News from the Streets of San Francisco

Conor afterwards in AT&T Park

No, not Michael Douglas and Karl Malden (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Streets_of_San_Francisco) but Conor Dolan and his adventures in the _Plate to Plate 5KM_ ran earlier this week. 

Sixth in a time of 17:24. 

He was every so slightly disappointed with the time but as he says in his short report below, it was his 9th hard race in 10 weeks.  Conor was coming off an excellent set of runs in the Galway 5KM series, (almost?) all of them sub-17!
