PAWTUCKET â€” When Diana Davis ran up the steep incline during the first mile of the inaugural Irish 5K in Pawtucket, she didnâ€™t just see the top males in the field.
Davis, a third-year PhD student at Brown University, also saw some green.
â€śI want to go to Ireland,â€ť she said.
The 25-year-old runner took the first step to making that trip to the Emerald Isle a reality Saturday morning when she was the first woman to cross the line in front of City Hall, placing ninth overall among the 849 finishers with a time of 18 minutes, 25.1 seconds.
