Month 4

My baby is now 4 months old! Its amazing how much they change in the first year! Im loving being a "new" mommy again. Despite all the late night awakenings, the colic, I wouldn't change it for the world! Im so blessed!

Its been hard on training having a newborn as he is a very needy little one!! I am still working out about 4-5 times a week. On my runs, if it is nice out, I strap the baby into his jogging stroller and off I go! Good thing the Parkway is so close to my house! He loves the ride!

I have lost most of my baby weight but just cant seem to shake the last 10 pounds right now. I am cutting calories but not too much to Jeopordize my milk production as I am breastfeeding. People ask me how I do this with training and the only thing I do differently is try to stay really hydrated to continue to produce milk.

The Weather has been beautiful here in NY!! Saturday, I road with some great people for 35.5 miles while training for the Tour de Cure at Verona Beach State Park on June 9th. This is a ride to support the American Diabetes Association find ways to beat the debilitating effects of diabetes. If you are interested in donating to this great cause, you can go to
Please consider donating. Im sure you know someone who has been affected by diabetes!!!

Yesterday, I ran the Mountain Goat 10 Miler here in Syracuse. Once again the temperatures soared and it was a hot run! I did great the first mile, 9:17 but then it went downhill after that! The hills really got me! Overall I was happy with my time of 1 hour 45 min. I need to give myself some credit as it has only been 4 months!!

Hope everyone is staying active and enjoying this weather!!

Happy Training!
