I got this idea when GQ Magazine publishedย a similar article titled “Who Tweeted It? Donald Trump or Random Teen?”ย It was hilarious and started me thinking about how pregnancy and running have so much in common, except I was not able to do one (run) while I was the other (pregnant).

I decided you all needed to know about this phenomenon in the funniest possible way. Here are my choices for bestย running and pregnancy tweets – you decide which is which…

 

Was this tweeted just after running a marathon or anytime during pregnancy?

I ATE 5 DONUTS TODAY AND I AM MASSIVELY REGRETTING IT. I SHOULD HAVE JUST HAD 4.

 

Many moms will tell you that everything loosens up after a pregnancy. Everything. Runners will tell you this happens on almost every run…

THAT AWKWARD MOMENT WHEN YOU’RE NEAR A FRIENDS HOUSE AND WANT TO TEXT THEM “HEY CAN I POOP IN YOUR BATHROOM REAL QUICK?”

 

If you’re constantly in marathon training mode, you get used to carbs. When you’re pregnant you don’t want anyone’s opinion on anything and especially your food choices…

IT WAS SUGGESTED I CUT CARBS TO MAINTAIN A HEALTHIER WEIGHT. FRANKLY I’D RATHER CUT THE PERSON WHO SUGGESTED IT.

 

Some people train so their marathon finish coincides with Easter or Halloween for this very reason. I guess the same could be planned out for pregnancy…

IT’S A PERFECT SITUATION AT EASTER, BRING ON ALL THE CHOCOLATE, SEXY CHOCOLATE!

 

My “getting out of bed roll” both during the last month of my pregnancy and the morning after the NYC marathon were equally unattractive…

CAN’T SIT UP IN BED TO GET UP. NOW HAVE TO DO A RATHER ATTRACTIVE ROLL OFF THE SIDE.

 

This is why I always just go to the salon pretty much after every major race. While pregnant I think I forgot I had toes…

NOW IF SOMEONE WOULD PLEASE HELP ME WITH MY PEDICURE, I CAN’T REACH MY TOES!

 

 

Think you did well? Here are the real tweets…
