Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon

Our baby completed a half marathon at 6 weeks!

I was a little nervous, being new to this whole pregnancy thing. I had no idea if it was safe to be running, particularly that far, while pregnant. I started trying to come up with ideas that I could use to tell my family why I couldn’t run the half that I had signed up for months before. We’re not a family of quitters so there’s no way I could have told them I just couldn’t do it. And I’m really bad at faking sick.

Luckily internet research told us that a lady had run a marathon while 9 months pregnant! The whole thing, I couldn’t even imagine.

The half marathon went well and I’m ecstatic to say that I finished and would probably do it again. I did see a sign along the way that made me smile – apparently a lady named Patricia was running for two 🙂
