Overcome the notion that you must be regular. It robs you of your chance to be extraordinary.

In the first one you can see me reaching for Tikey as I point to the clock. The last one you can see Tikey smiling, I wish I had been in that pic as I'm sure the look on my face would have been priceless! I love that you can see that we are holding hands. Too bad about the cropping on it.

Here's the video without the cropping :)

Nice video. :) I don't know how he links just to those time frames...

I also just noticed that your 10K split had exactly the same pace as your overall pace. I don't know how you do that without a watch! :) Impressive.

Or just add "#t=Xs" to the normal link where X is however many seconds. You can also do "#t=XmYs" for minutes and seconds if you like.
