    That would be 5 kilometres, but I reckon metric people are a minority here ;)
     
  2. You made it multiple-choice, so you could conceivably walk the same stretch at different rates.

    Since when do Eastern European people say things like "I reckon" or "doggonit"? I don't even say things like that and I come from the country they originated!

    Oh, and about an hour.

    It depends how tall you are.

    If you're 160cm, it might take 45-50 minutes, I reckon. ;)

    Yes :p

    But really, I'm going to try to be fast. I won't lie about the result. If you guess the time, you get an award.

    There are Eastern Europeans here? Where? :D
    Wise thinking, Kewpie! 8 cm taller than that, so you may be right!

    The award will be free stay and participation in this race next year this time :D

    How much exercise do you get? How quickly to do get out of breath? Is it across flat terrain?

    I walk for 30 minutes every other day, and I get out of breath if I climb uphill. But the terrain will be flat, and almost half of it is downhill.

    *okay, that sounded funny, but you get my gist :p

    I would say that walking briskly that you would have it done in forty five minutes, what's the purpose of the event?

    It's a marathon, but everyone can run the 5k. Or walk, which is more to my liking :p I want to know my limits!

    we know what a 5k race is! thats how we measure them here...

    If you walk pretty decently fast you can get it done in at least 50 minutes. If you jog parts of it you can get it done in less than 40. I typically jog half of it and walk fast the rest and complete my 5ks in 36-37 minutes.
     
  16. I thought that the typical human walking rate is 3-4 MPH, which would mean 45-60 minutes for walking a 5k race.

    Is your sig worth it, or should I not bother? Be honest, I might kill you if it's a prank :D

    oh yes you can jog, i was running when I was 88 kilos, just not for long stretches and not fast at all :)
    it isnt worth it!

    im going to go check my kilo math now.
    edit: I have mad kilos-in-my-head skills, its right :D
     
  20. It's totally worth it. Would I lie?

    Oh, and FYI, I change the message in it every couple of hours.
