One + one = three

One + one = three

In case you didn’t hear the news, we’re expecting a mini Turner in August! I made Pete “race” the Shamrock 8k with me this past weekend and we ran it in 36:23. My damn shoe came untied in the last mile and I decided to tie it. Then afterwards I was mad for stopping because I would have been under 36 minutes. Then I got mad at myself for caring because 35 minutes isn’t fast either, and (anyway…) I’m 16 weeks pregnant. Geez.

Since there isn’t a lot out there for pregnant runners, I promise to share details about how my “training” has been going. Some of it has been good (especially lately), and some of it has been ugly.

Also, Shamrock was a success for Piece of Cake Running! We had four runners in the half marathon and all four PR’ed. They also got their money’s worth at the beer tent afterwards (we like to celebrate at Piece of Cake)…

  1. That picture is great! Congrats on a successful Shamrock, sounds like coaching is going fantastic for you. Also, a 17 week pregnant 36 minute 8K is pretty amazing. At that far along my workout was “Walk to Mailbox….walk back.” 😉

    • Thanks Kris! Sorry to miss Boston this year, but I’ll be cheering for you from VA. A bit too long of a race for me these days, lol…

  2. Yay! A new blog post!! I love them because it is like reading someone’s diary without getting in trouble for it 🙂 Way to keep running while pregnant…it is so good for you and baby! Just don’t beat my preggers time at the OK5k! (Ok, you’ll definitely beat it. But, to be fair, I wasn’t training with Piece of Cake yet!) I can’t wait to hear more about your pregnancy miles….

  3. Congrats Mollie! I love that you were mad about your time…and then mad about caring! That’s something only somebody who truly LOVES to race could understand! Best wishes! Mo 🙂
