Believe it or not, there’s less than two weeks left in 2016. Where has the past year gone?!? I know that they say that time goes by more quickly as you get older, and that it goes even faster once you have kids. Boy is that true! It feels like this past year has just zipped right by me!
I loved being able to share my training, and more importantly, my postpartum fitness journey, here on the blog over the course of this past year. My most popular posts from this past year were:
Rock ‘n’ Roll DC marked my return to racing after having little man. Since I used this race as a training run for ZOOMA Annapolis, I ran the first eight miles and then walked the rest of the race. I loved every minute of this race and felt so accomplished when I crossed the finish line at two and a half months postpartum.
I am so excited that my big goal for 2017 will be to train for and run my first marathon. I cannot wait to run the streets of Chicago in October, and to represent Team RMHC on race day.
Ironically, my third most popular post of the year was my self reflection on why back in the Spring I wasn’t ready to commit to a marathon. My how things have changed in just a few short months! (You can read about why I feel more ready to tackle the challenge of a marathon here.)
After deferring our Wine and Dine Half Marathon registration in 2015, I was so excited to register for the 2016 race. And I was even more excited when Preston agreed to upgrade my registration from the half marathon to the two race challenge as my birthday present.
After maintaining a healthy and fit pregnancy, I offered readers insight into how I managed to only gain 23 pounds while pregnant. Never once was my OB worried about my weight, and was very supportive of me remaining active throughout my pregnancy.
