I&#39;m still running, just not as far (or as fast). I even ran a half with my dad at 10 weeks. We took it slow and steady.<br />Since baby isn&#39;t due until May, I don&#39;t think I&#39;ll get to 1,000 for 2012, either. Maybe I should do the math and prorate the rest of the year for my goal?<br />As always, your blog inspires me that it is possible to have a big girl job, a full family life, and still run like crazy.

I really want to test out the ultra waters as well. I&#39;d totally do Rainier to Ruston with you if I were closer (I&#39;m moving to the Seattle area, but it won&#39;t be until late August)! Lol on your running form. My running partner told me the other day she can tell which runner I am because of my form. Not entirely sure if that&#39;s a good thing!

If I felt like I needed to sleep I&#39;d totally bail on the race and sleep!<br /><br />I&#39;m pushing it to make 1000. A couple of next to nothing months early in the year thanks to injury really put a kink in my plans, but I think I can knock out enough to make it there by Dec 31! If not I&#39;ll at least know I worked for it till the end. :)Cateyhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/04313815726428345524noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-533652444789928887.post-70076932689968133722011-10-20T15:05:43.136-07:002011-10-20T15:05:43.136-07:00Lucky you, getting to go to Maui for work! I ran ...Lucky you, getting to go to Maui for work! I ran that race last year! Couple of things: Hills. Lots of them. Fun race, tons of teams and people in costume...all of whom peeled off at the 5K turnaround. I swear there were maybe 25 people who did the 10K, and it was lonely. But the course support was fantastic - they had kids out at every turn, lots of water stations, and EVERYONE was thanking me as I ran. Very fun after party, too. Mostly locals run this, but since you are there, you definitely should do this!Shelleyhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/09268130692900152965noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-533652444789928887.post-48957030928054376182011-10-20T14:54:02.684-07:002011-10-20T14:54:02.684-07:00Hi, Tall Mom, I just emailed you about the sparkl...Hi, Tall Mom,<br /><br />I just emailed you about the sparkle skirt.
