Vermont Maternity: Running For Two!

Similar to the woman in my Zumba class who danced well into her 7th or 8th month of pregnancy, Kate puts me to shame. She was an avid runner before finding out she was expecting and barely broke stride after the doctor gave the o.k. to continue running through her pregnancy. ๐Ÿ™‚ Perhaps her pace is a little slower than before, but in the past 8+ months she has completed several races and ran more miles in a single week than I might run in a year. ๐Ÿ™‚ She just amazes me! And looks fabulous. There is definitely much to be said for keeping active at whatever level you can during pregnancy.

Now her due date is closing in and we are ALL anticipating the arrival of their sweet baby girl. No doubt she will be back out on the trails as soon as she can with baby in tow! ๐Ÿ™‚ Check back later this week for other images from Kateโ€™s belly session.

    Kate and Pat are about to enter the marathon of their lives. I can’t wait to meet Baby McKenna. Thank you, Kathleen, for capturing some beautiful “before” pictures.

    Thank you for capturing this time in our lives, Kaht! I can’t wait to see the other photos. McKenna is due to make her arrival tomorrow, but as with all babies, you just have to be patient and wait and see. I had to give up running a couple of weeks ago because it was just too hard with this belly…..these photos are going to be good motivation to get back out there after she’s born, after all, if I could run into my 9th month, surely I can run afterward! ๐Ÿ™‚ReplyCancel

    Although I don’t know Kate that well, and I’ve never had the pleasure to meet Pat, they’re part of our hugely loving family now! And I sure as heck am proud of her! McKenna, you’ve got one heck of a mommy and daddy, and you’ve got one really big family waiting to meet you!
