We are pleased to introduce you to Carlee Brandom, one of the newest For Two Fitness Fit Mom Ambassadors. Read more to learn all about Carlee.
I’m Carlee and I started my fitness journey as a swimmer. However, once college ended, and I didn’t have a team to train with, swimming felt more like work than fitness ever had. I decided to take up running. Since then I’ve run 10 marathons and countless other races. I qualified for Boston this last May and there is no way I could not run it this year. Therefore, I’ll be running it pregnant…like 8 months pregnant. I have no doubt that this will be more of a waddle, but unless it becomes a danger to me or the baby, I’m going to finish and earn that jacket!
My son, Gregory is 3 and he joins me for many of my runs. He’s actually completed 7 half marathons with me and still loves racing. When I was pregnant, with him I ran up until 2 days before he was born. I also teach spin classes and love being outside doing things like hiking. I still swim from time to time and think it’s one of the best sports out there. I think being a mom athlete is so important to my son, as he doesn’t seem to be too competitive. I don’t want him to think that if he isn’t into football he can’t be an athlete. Before I found swimming, I thought that because I couldn’t catch, I couldn’t be an athlete. Now I can’t imagine my life without being active.
