My year off from running has been great and a lot has happened. Other than still living in SF and being married to MFR, everything has changed. I have a new job, which I love, that requires a lot of travel. I've traveled 120 days this year to at least 10 different states. When I am home, I work from our apartment. I've played a lot of golf and became a ClassPass addict which has replaced my running addiction. My weeks are filled with class on class on class. My favorites include Barre (method, pure, pop...you name it), Barry's Bootcamp, Yoga and Spin but I mix it up with Boxing, Rowing etc... the possibilities are endless.
I've only done 3 races this year, all of them were much more for the social aspect then the running aspect. SF RNR Half in March, The Bend Beer Chase in June and of course, Hood To Coast in August. Finally, I am 5.5 months pregnant with a MFR Jr. who will be making his debut in February 2016. So there's that. No biggie.

I am trying to have as healthy of a pregnancy as possible. I've felt great and kept active - see ClassPass obsession - but I need a little more motivation to keep it going for the next 4 months. Enter running blogs!
Besides CP, I've started wearing my Fitbit daily and tracking my calorie/water intake so this forum is as good as any to keep me accountable. Finally, I got onto the Oiselle Volee Team in July and although I don't fit into this adorable singlet at the moment, I look forward to many races in 2016 wearing this bad boy.
