The Rest of the Story

Well…there’s something I need to confess to you.

I didn’t celebrate National Running Day. I didn’t even really acknowledge it.

I also haven’t really been running quite so much lately…or at least my overall mileage has decreased (by a lot).

And even though everything I told you in my post about not running Vermont City was true, I did leave out one little, but important detail.

The detail that explains why I started experiencing back pain on my runs. Why I lost motivation to train. And why (even though I was technically cleared) I decided it was best to sit out of VCM a couple of weekends ago.

Because at the moment — I’m focusing on a different type of training plan. One that’s longer than anything I’ve ever done. And instead of making me fitter and faster, it’ll ultimately make me gain weight and slow down.

A type of training that’s already proven harder than any marathon training plan I’ve ever taken on.

But it does come with a super sweet reward at the end…

Cheese Baby – coming December 2013*!


We’re kinda really excited…

*Yeah, I know it’s kind of early to announce this sort of thing, but I got tired of trying to hide it (aka just not blog ever). Also, it’s really tough to keep something this exciting a secret for so long!

More to come!

  5. YAY! Congrats-I kinda wondered if that was the reason you did not run your marathon! Your marathon endurance will come in handy over the next 9 months. I love the race bib idea-SO cute! Best of luck during your pregnancy!

  9. Congratulations! That’s so exciting. Babies are the bomb (just don’t let my mom hear me say that — I’m still in college and not expected to have a baby for quite a long time.)

  10. awwww congrats!!! I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on running while pregnant. I didn’t run much at all – the first trimester for me was sheer exhaustion, all day, every day. The 2nd I was plagued with SI Joint issues that made walking painful and the 3rd trimester I just…couldn’t/didn’t want to. Keep moving though, it’ll help more than you know :)

    Babies rock :) :) Enjoy the journey (it goes by so much quicker than you could ever imagine, in a good way!)
