...and did not finish last! :)
I haven't checked official times, but it was 43 something. That's about the same time as the last 5k I did. The good news is that I ran a lot more than I walked this time around. The bad news is that I now weigh about 40 pounds more than I did last time I did a 5k in Spring of 2012. So I guess my fitness level is decent because I was able to haul this extra weight across the finish line in about the same amount of time, but I'd much rather be rid of it and see how fast I can really go!
Baby steps, right? I'm going to start working on the elliptical like it's my job. Also, I'm committed to tracking all of my calories no matter what. No more partial days and then stopping because I overeat. Our next cruise is 20 weeks away, so I need to really work hard between now and then so I don't spend my whole vacation feeling self conscious!
