I'll give you a little background on this first entry. I am 56 years old and had gastric bypass surgery in 2004 losing approximately 165 pounds. I was on a walking program after the surgery and kept the weight off until about six months ago. I had quit walking about 2 years ago and had gradually yo yo'd up and down until about six months ago when I started putting it back on and it's not going anywhere but up. I had went from 330 to 165 and am now back up to 215. Now I figured I could start walking again and get the weight off but I ran when I was younger and enjoyed it so now being retired I thought I would try it again and maybe do some competitive running to give me something to do in retirement.
July 20, 2011 - My wife and I walked nearly a mile as a warm up. I then ran 1.03 miles in 15:54 for a pace of 15.27 min/mile. When I say ran I am starting off running 90 seconds and walking 60 seconds.
Distance: 1.03 Miles or 1.658K
