Race Review: Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus Half Marathon

This past Sunday, I ran my 10th half marathon – and 3rd half marathon while pregnant! To be very honest, I have barely run in the last month.  The pregnancy-related fatigue, the busy-ness of trying to build a support system up here, doctor appointments, and dealing with the demands of two adorable, but very needy … More Race Review: Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus Half Marathon

That’s right.  One of my goals for 2013 was to complete a 26.2 mile race, otherwise known as the marathon.  As of today, I have run 4 half marathons (13.1 miles), with my fifth scheduled … More Cold Feet
