I miscarried August 27th. I was devastated. I took up running 3 days after my D&C. I didn't do it for physical reasons but more for my emotional and mental state. The first few times I ran I was sobbing about my miscarriage. It was nice to release everything that I was holding in. Anyhow. I only trained a total of 30 miles.. meaning I ran a total of 30 miles. I never ran more than 7.5 miles and today I ran my first half marathon in 2hrs and 2minutes. I ran 9:30 minute miles. I was estatic I ran it with my sister and her goal was to get under 2hrs and she did! I was so amazed that with little to no training I ran it that fast. I really am so proud of myself for overcoming something I ddint think I would. Yay :)
