Another reason I run........

I am a diabetic.

7 months ago I had blood work done and my A1C was 5.7

My most recent blood work shows me at 5.0

I have gained over 20 lbs. since getting pregnant but my health is improving???

How is that even possible?

The answer is RUNNING!!!

Lots of it.

I spent a good 18+ months prior to getting pregnant running.

I ran my first half marathon at 8 weeks pregnant.

The benefits of running last a long time.

My Hgb A1C is not just normal but EXCELLENT!

I am a diabetic, and my labs are EXCELLENT!

I think I will keep running as my exercise of chioce.

This little girl is such a champ. She lasted 2.5 miles out on the trails today. Her longest ride yet. :)

Week 3 of my training program is going well. M-Th at least 30 minutes of walk/jogging and between 3-5 miles on Saturdays. Feeling pretty amazing. Pace and time goals are out the window this part of my pregnancy, just trying to stay healthy so I can get back to running as soon as possible after delivery. :)
