan Irish Pride 5K was November 13, 2011. As you can see, I'm a little late with this recap. This was a [post] Veteran's Day race that benefitted the Father Ryan scholarship fund. This was a small, local race that I learned about during my stint as my kids' cross country coach. I also learned that several kids and parents from other parochial schools would also be participating. When I found this out, I knew that I would be running this race. After all, I have to represent, right? Word. The weather was chilly, but sunny. Nearly ideal racing conditions. It was a quick little out and back. Although it wasn't a certified course, I whipped out a fast 5K, finishing in 20:37. This was a 6:39/mi pace that won me a 3rd place finish in my age group. It was also a PR! A nice finish to a fun little race.
