Race Recap: Angel Run ’15

I’ve run this race in the past quite a few times and there isn’t too much new to say in terms of the course or the experience. It remains a nice, well-organized hometown 5k where all the race proceeds help local initiatives. It’s also a nice way to cap off the year and see friends and acquaintances before everyone begins to get busy for the holidays or hibernate through the winter.

The big difference this year was that it was Cecilia’s first 5k! And she did great. Better than great, really. She ran the whole way, pushed through the tough times in mile 3 and finished strong. Her time would have been even better if she didn’t slow to run and chat with her friends at the start. But what fun is running if you can’t hang out and chat with friends? She’ll have plenty of more years to really race.

It also fulfilled the first part of my Dad’s retirement goal of running a 5k with both his grandkids. One down and one to go. Based on the times, it also won’t be many more years until Dad is chasing the girls in that final mile.

Nice job, Donohue Running Club!
