Big News!

So I eluded to BIG NEWS on my last post. And since it's been shared with family and it's been shared on facebook (it's not official until it's facebook official, amiright?), now it's time to share with my blogging family!

My husband and I are expecting a little runner in the beginning of August! Everyone keeps telling my husband "good work," like he really had a hard job with this one! lol.

I'm about 11.5 weeks pregnant now. My ultrasound last week put me at 10 weeks. I have a half marathon on January 28th (F^3 Half Marathon), which I'm still planning on doing. I've gotten in two 10 mile training runs. I'm just planning on taking it easy and walking when necessary.  More on this half and another half soon. But baby is happily running with me in the womb! Go baby go!

I was just excited to share my news with you all. As much as I know not everyone wants this to turn into a baby blog, it's part of my life right now so it will be there. Hoping to have a good balance of baby, running, and life in the blog.

Baby is upside down - 10 week ultrasound

Our facebook announcement was triathlon themed. "New triathlon relay team member makes its debut August 2017!" Let's just say, some didn't get it or scrolled right past it. Oh well, we tried to be creative! In this photo, I'm the swimmer, Derek is the cyclist, and baby is the runner (we got baby shoes on clearance. Score!)

The below picture was taken before the one above and is considered the cutest "outtake" ever! I probably like it better than the original. Our dog, Camo, came and sat down like this with the baby shoes between her paws, ALL ON HER OWN! This was not a posed photo. I think it looks like she's protecting the baby. Awwww!!!! So much cuteness!

  1. Congratulations! I'm so excited for you guys! And personally, I don't care if it becomes a baby& pregnancy blog... there's always aspects of your life that will shine thru beyond just running and triathlons! Can't wait to hear more about how you're doing and how pregnancy has impacted your running!
