Baby Tobin runs a Half Marathon!

I recently ran my 10th half marathon: the St. Louis Rock and Roll Half Marathon on October 21st.  This was monumental for me in being my 10th, but I was also 18 weeks pregnant.  When I signed up in April, I thought I might be fortunate enough to be pregnant, but I wasn't sure because we had no idea how long it would take us to get pregnant.  Well, not long it turns out =)

The training went well.  I hit all my long runs with decent times, nothing my fastest and nothing slow.  I averaged about 9 min/miles during my longer training runs.  I ran this race with my friend Jaidra (it was her 3rd Half) and my brother who also ran his 3rd Half.  

Time Comparison:

10/23/2011 – St. Louis Rock and Roll Half Marathon – 2:02.59 – 9:23 pace  - #7 Half

10/21/12 – St. Louis Rock and Roll Half Marathon -  2:03.29 - #10 Half

I only ran 30 seconds slower this year!  Amazing what this pregnancy has allowed me to do!
