Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon 5k
Official time: 41:36.0
What went right:
- I got there in time for the start. I had worried that I left too early, but because the 509 streetcar wasn't coming, I had time to walk from Queen's Quay to Ontario Place, and I counted that as my warmup.
What went wrong:
- I walked much of it. Not enough training leading up to it. I'm actually OK with that. This keeps the streak of running a race over the course of a year alive.
- About a kilometre in, I turned off auto-pause in Strava. That accounts for the 3-minute discrepancy from the official time.

From the Strava activity, I can see the GPS couldn't handle the places it normally doesn't handle on this route: underneath the Gardiner overpass and pretty much all of Bay St.
