A Double Detour in the Journey...

So I have not written on this blog in quite sometime.  I am not even sure that I have any followers left but I thought today would the prefect day to start blogging again.  There is a slightly different focus on my blog and today I thought I would share what that focus is and why it changed.

I chose to write today for a couple of reasons:

Today was the day I was supposed to run my first marathon.  Which is the whole reason I started this blog to document that journey.

Today I ran two miles after a whole month off... it was tough and challenging. 

However, I have a good reason well ...two good reasons that I did  not run that marathon and two mile is kinda tough for me.

We are expecting twins!!  I am 15 weeks along and am due in November.  The twin part of the pregnancy was a complete shock but also a wonderful surprise.

I have had a very rough pregnancy and was getting sick up to ten times a day up till about a week ago.  I am finally feeling better.  I was not able to run much during that time due to being so sick and running made it worse.

Since I could not train for the marathon properly I had to postpone to till next.  It was a tough decision but really the best one.

Now that I am feeling better... I have started running and working out again.  It is not as much as my first pregnancy  but I need to listen to my body and do what is best for the two babies on board. 

I am still on my journey to the a marathon is has just taken a wonderful detour and I cant wait to see how the journey unfolds.

I am happy to be back running and blogging thought!!
