Get ready, this week’s list is full of both silly (see #1) and serious (scroll down to the bottom!) blog posts and tweets. Have at it people:
- If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to run while a child is growing inside you, give Lauren Fleshman’s recent post a read. Thankfully, she debunks my fear that my belly will, in her terms, “jiggle around like an enormous unbound third boob” while running. (Whew.) Go mother runners!
The belly doesn’t jiggle like an unbound 3rd boob, and other pregnancy observations: asklaurenfleshman.com/journal/2013/0…

- New to my reader is Gina DiCello, whose passionate posts about qualifying for Boston and then running Boston made me tear up and get chills. Follow her at @GinaDiCello and walktothemailbox.com. (Thanks to @enthusiasticrun for posting!)
- “10 Tips for Supporting A Runner During a Marathon” via @
runwiki (shared by @nycrunningmama!). This one’s for my Dad, who’s coming to watch me race Boston (!!!AHH!!!) and who I know will read this post. Take notes Daddy!
