Training for Baby: Running club in Raleigh

Posted February 15, 2011

WRAL’s Kelcey Carlson alerted me to this and it sounds great! Kelcey, who is pregnant with her second child, is an avid runner.

Raleigh Running Outfitters is launching a women’s training group at its Raleigh location at 749 Six Forks Rd. The group will start meeting twice a week in early March.

There will be a meet-and-greet and open house for interested participants at 5 p.m., Feb. 25. Click here for more on Raleigh Running Outfitters.

Any runners in the house?

I have never been much of a runner. I always came in last during races in P.E. class. In fact, I was often picked last for most things in P.E. – except for badminton. I rocked that birdy.

It is funny that it took more than a decade for me to get athletic.

Any other late bloomers to the gym?

    Did you know that RightTime KiDS offers discounted $5/hour childcare to training groups? You just need to let them know about your group, and when your scheduled runs are to get the discount. There are six locations in the Triangle and kids 18 months through 12 years old are welcome to play and socialize while parents train.

    I just don't see how you can run when you're pregnant. It's bad enough to have bouncy boobs but to have that baby bobbing up and down - makes me ache just thinking about it.

    Fleet Feet also has a running club for moms that meets at their store in the Ridgewood shopping center in Raleigh. I think the program is called Fit Mamas and is for all levels of running/walking moms. And it's free!
