20 Weeks...or half way through pregnancy! That's what the Dr. said on Thursday, along with the A-OK to Run the half. He said and I quote "you know that pregnancy wise, you are entirely fine running the half...the only risk is falling, so be careful."
With a go ahead and feeling fine I decided I would give it a go, with the opt-out option at any time.
LOVE running so much! I love that every piece of my being is engaged (baby too). The physical, emotional, spiritual...it's all there, actively engaged in one purpose. I just feel ALIVE!!!
Ricky took fourth place overall and first in his age group. My time was 2:17, not a PR but we'll just call it a Prego PR.
I have been telling myself for the past few weeks that I was only going to run through the half marathon and then, I would find another exercise source for those mornings...One thing is for sure...I'll see how I feel Tuesday morning and if my brain can handle the running withdrawal. But then, who knows if I were to actually stop running I may actually re-hab my hip for better post-pregnancy running. Ah, to run lighter with less weight hanging on my pelvis...that is somethign to look forward to!
