56.29

Okay, so as many of you know, I ran (walked) my third 5k this weekend. Each time I pull a little more time off the clock even though I still cannot run the full distance. I finished this one (the Marine Corps Aviation charity 5k) in 56 minutes and 29 seconds according to the official timing. This is my best time yet. I tried to jog at first (which is hard not to do when you have 2000 chanting Marines behind you and the race begins with a cannon), but had to walk about a quarter of a mile in because of TERRIBLE shin splints. If anyone knows how to prevent these, please let me know as they are killing my ability to jog a race. I was pleased overall and my time is slowly improving, but the best part is I am down 25 pounds since the beginning of the year. I still have a long way to go, but I'll make it! I did finally get some good running shoes after the race which should help with the shin splints some (thanks Runner's World of Pensacola!). Until next time...

Hey Matt,

WAY to go! I've actually become a rather avid jogger since I began losing weight too.

Sounds crazy, but if you run backwards, you'll avoid those shin splints. I wouldn't recommend it in a race though. :-) Looks kinda silly.

Keep on Keeping On!

Dan
