OK - I've got no excuses...

My friend put a link up on my Facebook yesterday for me to check something out...

I click on it to read the story...

Its about the woman who gave birth right after running the Chicago Marathon.

(She's a red head... you gotta watch out for those... they do some crazy things! :) )


I know runners are a tad motivated & push their bodies in ways most people cant understand... well, just chalk this up to that list.  Maybe with a bonus for "extra" crazy... but in a good way.

This mom obviously was in good shape if she's heading out to do a marathon at 39 weeks.

I think running while pregnant is amazing!  I ran my 2nd half marathon & saw a VERY pregnant lady out on the road.  It was actually inspiring.  But luckily, she didnt have a little baby running right out, there in front of me.  I'd take off the other direction.. EEK!!!! Panic!!!

I told my friend that I cant hardly run even when I have a FOOD BABY ... so I applaud this lady. 

I guess I have no more excuses on days I dont want to run.

My knee hurts?  Try running while 9 months pregnant
I'm tired?  Try carrying a HUMAN inside of you & then talk about tired
My feet hurt?  Try running to the hospital while your in labor & then think about your FEET hurting...

...yeah - no excuses....


  1. While that story is somewhat inspirational, I still think that is CRAZY.

    Like, seven kinds of crazy.

    Just sayin'.

  2. It is so impressive!! I get tired walking down the driveway to the mailbox, let alone run while pregnant!! :)

  3. I read about her in today's paper and almost fell out of my chair! Talk about a SUPER WOMAN! Man, oh, man...I still can't get over it!

  4. Ummm..... WOW!!! Okay, so this is probably silly of me, but I didn't even know that was possible!!

    I mean seriously..... that is amazing!!

    Love you dear friend ~~ Dawn

    PS Part 3 is up =)

  5. When I was pregnant, I felt normal. It was only when I looked in the mirror or walked past a store window that I went,"Gah, I'm huge!" Looking back, I was never huge, but in that moment.

    So maybe, she learned she was pregnant, felt good, and just kept going. Sore knees, elbows, backs, etc. can be much worse than pregnancy! (Though I know many women have it much harder than I did!)

  6. wow what an inspiration! i still think she is crazy. i hate running and especially being 39 weeks along?! no no no.

  7. that's crazy!! what a woman...i hope the finish line was the hospital :-)

  8. As always I love your sense of humor! You continually crack me up. Insert BWAHAHA here.

    I've heard of doctors encouraging their patients to get out and walk to encourage the baby to come if they're at their due date or late but this one takes the cake. You're right. I HAVE NO EXCUSES!
