I want to complete this race for not only myself, but for my little human that I just brought into this world. I want to prove to myself that I can do anything, and be a good role model to him. Prior to finding out I was pregnant I was on a path of losing weight and getting more fit. Pregnancy sure does some crazy things to your body and you are kinda there just for the ride. Throughout the pregnancy I lost 33 lbs from being diagnosed with Hyperemisis Gervadis. I was admitted into the hospital numerous times. I developed gestational diabetes and than kidney stones, all throughout the journey. i did gain back everything lost within the last couple months of pregnancy and my only goal now is to have a beautiful son out of this. As I write this I am 39 weeks and 1 day pregnant. I have yet to meet my amazing son but I am already looking to make the best impression I can on him. My first step in the right direction is to begin training as soon as possible and be able to finish this race. I got to experience this race once before but on the side lines, watching my mother-in-law start and finish this race after beating Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. I've never seen anyone so tired and elated all my life. All I could think was, "I am going to do that one day". Hopefully she will run/walk it with me.
