Tempting Fate

I’ve done it. I’ve officially tempted fate.


I signed up for the 2013 Women’s Half Marathon in St. Petersburg, FL next November.

I’ve been registered for this race for the past three years, but I haven’t run it yet. Why? One word…


2010 – Pregnant with the Mini Athlete.

2011 – Ran the 5k because I wasn’t ready to run the half marathon after having the Mini Athlete.

2012 – The week I gave birth to Little Miss Athlete.

I’m really not ready for three kids under the age of three, so let’s hope I haven’t jinxed myself by signing up for this race!

In all seriousness, I can’t tell you how excited I am to have my next half marathon on the calendar. Just three weeks until I get to start running again!

A few years ago, I never would have pictured myself getting excited and anxious to run again. Funny how things change!

    That’s fantastic, well done! In June next year I will have three under three…. yikes! But then I’m going to enjoy getting my fitness back after that. It’s wonderful to have goals to aspire to.

  3. LOL! If I were in your shoes, I am not sure I would have had the nerve to sign up for this race. It would be just my luck.

  4. Haha you are tempting fate! Good luck and can’t wait to follow your post pregnancy fitness journey again 🙂

  5. That is fantastic. Being able to sign up for a race gives you something to train for. I envy you for that. 🙂
