"Running" a 5K at 31 weeks!

Last week I ran my last 5K to earn my Syrathon Medal!! Yay me!! I ran a total of 26.2 miles to get the medal this summer on paper. I ran more than that, but it feels good to stay motivated throughout your pregnancy.

Last week was a very trying "race" for me. It had a few hills from one of the toughest runs in CNY, the Mountain goat!!! It also was a rainy, chilly mess. I really struggled with heart rate and breathing. Its getting to the point where my runs are really slowing down and are a little more cumbersome these days. Im glad I had my good friend running with me to keep me company

Last weeks race was A run for their lives, this event benefits the Carol M Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund and brings runners through Thornden Park, University Neighborhoods, and along the Connective Corridor! There is a 15K and 5K.

It was nice to see people I haven't seen in a while. It was also nice of all the surprised looks and great jobs I got!! It kept me moving to the finish even with the ran and chill!!

At the end was hot chocolate and a pumpkin muffin. I was in heaven since everything pumpkin seems to suit my fancy lately!!

Counting down the weeks when I will see my precious little one!! Im so excited I cannot wait!!

Happy Training!
