Excited to See Flo

So back in March when I made the appointment to see the fertility doctor, I decided I was going to do something positive for me, something that I could succeed at, something to take my mind off this crazy IF world I was entering...I decided to run a half marathon. I am in no way, shape or form a runner nor do I pretend to be so this alone was going to be a task.

I can happily tell you that this past Saturday, I completed my first half marathon and under my goal of three hours with a time of 2 hours 46 minutes and 42 seconds. It was a pretty awesome day! Prior to the race, my ovulation calendar was telling me that I was supposed to start my period on race day-ugh...not what I wanted!!! Luckily, Friday night before I went to bed, Flo arrived and for the first time in 8 months, I was actually excited to see her. Funny how those things work out.

I must tell you that I've really enjoyed the training and running. It HAS given me something to focus on instead of not getting pregnant and hopefully it's making me a healthier person which has to be good, right? I plan on taking a rest week and then finding my next running goal which may take me up to the month where we decide to try IVF, weird to think about, hmm...

Wow, that's awesome! I actually started running about a monthish ago after our failed cycle and us deciding to take a break. I feel a lot better too. I'm up to between 4-5.5 miles and ran 5 times last week =). That's awesome you ran a 1/2. I'm actually looking for some hot pink running shoes now too since I'm all into it. I might get some for my bday =).

Congrats, that's a lot of running! I'm glad it makes you feel better and gives you something to focus on other than TTC.

Congrats on the half-marathon, thats a great accomplishment!!! Nice calorie burner too!!! Anything that keeps our minds off IF is a Win-win!
