Ten years ago, Gerry Walsh (47) rediscovered his passion for running. After a short 20 year running hiatus he joined SWEAT and hasn’t looked back. He recently returned to his native Ireland for a holiday and a series of three road races.
His results were.
Cloyne 4K- Time 14:29
Church town South 5 miles(8.045k) Time 30:00 Placed 23rd. out of 531.
Cloyne 5k Time 18:14 1st. place o/45
He had last run the Churchtown 5miles in 1986 as a seventeen year old. With the help of SWEAT he ‘lost’ only 22 seconds in 30years.His aim is to return next year to beat his 17 year old self’s pb, showing age is no barrier.
