I received an email last week that caught me off guard.
Oh riighhhtt…I did register for the Women’s Half Marathon, didn’t I?
I wonder what the women in Corral 3 would think if I showed up with my gigantic belly on race day?
No, I’m not even remotely thinking about running/walking the half marathon. I’m not THAT crazy.
I could drop down and do the 5k. That’s actually what I did last year.
Here are some factors going into my decision:
- I’ll be almost 38 weeks pregnant.
- I haven’t walked more than a mile at a time in a long while – but I do still feel like I could.
- It’s a walker-friendly course – but you still have to finish in an hour.
- I’m planning to deliver at a hospital in St Pete (where the race is) so if I go into labor, at least I’ll be close!
So what are your thoughts on the 5k? Ambitious or just plain crazy?
