Three Things Thursday....Half-Way Mark

Tuesday I was looking over my stats so far for this year.  I actually hadn't even looked at them too closely until I was responding to a post by Pavement Runner.....and I must say I impressed myself.  Considering that I have been pregnant this whole year thus far, I'm encouraged by these numbers!  It's good to look back at what you've done from time to time to remind yourself how far you have come!
Here are some stats from this half of the year!
1.  Miles, miles, miles....So far this year I have legged out 660 miles!!  While my mileage is slowing down I'm so encouraged by being able to run over 600 miles in 6 months of pregnancy!  I know I talk about it quite a bit but I didn't run with my first pregnancy, too scared that something bad would happen.  So this time around I am encouraged by what my body has allowed me to do!
2.  Race away!....During these 6 months I have certainly been able to get my race on!  I've run a 20 mile race on Martha's Vineyard, 3 half marathons, a Jamestown Bridge 10k, a handful of virtual races, and a local 5k pushing the chickie!  It has been a different mindset racing pregnant and I enjoy having the pressure off a little when it comes to times! 
3.  Shred it up!...I'm loving Bobbi's Summer Shreds from Nhershoes!  She started another one for the month of July and she never fails to kick my bum in gear!  The first Shred was a sweatfest and I'm sure the next one will be too!! 

How have you rocked your first 6 months of 2012?  Brag away!!!  I want to celebrate with you!

    I was afraid to look back on my resolutions, and for good reason. I need to post them all over my home so I don't forget.
