Richmond, VA - November 11, 2017 | Time: 59:31
Pregnant running is no joke!! I took this on at 20 weeks pregnant with twins?! I wasn't sure how it was going to go- but then on the day it went great!!
The weather was ridiculously cold so dressing was harder than expected but I had on my running for three tank over various layers. :) My plan was to run to the mile marker and then walk a couple of minutes (repeat) until I made it to the end. Jon's mom stayed with me the entire time to make sure I made it ok. We ended up finishing in under an hour which had been my tentative goal... I just wasn't sure if I was going to be able to achieve it. But yes.. 59:31!! BOOM. I felt like such a badass afterwards. :)
Jon ran the half and totally rocked it out of the park and his dad ran the marathon and qualified for Boston in 2019!
It was a great weekend with family and I'm so proud of how far I've come with pregnant running. Anything past this point is just icing on the cake!
