Hi, My name is Vanessa and I'm so excited to have found this site! Its great to finally find a group of like minded girls! Each of you are so amazing, hard working and inspiring!I love it!

I live in Chicago with my husband and two very energetic boys ages 22 months and 4. I am currently 25 weeks pregnant with another boy! Talk about testosterone overload! I need to run to get a break and some silence! : )
I have been a runner all my life, running in high school and college. I was inspired to run my first marathon after having my first son. It was such a moving experience that i felt that I could do anything. I decided to register for the Arizona Rock and Roll Marathon and had such an amazing experience that I have been hooked ever since! Since then I have run 4 half marathons and the 2007 Chicago Marathon. I have recently started a running group in my area; Lincoln Park Moms on the Run, as a fun and exciting way to meet other like minded moms and live a healty life.I cant wait to get to know all of you!

Good for you for organizing a running group. I always thought I was a solo runner until I needed to loose some baby weight and thought I'd join a few friends for a run a couple of times a week. It's very cliche' but it really has changed my life. I am now officially a group runner and have made wonderful friends along the way.

Welcome to the blog. We hope you'll share your expertise with us and also your pregnancy joys and pains.
