I ran a 10k race yesterday, with my 12 week fetus! 🙂 Given the nausea, insomnia and fatigue of the past 6 weeks, I didn’t get to train much for this race and my only goal was to finish it, and I did! I am so happy for participating at all! Yay for us! 🙂

I had a lady today tell me that running while pregnant gives it a 100% chance of “coming out with some deformity” I looked at her (she’s obese) and said, “obviously all of your children came out perfect.” I don’t think she got it.
Seriously though, good for you!

Seriously, that is amazing and wonderful! I can’t run and I’m not carrying another human inside me.

That’s awesome! Congrats!!
I’m a runner, 7 weeks along now, and I was wondering if you had to adjust your pace? I would run a 9 minute mile before I got pregnant, and now I’m scared that if I do anything over 10 minutes that it’s going to hurt the baby in some way. So you’re definintely an inspiration!

@franks.katie: Yes I definitely had to adjust my pace. As I said, I have had a hard time training because I’ve been feeling miserable for weeks now (it’s getting better now, yay!). Also, my heartrate goes up faster and I find myself out of breath over smaller efforts than before. I did the exact same race last year and finished in 15 minutes less than I did now while pregnant.
I found a pace I was comfortable with in the beginning and just kept it. People were passing and I felt slow; but I eventually caught up with some people who had passed me and they were then walking and out of breath and I was going steady and strong.

Awesome! I am always impressed when I have my arse handed to me in a race by a visibly pregnant lady.
