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.

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.
