Triple Tangent Tuesday!!!

Workout:

2 miles treadmill….my legs were aching so I listened to them and moved on to cross-training.

45 minutes elliptical.  I was bored to death.  Next cross-training day will you guys please come work out with me and entertain me.

20 minutes stairclimber.

—————————————————————–

A brilliant reader (who is much better at english than I am) suggested doing Triple Tangent Tuesday and I love it….it sounds SO much better.  So here goes, three completely random/awkward/strange things about me and my life.  Feel free to do it on your blog…..it is a great way to get to know each other.

1. I am not on Facebook very often because I love blogging and twitter so much more but I always post my race times after a race on my Facebook status.  I do this because of ONE person that I am friends with on facebook.  In my 9th grade english class we went around the room talking about our life goals.  I said my goal was that I wanted to run a marathon someday.  This boy (I will not name names so that no one goes to beat him up) said, “You’re too big (I matured very early), you could never do that.”

I post my races on Facebook so that he see’s that I ran a marathon in his newsfeed.  In your face _ _ _ _ _.   I clearly don’t seek out revenge.

I do not post the pictures on facebook because then he would have another reason to make fun of me…working on that posture and my facial expressions. Don’t worry.

2.  I could eat tomatoes like an apple. I just bite right into them.  I always take Billy’s tomatoes….he is crazy sauce and doesn’t like them.

The End 29.jpg

3.  If I am wearing a hooded jacket I always wear the hood even if I am inside (unless I am at work, they get mad at me).  It must be some weird security issue that I have or maybe I am just always cold and covering my head keeps the heat stay in.

Maybe, I would be warmer if I didn’t eat so much ice cream.

Do you remember getting made fun of as a kid or have you blocked it out of your memory?

-I try to forget but being called a poo-poo head is very traumatic.  I am actually kind of grateful that boy said what he did because sometimes I am driven by people telling me I can’t do something.

What is your FAVORITE thing that has tomatoes in it?

-I love lasagna that has big thick chunky tomatoes surrounded by cheese and noodles.  Oh, I could also live off of pico de gallo.

Gotta love the hood ;)

I post my runs/races on FB for pretty much the same reason! In your face mean teenage boys!

Reply

I have a hoddie addiction, always buying them! And, I always wear the hood up after leaving the gym, even if its hot out..strange.
Get that revenge :) hahaha

Reply

I looooooooooooooooove tomatoes. I love to bake the little ones in the oven with basil and olive oil, and spread them on toast.

I was made fun of all the time as a kid for having a big nose and being uncoordinated.

Reply

The kids didn't make fun of me because I tricked them into believing I was a jeanie….true story..

Reply

I was teased mercilessly as a child. It was horrible. Mostly about my name and my looks. Kids can be so mean.

You are so cute with your hood and the tomatoes! I adore tomatoes and can't pick a favorite thing with them in it. Eating sliced heirloom tomatoes with a little salt is summertime heaven though.

I'm eating banana blueberry pancakes right now. I've spent the last hour watching my 2-yr old dance and twirl…too cute for words :) Well, there are 2 tangents for Tuesday anyway!

Reply

I just recently posted about this, but I was overweight throughout childhood and most of junior high. LOTS of people made fun of me. At 13 I lost 40+ lbs and was totally motivated to prove them wrong :D

I love a good Tomato, Mozz, Basil, Roasted Red Pepper salad w/ balsamic!!
and I love Roma Tomatoes any way I can get them!!

Reply

My fave thing that has tomatoes in it is bruschetta! Mmm :)

I would totally be warmer too if I at less ice cream/smoothies. I made protein ice cream this afternoon and proceeded to drink 2 cups of hot tea while lying in my bed under a million covers dressed in sweats! Oh what we'll suffer through for ice cream!

Reply

How about a Fried Green BLT.. probably not too healthy, but extremely tasty!

Reply

I'm going to tell you the saddest thing you'll hear tonight–I'm deathly allergic to tomatoes. It is the worst allergy ever because everything tasty has tomatoes.

