Default 5K run complete!

So on a very cold Saturday morning, me and about 1200 close friends did a 5K race to raise money for the Special Olympics.

My time was 35.43. I managed to run (slowly) the entire race and was really happy to finish without walking. I now have another 5K race that I'm going to be doing this Sunday.

Height: 6'2
Starting weight/ Current low weight/"redline" weight
Total: 267.6 pounds.

I will do the Komen 60 mile walk for breast cancer again this year!!
Next goal is 175: Pounds from goal = 4.2.
