This past weekend I participated in the Biggest Loser Run Walk 5K. I walked the 5K and had a great time despite the cold. It was a chilly blustery day (as you can see from our pictures). This was my second 5K and I felt a lot better when I finished this one than the last one. When I finished the Color Run I could barely muster a smile as I crossed the finish line. At the end of this race I was tired, but still felt good.

I had a goal of doing the walk in under an hour. This is what my tracking said:

The official time is different and puts me at a minute over an hour, but I still feel good about that time. The results show that I finished 6th for female walkers in my age group (my friend finished 2nd!). I finished 126 (out of 200) overall of 5K walkers. I'm pretty proud of myself.

I'm going to use the winter to really try to up my endurance and next year I'm going to be under an hour on my 5k times!

  2. I've been wanting to do a Biggest Loser Run/Walk, but can't find any near where I live. Looks like you had a great time doing it!

  3. It was really great. Everyone was really nice and towards the finish line they were really encouraging in picking up the pace and finishing strong. It was the perfect boost I needed.

  4. I'm working on a plan but I'm hoping to get time both on the treadmill and walking outside in during the weeks.
