running while pregnant
I did not run at all with my first pregnancy. I ran prior to conceiving but pretty much stopped all physical activity when I learned I was pregnant. With my second, I ran until about 14 weeks -- when I began doing more walking than running. My "running" pace had slowed to a fast walk and even three miles felt like too much (and took too much time!). That's when I threw in the towel. I can't imagine running through a pregnancy myself, but I think it's awesome when another woman can -- and does!
A running pal locally ran the Chicago Marathon yesterday. She passed Amber out on the course and said she was amazed that this woman was out there running. The story is on every website, but here's a link if you need one. Chicago Marathon
