An Exciting Announcement

I don't have a cute way to say it, and my husband and I didn't take any of those cute announcement pictures you see on Facebook, so I'll just say it: I'm pregnant! We're expecting a baby mid-July, and I just completed the first trimester.

What does this mean for Treading on the Heights? I've gotten the go-ahead from my doctor to keep running, and I plan to do so until as late as possible in the pregnancy. So, I'm excited to blog about pregnancy and running!

In the early weeks, I didn't have morning sickness, but I felt sick if I got too hungry, including while running. I was also constantly exhausted, and didn't manage to run more than about five miles at a time, running four or five times a week. That has passed, for the most part. I've recently completed a few nine-milers and am back to running six days a week.

When we found out about the baby (and even before), I really enjoyed reading blogs about running through pregnancy, and I'm looking forward to sharing my journey here!
