Hope, in the form of elites.

This article, Does Having a Baby Make You Faster?, popped into my news feed today. The timing is excellent as I stare down the barrel at another labour and delivery while feeling grossly undertrained for the “event.” That’s despite knowing that it’s not something I can train for, and that women have been doing it, in far worse circumstances than I, for thousands of years. I’m still feeling nervous and this article helped, reminding me that the female body is strong and capable of many things.

It also gives me hope for a smooth return to running in a few weeks. I’m no elite but I’ll gladly take any speed boosts or physiological changes that benefit me! Fingers crossed…


These were made for running, and that's just what they'll do!

Them feet there, they are ready to run! And I still have ankles, whoot!
