Boston- Here we go again!

Boston- Here we go again!

Yesterday I registered for the Boston Marathon… for the second time.  This time was very different from before for obvious reasons. I feel like the odds of me actually making it to the starting line this time have gone up considerably, being that I’m not pregnant this time around.  Yes, registering for Boston two years ago was a crazy experience!  Yesterday the whole process was simple and uneventful.  It was perfect. Quick Boston back story: When I first decided I…

A Few Thoughts on Weaning, Running, Racing and Resting

A Few Thoughts on Weaning, Running, Racing and Resting

Warning: The first paragraph contains some emotional and hormonal ranting on babies and nursing.  Feel free to skip to the next paragraph! I haven’t posted in a few days because I’ve been back in my why-can’t-my-running-be-back-to-normal funk.  I am also about 2 weeks behind in my daily Bible reading (which is the most I’ve ever been since I started doing this) so I guess I feel a little guilty about spending any time blogging.  Up until recently, I usually read…

Made it to 35 weeks!

Made it to 35 weeks!

Yes, I am truly counting down the weeks now. Just 2 more weeks until I’m considered “full-term.” I have been running quite a bit on treadmills the past week. The temps have been in the 30’s and I am not waking up and running early in the cold by myself anymore. We still don’t have our own treadmill (hopefully within the next month or so that will change) so I’ve been using mom and dad’s or Harding’s. My pace is…

Boston Registration MADNESS!!

Boston Registration MADNESS!!

27 weeks pregnant! Yesterday registration for the 115th Boston Marathon opened. 8 hours later Registration was closed- in record time! CRAZY!! I went on to register in the morning as planned. For the past 8 months I have planned on registering and the “deferring” my entry to April, 2012. According to the website, you could defer one time. This year they changed the deferment policy and as of this Boston Marathon you can no longer defer. So, if I don’t…

Getting S l o w e r . . . .

Getting S l o w e r . . . .

This pic was taken 2 weeks ago. 13 more weeks to go! I am turning into a turtle. I am not complaining because at least I am still running. I am 26 weeks and still able to run 3-5 miles but I can definitely tell a big difference in my pace. 10 minute miles is the new average. I am fine with that. Right now I am not in training and I am enjoying this time of casual running. My…

Runner Mom is PREGNANT!!

Runner Mom is PREGNANT!!

Yes, I am officially 15 weeks pregnant today. Number 4 is on the way! We waited to tell the general public until week 13 so I really didn’t want anything out there on my running blog. I am due January 10th, 2011. We are very excited about it. This is our last one so I am trying to treasure each milestone. (Although I don’t think I will ever “miss” the nausea/ food issue of the first trimester!) I must admit…
