So hi! to any new readers. My name is Heather, I'm 27 years old, married almost one year, two weeks away from my first baby's due date, a celiac, a runner, triathlete, flight attendant turned temporary office worker and a healthy blog reader! Welcome!
BUT, I actually have a race report to share today!
Last weekend, we (Matt, Kaitlin, Jordan and I) went out to Canmore for our third annual trip to the Canmore Rocky Mountain race. My mum and I set out to walk our little hearts out for 5 km! I will admit I haven't walked very far or very quickly in a while, so I wasn't 100% sure how I would feel (and I haven't run in what seems like forever since I got work from my midwife that I am not allowed to run). My belly was tight and a little uncomfy by the end, but it was great to participate in the event and be in the mountains.
So this baby has officially run a 10 km, a half marathon, and walked a 5 km all before birth! I wonder if it will be a runner or hate running. We will have to wait and see! (Side note, both my sister and I HATED running until we participated in our first race together in 2007, so even if it hates running as a child, it might develop a liking to it someday!) (Is that right? 2007?)
|10 km! Can't REALLY tell I'm pregnant.|
|I think this (the police half marathon) was the last time I could squeeze into my CW-X tights!|
|Here I am laughing that they announced our names as we were about to cross the finish line of the 5km|
So there you have it! My final pregnant race report, and now I can focus on having this baby, recovering, and getting back into running!
