Feeling pretty huge these days: 31 32 How I'm Feeling (aside from huge): The third trimester aches/pains have definitely set in. I still would say I'm having a fairly easy go of it as I'm still functioning in a mostly similar way to pre pregnancy. I am still working M-F, still wearing heels (I have … Continue reading Fitness and Baby, weeks 31 and 32
I know in my last update, I shared that I had started to "feel" more pregnant at that time. Well, this has definitely intensified!

Week 29 Week 30 How I'm … Continue reading Fitness and Baby, Weeks 29 and 30
After waffling back and forth for awhile, about two weeks ago, I decided that I'd go for the 8k / half marathon rather than dropping to the 5k/10k.

A few weeks ago marked my 8th year as a runner and this past Tuesday was the 7 year anniversary of my first ever half marathon. I've talked a little about my entry into running in some of my early blog posts. It was super simple: I laced up an old pair of cross trainers … Continue reading 8 years
A marathon! Surprise! It's actually a surprise even to me if I'm being completely honest. I have run 3 total organized events in 2018 which is fairly rare for me looking at my history of racing about once or twice a month (or more) in most years.
