20th Annual IOA Corporate 5K

This past Thursday (April 17th, 2014) evening I ran my third IOA Corporate 5K around Lake Eola in downtown Orlando. Again I was a member of Team IBM and we had about 35 people there. I did ok with my self timed time at 40:04 minutes. I tried to do intervals of three minutes running with two minutes of recovery. I pushed myself too hard at the beginning and then I just didn’t have the will to stick with it during the middle. I should have pushed myself more in the middle as I had plenty of energy to basically sprint for the last 50-100 yards. This is what I looked like afterward. Yes, I’m an awkward selfie taker. Yes, that is the Lake Eola fountain behind me and not an extraterrestrial landing craft.
