I Have a Secret

Some of you may have noticed that my blog has not been as active in the past few weeks and that is because I haven't been running as much. If you've been able to read between the lines, you might have figured out a few clues here and there.

I DNFed my first half marathon.

I didn't drink any beer at the half marathon after party or the Chicago Marathon kickoff event.

I backed out of running a spring marathon.

I have a secret that I've had such a hard time keeping from all of you for this long... I now have something in common with Lauren Fleshman and Kate Middleton. And that is....

I'm Pregnant.

I'm hoping not to turn this into a pregnancy blog, but let's be honest. It will be really hard for that not to happen. BUT, I will keep the recipes (and my awesome food photography) coming and I will run for as long as I can! I hope you'll stick around for the ride! :)

  5. Awesome news! I knew you were leaning in that direction. In fact, I thought sure this was the year. Then with everything that happened within the last couple months, I was like, yep ... the time is NOW! Congrats. I can't wait to hear all about it. And don't worry about running, you have the rest of your life to run but you only have 9 months to grow this lil one. That's your current priority..

  8. Right now I'm just listening to my body. I'm enjoying walking more than running so I just run occasionally. Hence, why I haven't been out with the FNRC in weeks! Lol. It was a hard mental hump for me to get over at first, but once I stood back and looked at it from a different perspective, I have forever to run. I don't have forever to have kids. (Not to mention, the longer I wait, the slower my age group qualifying time for Boston becomes... HAHA). Thanks for the support!

  13. Thanks! Pepper still has no idea what is in store for her. I know there are lots of tips on how to get a dog ready to be at home with a baby so we may need to do some prep work. Lol.

    And it probably will turn into a pregnancy blog anyways, so I'm glad you'll enjoy reading along! :)

  22. Haha, thanks! I was secretly taking notes during your consultation too on how I could convert the concepts to maternity wear. ;) The rule of 3 is something I've started incorporating and I just feel more put together with 3 pieces!

  23. Even though I knew this post was coming, the way you built it up kind of brought tears to my eyes! Obviously, I'm very excited for you :) And go ahead and talk about pregnancy! Especially as it relates to running. And be honest! Don't sugar coat it.

  24. Thanks so much! You're so sweet! I usually post what I want to write about anyways, so it is good to see that there are many folks that will be along for the ride! I'm excited to share my journey! I don't really have a history of sugar coating things so I'll try to keep that going.

  32. FINALLY I CAN COMMENT!! You are one of THREE friends announcing pregnancies today! What event caused all these babies?? Either way, congrats!! I had a sneaking suspicion that this would be the year for you. Unofficial ragnar mascot - Baby DUB!

  33. Congratulations!!!! I didn't put all of that together, which is kind of surprising since I know so many pregnant gals right now! And I think all of our blogs evolve over time, so it'd make sense that Baby Wilson be a big part of yours :)
