Arma and I at the start of the 5k at Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon. It was a beautiful day in Toronto, cool, sunny & not as windy as last year. A lot of people are very surprised to see us still running through our pregnancies, I am now 35 weeks, and arma is 31 weeks! It's a lot of fun to see people's reactions and hear the cheering from the sidelines. Running Mommies do get a lot of extra support!
Aside from feeling much more front & top heavy, it still feels great to be out there getting some exercise and participating in this great race event. It was great to see all the ladies out in the skirts enjoying the 5k, half marathon and full maraton! Race footage coming soon!
Mid pack at the 5k start!
