We ran this very flat downtown T.O. race last year and it was the worst run ever. Way too many bad things converged and I took over 2 hours to finish. I had never run that slow, even in training runs, so I was miserable.
This year, it was not as hot or sunny (though it was a bit muggy) and I wasn't an emotional cesspool. I was looking out for several celebrities like Jessica from Mommy Running Through, and commenter Dawn, who was running the 5k. I didn't see them, unfortunately, but did snag a pick with cute-as-a-button Cynthia from Cynthia's Adventures.

Phil also had a PR of 1:20:47 (19th in his age group of a gazillion) -- crazy fast if you ask me.
