Pig In Training

Tom ran The Flying Pig half-marathon last year so this year we are training as a family; Tom is running the half, the boys are logging their miles and will run the last mile of a marathon for the kids race and I will be walking the 5K. We joined a Sports Center and have been going as a family of the evenings to exercise. The boys are doing really well, they are enjoying exercising on the equipment and walking on the track. This is proving to be more than just training for a race, it is bringing our family together in a whole new way, we are working together and supporting one another to reach a common goal.

That sounds so nice that you can all work together to do what you want to do. Good luck to you.

Hi, thank you for visiting my blog. At the moment I do not know what I am having, hopefully we will find out at my next scan, at 20 weeks, which I will have on March 10th. I think it is a girl....I am not sure why I think that though.

I thought my first was a boy (it was) and my second was a boy (she was a girl) so I am not so good at the whole guessing game.

Anyway, hope to chat with you again soon. Best wishes.

How fun! I just loved the Flying Pig when I lived in Cincy...of course I never ran in it, but I liked the idea of running in it! Ha!

Hope things are good with you! Have a great weekend! :)
