Embracing The Changes In Life

Someone recently asked me about my running and how I currently feel about it. True, I'm not running 5 days per week as I have in the past. I'm not even running my usual 3. I think my new norm for awhile (maybe forever) might be 2 days a week.

How do I feel about it? I feel liberated. I feel like stepping outside of the model of runner to something bigger. Because I've said it before, and I will say it again, I am more than just a runner.

7 Months Pregnant

Seven months pregnant - it's hard to believe. I am so excited that our little one should be here in about 3 months. I'm also excited about the idea of being able to exercise again! For the last 7 months, I haven't even really been able to walk for exercise. So I went from running or working out most days a week to no exercise at all. It has been a major adjustment. Don't get me started on the weight that I've gained.

I know that after the baby gets here everything will be different. Major life changes ahead! I plan to start walking with him as soon as the Dr will release me to exercise. HG has promised to give me an hour a day to be able to go run. I also have a jogging stroller that I'll be using once he gets a little older. So we'll adjust.

Hopefully I can make some of the summer/fall races of 2011. It's all very exciting.
