A few weeks ago I decided that I should run the same 5k that I ran last year the only thing is I had not been really running that much since I had been doing Bikram Yoga.  Nonetheless, a few Saturdays ago Vin and I got up at 6 am on a Saturday morning and heading downtown.  This year they expanded the race to include a 10k which a think double the participation, so it was a little crowed. Vin snapped some photos as I stretched and I told him that he should see me around the 45min mark.  That is what I have been running 3 miles at on my own a month ago so I thought that was a safe bet.  

me running about .4 miles in.   I get very camera shy and I thought I was telling myself to look at the camera but obviously that is not the case.  The course is easy, its Florida, straight shot on A1A.  To my left is the ocean and to the right is beautiful houses so it is pretty easy to keep yourself moving.  The only negative is it is a run out, 1.5 miles and run back.  I like seeing all the fast people run  back but it gets a little boring on the way back.  I had my Garmin 305 on and I was not keep to close track of my mile marks just trying to keep moving and once I turned back and hit 2.5 I realized that I would beat my time from last year.

And it turned out by more then a minute.  Last years time was 36:51 and this years time 35:36.
