Running It Off

While I was pregnant I had the genius idea to sign up for a half marathon after the baby was born for motivation to lose the baby weight. I did not think this was such a hot idea once I had to start training. However, I made it and finished the race last weekend. Ryan and Paul came downtown to cheer me on.

Please excuse my appearance in this picture. I don't sweat pretty.

Although I am not the fastest runner, I was proud of myself for finishing 13 miles 6 months after Paul was born. When I was on mile 9 I told myself, "You are never doing this again." When I finished I thought, "Maybe I could do this one more time." Time will tell.


  1. One more time, One more time. I actually was just looking up possible races for us :)

    But either way...Congratulations!! you have accomplished so much in very little time and should be proud of yourself!

  2. Congrats! That is so awesome, I can't even tell you.

  4. awesome! very impressive. scarlett will be 4 months this week and i have yet to break a sweat. but this is inspiring and motivating :)
