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!
