It was a beautiful day for a fast early morning walk in Pasadena CA on Sunday when I walked my first 5k!!   Sara and I arrived from our hotel room at 5:40am just before the bikes went off.  Then Sara took off on her half marathon run at 6:30am. I then waited for the 10k and 5k to start an hour later..... Sooo many people!
