Olympian Marla Runyan has shifted her focus from marathons to motherhood.

The legally blind runner discovered she was pregnant in January. Since then, she and her husband, coach Matt Lonergan, have been preparing for the arrival of their daughter, due Aug. 26.

"I'm 16 weeks along now, and thoughts of the track and marathon, while still ever present, have been temporarily replaced with home remodeling projects and 'baby stuff,' " she said on her Web site. "I guess this is when life truly gains perspective."
