Change of Plans...

After several weeks of silence regarding my running journey, I'm sure you've all been sitting on the edge of your seat wondering what in the world I'm doing... all two of you that read my blog. ;)

Well, there is good news and bad news.

The bad news?

It looks like my Portland Marathon 2010 dreams are officially going to be put to rest.

The good news?

I've got a new running partner...

That's right.  The Congdon family is adding a new little addition sometime spring 2011.

After "starting over" with my mileage twice due to back injuries, it seems logical to me to put my marathon dreams in the "not yet, but someday" category and put my focus on having a fit and healthy pregnancy.  I'm sure it's possible for people to train and race during pregnancy - and I hope to get in a few 5ks & 10ks along the way - but I don't need the pressure of completing a marathon riding on my shoulders while I'm growing a new person.

So there you have it.

My marathon journey is taking a little detour.

Stay tuned for future discussions regarding pregnancy fitness!

  2. You have been on an incredible journey already and it will continue with baby Congdon #2 and beyond!!


  3. Congrats Becca Sue! I ran my entire pregnancy and even ran a 5k! Just wanted to encourage you to be careful... we don't know for sure but there is a chance that my running right at the end helped to cause the placental abruption. I will be running my next pregnancy whenever that is, but will definitely be more careful. Good luck and I look forward to reading about your journey!

  4. Congrats on a new running partner..Good luck.
