Did a 5 k walk last night

The 5 k (which is going around the indoor track 21 and 1/4 times on the inside lane) took me an hour and 2 minutes.

It was just myself and 1G1D1Y.

She snapped this pic of me while we were there on her camera phone...












**unrelated to this post but, when I got home I discovered that Baby Girl popped her 8th tooth! (#7 appeared the last wk of Dec).

I googled how long it should take to walk 5 k and here's what I found on about.com
