Craving a Run

At 37 weeks pregnant, I haven't run in a while.. and by a while, I mean around 10 weeks.

My last real (ish) run was the Marathon Weekend 5k in January.  (Read the recap here) and even by then, I had to do more walking than jogging b/c.. well, I was 6 months pregnant and it's just not that easy!

But, as the weather is getting better - we're having some beautifully sunny days in the 50's and 60's on the days that Mother Nature remembers it's not mid-summer - there are constantly runners on the roads and trails near my house.  And, I really wish I could be one of them.  At this point in my pregnancy and with my... side effects? walking is now nearly impossible..  I practice vinyasa flow yoga regularly, but running and walking aren't really doable.

Marathon Weekend 2011
Well, with 3 weeks left of pregnancy and then around 6 weeks before being "medically cleared" for exercise, I'm seriously craving a run.  I'm excited that registration for WDW Marathon Weekend 2013 opens soon - I'm registered (from 2012 - had to delay!), but my husband has to register and we'll probably register both boys for the Kid's Races again - Noah has had fun the past two years running in his 100 meter dash and baby #2 will simply do the 50 meter diaper crawl!

If you're curious how and why I started running, you can read about that here.

Now for Marathon Weekend 2013, we're going to run to raise money and awareness for Autism Speaks.  Can we convince you to join us?  Check out our facebook page.  We're small, but over the next several months, we hope to grow and convince more of our (Magical Blogorail) readers to join in on the fun!

Hope to see you there.
