I DID IT!!!!!!
I finished the 5k in an excellent time for me. 55 minutes.
I beat this challenge. Man I must be competetive. I just love a challenge and even better I like beating that challenge. I am 59 years young but I feel better now that I did at 39. I am amazed at how much better I feel because of walking, eathing healthier. and beating these challenges.
What a rush!

Congratulations to those who have finished this challenge.
emoticon champs.

Keep on walking to you all who will finish today or tomorrow.


You can throw in the towel or use it to wipe the sweat off your face.

I completed my 5K yesterday. My time was 49 minutes. The training program helped. I walked!

I just finished my 5K. Walked, didn't run (knee replacement, running no longer allowed says the doctor), did it in 72 minutes. Now I need to find where I go to record this.

Walking a 5K is much more fun when walking with someone else. I just finished my 4th 5K. My time improved with each walk and the best thing is having someone at the finish line cheering you on.

This was my second time through and it went SO much better... I only missed one workout and I finished a little before I planned! I fell GREAT about finishing!!!

way to go!!! Doing any kind of exercise seems to be much more fun (and much less like work) when you can do it with friends :)

Show up - Do the work - Finish strong!

joined up with a couple of teachers today. They were having a 5k I happen to hear about. So I asked if I could join. Was much more fun having everyone there together. my time was an hour and 5 minutes.

Enjoy The Moment
