The early weeks of pregnancy were rough. Getting off the couch a daily struggle. I hit the 2nd trimester and began to have enough energy to start training again. Feeling like I’m in that sweet spot now where baby girl is giving me some good vibes physically, and as a runner it almost feels like track season to me, without the looming racing schedule. I head to practice excited to see who I’ll match up with, who I can maybe help pace, what my body will let me do in the day. It is truly a privilege to be healthy enough to train during this pregnancy, to have the support of my teammates and coaches, to get called a badass at times (which we all deserve to be called) and to hopefully show other pros if they want a family it’s ok to take the break in their career and go for it. To show women our bodies can handle it, if we choose, not everyone and that’s ok if we stay on the couch and don’t feel motivated. Every pregnancy experience is different and I am simply sharing how mine is playing out. But if we can we choose to be champions and mothers, am I right @andmother_org. We simply need the support and the belief we can!
