I ran the Phoenix Half Marathon and had a respectable time for a 12 week pregnant and nursing lady.
The most noteworthy thing about this particular race was how COLD the start was. It was unseasonably cold for Phoenix, and I found myself shivering in my little skivvies to stay warm. I was desperate enough to pick up someone's discarded sweater into the first mile. I wore that sucker for 4 miles!!! This was the first race where all four sisters ran. That was a fun treat since running a race is a very individual thing. We didn't run together at all on the course
Another highlight for me was that I ran a 7:01 13th mile. I am proud of that considering my "condition". I hate the stereotype about not being able to do anything because you are pregnant. Give me a break. Exercise is the number one reason I have easy pregnancies. Get off the couch and move. Hopefully next year I'll be running the full marathon after having another great pregnancy.
