"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood...who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly." Theodore Roosevelt 1910

Mike's First 10K!

My friend, Mike O'Leary, did his first 10K today in Winter Park.  If you recall previous posts, Mike caught the running bug when he arose early on a Saturday morning in 2008 to drive me to a 10K in Dublin, Ireland.  He's trained hard, going from 5Ks to a 5 Miler last fall to today's 10K.  A heavy downpour ended just as the race began on Park Avenue in downtown Winter Park, soaking everyone.  I wanted to surprise him but we failed to connect before the start due to the huge crowd of 2,500 runners.  I found him at Mile 5 and we ran to the finish together.  Mike finished with a great time of 1:06:09 with 10:38 mile splits.  Well done Mike!





Also racing were 2 co-workers from Ernst & Young, Kevin Casey and Paula Yeomans along with Sarah Buchanan, an ex-EY co-worker.
