Since this will be the last baby I birth… I’m determined to get myself back together asap. I know this will take a lot of determination and discipline, and quite frankly I’m a little nervous about it. I’ve gained 52lbs this pregnancy and tacking on a few years since my last pregnancy I’m pretty sure it isn’t going to just “fall off” like the last two. I decided I needed a deadline… something to work toward.
A few months ago I found this website for The Color Run– a colorful 5k run. Well, at that point there wasn’t a race anywhere near my town, but there was one in September in DC. I contemplated going to visit my mom that weekend and running there. However, I kind of forgot about the run for a bit and then yesterday decided to look up some different 5k runs nearby. I also decided to check the Color Run website, in which I found that they’d added a ton of new locations- one being just a half hour from me!
I signed up. I’m in. July 22 I’m running a 5k and I’m going to have a blast! I’m hoping to get 3 other friends to sign up on my team so I won’t be running alone (or at least won’t be in the race alone). I’m super excited and even MORE reason to be excited to have baby sis here so I can begin getting back to normal and start training!
