Natalie Coughlin's Pre-Wedding Run

Natalie Coughlin's Pre-Wedding Run

She may have made her athletic mark in the pool, but Olympic medalist Natalie Coughlin also loves to run. She began running in college as part of her aerobic conditioning regimen. Once she graduated from UC Berkeley, she continued to run to help calm her energetic pooch — a border terrier. But running doesn't just calm her dog; it works for her, too.


When Runner's World asked Natalie if she was going to run on her upcoming wedding day, she replied:

"Yes. I've spent a lot of time planning my run the morning of my wedding. I know I'll need to work off my nerves. The problem is finding a route that won't let my fiancé see me."

Nice to see that this athlete included planning for exercise along with all the other wedding planning. Working out is a great way to calm pre-wedding nerves. If you can't get out to do cardio, carve out 20 minutes to do some calming yoga moves before getting ready.

Good for Natalie! I personally couldn't do it, because I can't run for more than a few minutes without getting out of breath. Walking suits me just fine :)
