I was training for a half marathon before my pregnancy and I've decided to continue and run in the race (which is next Sunday). I'm 7 weeks along so the only thing affecting my training has been fatigue. It actually helps my energy levels to get up and do an early morning run before work, as long as I eat a huge breakfast to keep nausea at bay. I haven't had my first doctor's appt yet to confirm this is OK, but I have an OB-GYN friend who knows my health and activity level and she said I'd be fine if I reduced my speed and didn't overdo it. After the race I plan to keep running but with much shorter distances, 2-4 miles every other day.

Lurking from 2nd tri..
Glad to hear you ladies are staying active!
I was in a dance class before I got pregnant and continued thru it. Just before our final show, I reached the 20week mark and it actually helped me get thru the 1st tri pleasantly!...
With my first I stayed active and my labor was easy peasy.. hoping for the same great results! H&H 9months!
