Ambassador Spotlight: Kristina Murphy


by For Two Fitness

As part of our Ambassador Spotlight series, we’d like to introduce you to Kristina Murphy of the Shiawase Life blog.  Read more to find out her tips for staying active and looking good through pregnancy.

Ever since I crossed my first 5K finish line in 2010, running has been a big part of my life – it’s taught me to make healthier choices, helped me meet amazing friends, and most importantly, has inspired me to take more risks and push myself.

Earlier this year, my husband and I were returning from a dream trip to Japan, where I completed the Tokyo Marathon (my 14th full marathon) when the topic of children and family came up. It’s always been something we’ve wanted, and so we decided it was time to make that a priority – and fortunately for us, we learned that we’d be expecting our first child soon thereafter!

pineview5k5Since that first positive pregnancy test, I knew that running would be a vital part of staying happy and healthy for the next nine months. Of course, I had to make a few adjustments – namely, a big slow down – in mileage, and pace – as well as a reassessment of my running wardrobe! Thankfully, For Two Fitness was there to help with those accommodations, and I look forward to staying active throughout the journey!

I recently announced our happy news on my blog and its special significance to my relationship with running. In fact, I’ve likened the next few months as my longest, and happiest training cycle ever! Follow along as I share the ups and downs of 40-weeks, all in style and comfort!

Follow along with Kristina on her journey on her blog, Shiawase Life.
