Pregancy and Running: Always Be Cautious

Gretchen Lynch ran the 2010 Marine Corps Marathon 8 weeks pregnant and reported having a great day. Unfortunately, Gretchen had a health scare which has benched from training for a while.  Not long after the marathon, I interviewed Gretchen and even posted the story on my blog, but days later I took it down. Gretchen was bleeding heavily and was scared about having a miscarriage. I too was terrified for her – but recently I got good news.

Read Gretchen’s story on Runners Illustrated entitled, Training Pregnant: Precautions, Prevention, and Marathons.

  1. I’m running again! Did my first run outdoors — 3 miles — today in the rain. The blood clot is gone, as confirmed by ultrasound, and I have been given the green light by my OB practice. Thank you for the article, and wanted to keep updating you with good news!

  2. This scares me. I am terrified of miscarrying, and it seems like everyone I know is saying “DONT DO IT!” because they are sure running will cause a miscarriage.
