9 Races in 9 Months (again!)

When I was pregnant with Kevin, I made it a goal of mine to run one race for each month of my pregnancy. I was so happy to be able to complete this goal, and wrote this post recapping them all. This time around I decided I wanted to do the same thing. Running a race per month kept me motivated and gave me monthly milestones to look forward to as I progressed through my pregnancy. Since it’s officially baby month, I am happy to say that I have completed my goal! I ran a total of 9 races while pregnant from September to May – 3 half marathons, 1 10K, 4 5Ks, and one fun run with my little boy! Here are all of the races I did with the original recaps linked below.

09/06/14 – Arlington 9-11 Memorial 5K (33:19) *4 weeks* [I found out I was pregnant the morning of this race!]

I am so happy that I was able to make such special memories with my newest little running buddy Kyler, as well as all the friends that I was able to run with throughout my pregnancy. This may be the last time I ever get to run races while proudly rocking a baby belly, and I definitely think I made the most of this time 🙂
