>Look What I Can Do!>Ran my first official 5k!!
Heya.... 41 year old man.. 250lbs.. been training / working out hard since Sept .. lost 30lbs since then... just started actively 'training' (running) about 10 weeks ago...
Did my first 'official' race/run today!
Susan G Komen Race for the Cure , South Florida (West Palm Beach) 5k.
I ran 0:26:13.18 .. whoo hoo... overall 616 out of 3000 runners... 45th in my age group...
So proud of myself!
Those who try, fail! Those who do what it takes to succeed, succeed!!
If you went out too fast and got tired later on -- which is what almost all of us do at first, and lots of the kids do every time -- then you can try adjusting your tactics the next time
It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.
So proud of myself!
You should be. WTG
Run until the trail runs out.

The pain that hurts the worse is the imagined pain. One of the most difficult arts of racing is learning to ignore the imagined pain and just live with the present pain (which is always bearable.) - Jeff
Nice going Kevin! Race for the Cure 2009 was my first 5K and I've been hooked ever since.
Keep us posted on your progress.
Do you know the feeling I know? When your legs have disappeared, and there is only your heart, your lungs, and your eyes skimming disembodied through the air? - Jeff
Goals for 2013: sub 18 5K; stay healthy

Nice going Kevin! I'm envious - it took me several years to get below 26 minutes in a 5K.
