A HUGE Confession

Ok, you all know that I've missed you all, right?  I've been a very bad runner blogger these past few weeks.  But, I'd like to say that I have a very good reason for the extended absence.  So, here I go...

I hate running.

HAHA. Just kidding!  Me?  Hate running? Of course not!  Almost had you for a moment there, huh?  Hee hee.  Anyway, I hate to say it, but I've been kind of lying to you all.  My foot has been fantastic and hasn't been giving me as much grief as I let on a while back.  In fact, it's not even a problem anymore.  But why have I lied?  Trust me, I didn't want to, and I hate keeping stuff from my friends/blogging buddies.  Truth is....I'm pregnant.  Nope, not joking about this one.  Little 'ol me is going to be a mum. :)

There. The secret's out.  *HUGE SIGH*

That's the reason my pace has been slow for me and that I haven't been logging as much time on the blog/treadmill.  Truthfully, I was freaked out and pretty stressed about everything (new job, the break-in, and now I'm growing a little human??? woah there!).

In all seriousness, Trav and I are really excited.  :)  The little goober is due 11/9, and you know it's going to be a runner.  Or some sort of athlete.  With asthma.  And probably bad feet.  Hee hee.

Yup, running with a baby here at the Mercer Half Marathon! 

Ok. I feel a zillion times better now.

And not to get all Dr. Phil on ya, but, I know for me, because I had such a great mom that I cannot wait to pass that along to my children, as I'm sure you do. Congratulations!!

  45. over from Tall Mom on the Run - congratulations! I can't believe you ran a 1/2 with a baby! That is amazing. Seriously. I did nothing with either of my pregnancies (hence why the running now LOL). Good luck!! I will be praying that morning sickness does not hit you so that you can continue running.

  64. Zoe, being a mom and runner is the coolest thing ever. The kids of runners are different from other kids. They don't get that, "I'm so embarrassed attitude." My two older kids are both teenagers and think I am totally cool because I am so fit. That is a great feeling. Congratulations and good luck. BTW, you need to change your Who Am I section to add "Mom-to-Be" and for fun you could add "to the future Paula Radcliffe."

    ReplyDelete
  65. Zoe I'm so late in reading this, I just read this today!!! Congrats on the bebe, that's awesome! I'm the mom of two kiddos, now aged 10 and 7 (almost 8). Running gets kind of weird for a bit, but it all evens out in the end. YAY, you!!!!
