HELL yeah.

Jingle Bells 5k run: raised over €250, ran the race in under 19:30. Personal time ~19:21, race clock 19:26, no idea what my official time will be.

I totally ran the crap out of the last few hundred metres: this is the first time I've come to the end of a race with my lungs hurting. Worth it to take a whole minute off last year's time, though.

edited to add approximate splits: 1k @ 3:40, 2k @ 7:30, 3k @ 11:30, 4k @ 15:30, 5k @ 19:21. I'm a little hazy on the splits, to be honest - I think the 7:30 might have been a 7:34, but then again maybe it was the 15:30 that was a 15:34.

Congrats, that's a bloody impressive time.

A minute a year? When you are 54 you'll be doing 5K in 20 seconds, despite the claims of those race clocks. Way to go bro.
