What limited your ability to perform faster:

To quote the radio ad for a fitness facility "rubbery, flubbery, blubbery out of shape dude (in my case dudette)...look at me I'm a pear"

Event comments:

I never met Christine, but after reading her log and reading all the comments from her friends, I wish I had. She sounds like she was an amazing person. Rest in peace Christine. Maybe one day we can meet at the finish line when we both break 30 min for a 5k.

The photo below is a few km upstream from Niagara Falls taken right after i finished my run. You can actually see the mist of the Falls (ok, so you have to look really hard, but trust me it's there).
