I walked my 1st 5K in June and my second one in July. I came in Last but the second one I shaved off 4 min 35 seconds. I walked it in about the same time as you. I was the oldest Walker at almost 62 at that time.

Thanks so much for sharing this. Very encouraging...and way to go!!
his past Sunday, October 9, 2011, I competed in my third 5K, the Tyler FitCity 5K, in Tyler TX. It was a great time as I walked/ran with my wife Kathy, oldest daughter Melody, and close friend Becky. This was Becky's first 5K which made it extra special. I was worried about my performance because of work projects in September and slightly injuring my lower back, I had only be able to work and train 3 times in the month leading up to the race. And at 317 pounds, that kind of strain on my body is tough enough when I do prepare properly. The weather was nice and cool and off we ran. For me, it was both an easy course and difficult course, easy because it went through neighborhoods and difficult for the number of hills, all seemed to be uphill, never downhill of course. I walked most of the race but was able to jog on the downhills and when I saw the water station. I hit the 2 mile mark at 35 minutes, so I knew I had to pick it up but I also wanted to make sure my daughter was okay. Kathy was just flying away from us and I was so proud and this is a major accomplishment for her. I think she found her niche. The last K was almost totally uphill and I was spent, then word started passing through the ranks that the course of laid out wrong and we were running longer than the 5K, ended up being a 5.72K. Gassed, I was determined to finish strong, so Melody and I kicked it in the last 100 or so yards to cross the line. My time was 55:11 which was what I ran last year in the 5K. Converted time was 48:06, same as Mel's, a best for her also, and Kathy was 47:42. Becky ran in the 34 minute range and I could not be more proud of her. Way to go Becky!!!!!
I write this to encourage everyone that regardless of your health situation, there is something that you can do. BTW, I forgot to mention the lady who participated in the 5K in a wheelchair, with no help, up and down the hills. She finished around 1 hr 30 minutes. The applause and cheering for her brought tears to many of our eyes. So if she can do this, challenge yourself. You don't have to run a major race but find some kind of physical competition to work towards. At 408 pounds in January 2010, bad knees, lower back problems, high BP, etc. you would have never convinced me that I can participate in such events. Also I did finish last in my age division again, so next year the better watch out, I don't like last.
