So i was not sure what I would end up with but expected to be more around 2 hours so I am very happy with my time and I felt great the whole race.  It was cold and started raining in the 1st mile and turned to snow by the end.  Was soaked to the bone and frozen when I finished.  But had a good race 20 week pregnant.  Ran with Ericka until mile 6.5 and she pulled ahead, caught back up with her after a few miles and we ran together until the last mile and I pulled ahead.  Good times:)

Started at wills and ran up the path with Ericka, Luz, & Brune.  Calfs and feet were crampy on the way up.  The weather was perfect running weather until it started to rain but we were almost finished.

Felt really good for this race.  Started with Ericka, Luz, and Rachael and ran the first 2 pretty easy.  Once I got to the damn I was on my own and felt really good so I just let myself flow down the hill.  Felt a little tired on the parkway but was able to maintain a good pace.  Pubic bone is sore know which means I probably will be cutting these half marathons out, but we will see.  Apparently I had quite the little following, I had the words baby on board on the back of my shirt, and several people told me they used me for a pacer.  I also noticed when I passed people they would speed up for a bit and pass me back, just can't let the pregnant lady beat ya (most of them I would pass back).

I absolutely loved this half.

8:50, 8:51, 8:10, 8:14, 7:46, 8:03, 8:16, 8:08, 7:49, 7:39, 8:20, 8:13, 8:12

Didn't stop my watch so not sure on the last .1 but I was passin people.  This time matches my slowest  non-pregnant half:) 

Watched the marathon finishers for a long while and then had get back to our hotel for checkout.  It is so fun to be able to see the full marathoners finish.

I decided I needed a day off today, so I filled my day with other things so I wouldn't run.

6 miles with my dog on the jogging path.  Pubic bone sore, calfs and arches cramping, and tired.  Man o man I really don't know how I ran 2 half marathons the way I did cause running seems hard and those seemed a lot easier.

My pubic bone was sore after running yesterday, I am not sure if this is the end of my running but I hope not.  I am just not ready to give it up yet.  I think I will just try every other day and see how that works.  

50 mins on elliptical.

Took Brune out for an easy run.  I found my belly band and tried that to see if it lessens the pubic bone pain.  It was a little better and had times were I couldn't feel it at all, but I still think I will have to cut back on the running.  Came home and did 20 mins on the elliptical and weights upper.

Met Ericka at Vivian Park to run with her for the end of her long run.  She started up at Wallsberg in the cold snowy wind.  Was pretty sore in the pubic bone and groin.

Avg. pace 8:50

took my dog on the trails, they were muddy and a little hard to run.  I didn't run the whole time did some walking too, probably ran 4.5 and walked the rest.  Feet crampy but pubic bone felt better, went to the chiropractor yesterday hoping that it will help.  It is not totally gone and won't be able to run all that much but I will take what I can get.

WT upper and abs.

School's out for summer! Yay.

Was feeling sad I couldn't go run on this beautiful morning.  I probably could have handled it just the kids school was so short today I didn't have time.  Did 40 mins on the elliptical, I am still planning on some running but mostly walking and cross training:(   Felt really good and pushed the RPM's today.

Took brune down to will's, started with a little walking but that was boring so I started to run.  This didn't feel to bad although I am sure it was super slow.  My calves and feet were crampy but only did a little bit of walking.  Felt better coming down the canyon, calves and feet don't cramp so much and only a little bit of pressure in the pubic bone,

Ran a loop from my house, warmed up with about .25 of walking that seems to help.  Pubic bone wasn't sore but feet were.
