Let me start by saying that when it came to racing, I was somewhat of a slacker in 2018. Looking back at my running log, I only count 6 races I ran this year:
- Sabre Run 5k (done at 38 weeks pregnant)
- Cleveland Marathon 5k (done at 39 weeks pregnant)
- Cleveland Marathon 10k (done 4 days before LM was born)
- Edgewater Sunset 5k
- Nature Center 5k (done with a stroller)
- Cleveland Turkey Trot
Do I have a reason? Well, yes, I suppose this little lady being born in May may have affected my running and racing:
So when I saw the topic for this week’s Tuesdays on the Run linkup was 2018 race bling, I realized I only had 4 medals to share.
And my favorite bling of the year? Definitely the medals from the Cleveland Marathon Challenge Series. Not just because of the fact that you get 3 medals for doing 2 races, but because I feel so proud of the fact that I was able to still run (err walk and hobble) the 2 races just 4 days before my due date. It was hard at the time, but I’ll always be proud of that accomplishment.
I’m not quite back in pre-baby running shape, so who knows what 2019 will hold for me.
Did you get any good race bling this year? Do you have any excuses for not racing as much?

I didn’t run at all when my boys were babies, so kudos to you for “only” running 6 races! Your baby is so happy–what a wonderful year for you!
Thank you! It’s good to know that I can get back into running and fitness after babies 🙂 you are always an inspiration
You’ve had an amazing year! Ha look at the smile on that little lady! So cute.
You are just amazing! A 5k and a 10k right before you had a baby??? Your very best bling of the year is in the first picture. How adorable!
Aww thanks!! Good point 😁
I agree that the race bling from Cleveland was pretty cool! I still can’t believe you can both of those races just a week before giving birth!
I’d stay you had quite the stellar year! You got the best awards of all precious kiddos 🙂
That is quite the accomplishment to be proud of!
Those are some pretty cool medals from the Cleveland races!
