Decent 5k race on a gorgeous summer-like day

Just got back from the Race That's Good for Life 5k race in Oak Park. Improving on both the previous two races as well as other 5k races, I finally broke 21 minutes for a PR of 20:27. Conditions were ideal if not almost too warm and sunny at an unusually (heck, it's Chicagoland in April!!) high low 70s and sunshine.

Running with the Garmin Forerunner is a nice little cheat with its specific modes: you set the desired time and distance, and it keeps you abreast of how you're doing relative to the target pace. However, it lost tracking after just over two miles but by then I knew I was on track and just needed to carry on at that pace.
