Olympic Athletes Need to Lose the Baby Weight, Too

2008 ING NYC Marathon NYC, NY      November 2, 2008 Photo: GiancTurns out that it’s hard to run away from the baby weight. I chatted with Kara Goucher yesterday, Olympic distance runner and new mom to 6-month-old Colt, who’s in town to compete in this Sunday’s New York City Half-Marathon. Goucher said that despite running 120 miles a week (nope, not a typo!) she still had had some trouble dropping her post-baby pounds—something that should make us non-Gold Medalists feel a little better about having to work our butts off, too, to shed the baby weight. If you’re looking to get your pre-pregnancy body back, you might like these exercise and eat-right tips. And be sure to check out the race and cheer Kara on if you’re in New York City this weekend!
