I have a confession. I’ve had a new running partner for the past month.
That’s right, I’m pregnant!
We found out very early and I am currently 4 weeks along. It looks like my due date is September 27th, but I’ll know for sure at my upcoming appointment with the doctor. I still plan to run. I’ve been running while pregnant for the past month, and honestly they were the most enjoyable runs I’ve ever experienced. My time wasn’t the best (and I now know why), but they felt so good mentally and physically. I am currently registered for a 5K that is next Saturday and the Princess Half Marathon.
I plan to write a post once a week with little updates on our “little runner”. But, I also plan to stick to my regular postings. Now more than ever I have the desire to be in great shape. I pray for a healthy baby and pregnancy and I know that easy exercise will help.
I am so excited about this new adventure. I am thrilled to have a little one to run along with me for the next 8 months and I ask for your thoughts and prayers as we begin this new chapter together!
Did you run while you were pregnant? What are your thoughts on exercise while pregnant?
