Hmm...So I CAN do it

Just walked 5.2 km in 70 minutes. For those of you who are not metric, that's about 2.67 miles an hour. Not too shabby, if I do say so myself. I think I'd like to finish the race in under an hour. That seems do-able without being too high.

Baby blanket number one is 2/3 finished, coming up quickly on 3/4. I like big needles and yarn.

Hello Orris! I am also a wanna be runner... (I'm in ok shape because I kickbox, but I have bad knees, go figure!)... I'm not sure if your back is feeling better, but I've been run/walking... about 2 minutes of running to 1 minute of walking. It takes the stress off of my knees and lower back because I get "rest" periods, but it keeps my heart rate up for the proper aerobic exercise. But since you're actually trying to finish a run, perhaps that isn't the best idea :)
Anyway- thanks for the great comment on my Yarn Harlot visit- sometimes I think nobody understands my wacky sense of humor. (it's my own special blend) It's wonderful to know that at least you are having a laugh sometimes... either with me or at me ;)
Good luck on the baby blankets- I did a double strand fan and feather pattern for my cousin's baby that I found out about days after he was born (Doh!) It turned out really nicely, but very warm- I'm not sure if that's an issue where you are :)

You're doing great! I'm just under 3 miles an hour, but it's taken a *lot* of walking to get there. Keep it up! (Oh! And I like Kristine's idea of alternating between walking and running!).
