Here's the 37 week belly bump shot! (Double click to expand)
Baby is considered full term now!
I can feel that he is dropping a bit, there is a lot more weight on my lower abdomen/pelvic region and I can feel a bit of pulling in my lower ligaments when I walk and jog, but I'm still trying to keep up the daily workouts whether it's a few mile jog, trail hike or even just a walk. It feels good to still be active and I'm told by a lot of physicians, nurses, midwifes, etc. that my active and fitness levels will pay off in an easier delivery and quicker recovery! I hope they are right!

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!
On to the race news! A Canadian marathon record was made today by John Kelai
won the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon Sunday in 2:09:30, the fastest marathon ever run in Canada! He passed last years champ Daniel Rono, a few hundred meters from the finish line.Rono ended up coming in second with 2:09:36

Danny Kassap of Toronto was the first Canadian in 2:17:20.
Asha Gigi of Ethiopia won the women's race hands down in 2:33:16, also course record for women & Lisa Harvey of Calgary came in first Canadian women in 2:48:46!

For the first time I witness the Joggler in action - with his record finish - all while jogging. I think it should be called "sproggling" not "joggling (juggling & jogging). He is after all running sub 3 hour marathons!

Check out the race day footage:
