I am so inspired by your race! I want my body and my fitness back! I miss my mtn bike so bad it hurts! I love this baby and being pregnant is awesome but I need the adrenaline and endorphins that only endurance exercise and training can provide!!!I don't want to rush the pregnancy in any way but so much of my identity over the last few years is caught up in my fitness. I'm currently feeling lost without it. For those moms that read my blog, did you experience this identity crisis? How have your priorities, expectations, and identity evolved to include being a Momma and keeping up a fitness routine? That's all I have for today. I'm going to drag my butt out into this heat for a little 5k jog/ walk and see if I can't get my endorphins flowing!

Finding some motivation
A friend of my recently completed her first 70.3 triathlon. Congrats Holly! Great race! Her accomplishment has me thinking about fitness, pregnancy, and my postpartum fitness plans. I sent her this text message today
