I’m not going to pretend like it wasn’t hard. Every step I ran I could feel the extra 12ish pounds I’ve already put on with baby #3. It’s amazing what a few extra pounds does to one’s endurance. But I did it. And I did it in under an hour which was my goal. 56 minutes and 18 seconds to be exact. It was fun and I am proud of myself. I just kept thinking about how strong Lincoln is and how I could be strong and do hard things like he is. It was very therapeutic. Now the real challenge is going to be to continue working out for the next 5 months with no race on the calendar or gym membership. Yikes.
