Show her some love in the comments section below. – Congratulations Heather on the birth birth to your beautiful baby girl!
My name is Heather and I blog at HeatherRunsFast. As my blog title suggests, I love running! I got into running almost 8 years ago doing a 5k and never turned back. I thrive off of the race atmosphere and runner’s high. I wanted to get faster and go farther! I’ve done 9 marathons, including Boston and too many races of shorter distances to count.
I’m married to a wonderful man who supports me 100%. We are a great team! After scaling back the running and some infertility struggles, I finally got pregnant in March of this year, bringing us a Christmas baby! I’ve always been a health nut and love to eat and make nutritious food, but I’m all about the 80/20 and definitely love my indulgences!
I love everything pumpkin (so cliche) and am so excited for fall! My hope is to be active up until the end of pregnancy and am lifting weights (Body Pump is my fave!), ellipticalling (that’s what I call it at least) and walking.
Sadly, I’m afraid my running days are coming to an end, but I know I need to do what’s right for my body now and that there will be plenty of time post pregnancy to run… at least I hope It’s all about the bigger picture- our precious baby girl!
