The week I found out was the week I was suposed to run 20 miles. I had just come off a half the week before (baby was working hard to settle into his/her new home as I ran across bridges and jostles him/her around!). It was freezing and raining and I decided to run indoors. I was soooo tired (one of the major things that made me test when I did!) Met Erika at the gym and realzied I forgot food and water. Then my mind played games with me. Needless to say I only got through 10. It was tough. I kept up with my training though, and I ran a full marathon during week 8. It was an amazing experience! The beginning and middle involved a lot of running and the end involved a lot of walking. I hit my mental "wall" at about mile 21. I hated it, wanted to stop, and even cried. But I sucked it up and continued on. See mile 26 was incredible. And crossing that finishline nice and strong was a feeling of amazement. I'm really looking forward to doing a second one not pregnant. Really push my body and see what it can accomplish. I'm so proud of myself!!
Now, for the baby! So far, everything has been amazing. I have been lucky enough to not have any morning sickness and have really felt quite good! I'm still running!! And I plan to for as long as I can. I really believe it's helped me feel as good as I have so far. Baby Boerger is due October 8, 2012. We can't wait!!
Heres some pics to sum it all up!
