I did a 5K yesterday too and my time was 65 minutes so you did awesome. I did the best I could and you did too so for that alone - we should be proud. It beats not doing it - right! I will be doing the virtual 5K at the end of the month so hope to know some time off of my minutes.

Congrats to you and keep up walking.

Hugs, Sunny

I did it. And it ended up being so much more than just a little exercise (I blogged about it, please check it out!) but I am SO proud. 6 months ago, heck, THREE months ago, if you'd told me I'd not only do a 5k race, but finish strong, unexhausted, and happy, I would have laughed. I felt so amazing when I finished, I wasn't even winded, even though it was a rather vigorous walk. I only did 57:15, but that was mostly because I kept getting stuck behind other people... and I didn't mind, because I was surrounded by 4,000 other racers! As far as I could see, ahead and behind me, there were THOUSANDS of pink shirts, survivors, supporters, children, and adults.

It was really a spiritual experience, and I couldn't have done it without Sparkpeople.

Writer, mother, wife, and breadwinner. I love to run, but running doesn't love me, so I'm switching to my low-impact bike.