Reply

Heck ya, you post away your marathon times. I'm sure he has taken a look at your blog too. Oops, messed with the wrong girl! :)

Reply

I was bullied horrifically as a teen…
and suffered low low low self esteem into my late twenties…. that was when I started to run.
And with each step, with every mile, I started to find myself again, I even began to like myself & be PROUD of who I am! Life has never been better :)

Also, I love tomatoes… especially with salt!!

Reply

I always take mike's tomatoes too, but he loves them, so he gets mad.

I can't really remember being made fun of other than by my sister when she told my I had really hair legs at age 9. :(

Reply

I heart hoodies!!! And I do like tomatoes, just not to the extent you do. I love me some chips and salsa, though!

When I was growing up, I played soccer and my nickname was always tomato face. You probably would have loved me then, ha ha! But I guess they were right, my face still gets bright red with any kind of exercise. I am learning to embrace it.

AND now i'm craving a milkshake…

Reply

OMG I can eat tomatoes like that too!!!! Sprinkle a little salt and just bite right in :)

Here's a random tangent about me…whenever I touch or even look at lettuce my nose automatically just crinkles up. I don't even know why…bc I like lettuce but for some reason I just scrunch up my nose… i am weird.

I also tripped on the plastic runner that lines the inside of a track TWICE in the same week after finishing a 400…sprained my ankle the first time then tore a ligament the 2nd time…I never lived that one down with the team…I mean, who DOES that?! Only me, I think. My coach loved to say "Bess Fall Down Go Boom" all the time after that…haha

Lastly, I'm scared of flying but really wish I liked it! It would make seeing Mike a lot easier! (And seeing YOUUUU a lot easier! haha) You rule and I know we're gunna hang out one day and I can't waaaaait yo! :)

Reply

What a jerk! I'm glad you've taken that nasty person's comments and just used them as fuel to run faster and be stronger! I got made fun of ALL the time growing up, so I understand. Sometimes when I go back home I see those people again, and I'm the same way – look at me now, meanies!

I love tomatoes too! I love the little grape ones in greek salad the best I think. I also love them in salsa – which I think should be eaten with everything! One day when I get really adventurous and want to make something myself I might make some extra tomato-ey salsa!

My tangents: I am really addicted to 5 gum. I ate a package yesterday and had to buy another one today. Right now, I am enjoying a slice of 5 gum and am about to go get an algae eater so he can help my fishes clean their tank. I had black hair for 7 years.

Reply

I didn't get made fun of too badly I don't think. Nothing traumatic other than a girl cutting my hair off in 1st gorade. :) We grow our own heirloom tomatoes. They are the best! Funny thing is we plant so many and Ryan doesn't even like them very much. I make a lot of sauces with them!

Reply

Girl you already know my triple tangent for today!:)

Slash I eat tomaters like an apple, they are so good and I can eat red peppers like apples also. So. good!

I got made fun of because of my lunch box..it was barbie and I lvoed it but one girl thought it was funny (she was a tomboy, she probably showers less than I do). I still have that lunchbox:) but of course I do not use it, that would be weird.

Reply

Hahah I always date boys that don't like tomatoes…makes me love them even more. And I always wear my hood up when I'm feeling sicky. It's so random but it makes me feel all huggy and stuff. :)

Reply

Tomatoes with eggs.. yum!

Hmm I'm always cold and I am my own worst critic.

Reply

I love that you are shoving your marathon success in your elementry school meanie's face!

Reply

i LOVE this! I wear my hood all the time too because I'm FREEZING! I think that FB can be excellent for letting stupid boys know how fab you are… Not that I'd ever do that, ahem…
I had a great time on my blog with 3 tangent Tues today, thanks for a great idea!

Reply

Oh. My. God.

I am almost convinced we are dating the same person. Mike absolutely HATES tomatoes (he makes a face like he's going to vom when I make him try one) AND he's Italian. Try to explain that one away.

Reply

Caprese Panini!! yummmmmmmm tomato, mozzarella, pesto, on rye!!!!

Reply

salsa is handsdown my favorite. Preferably smokey and spicey. Must be with non-greasy and tasty chips or maybe even veggies.

Tangents on me: I can't live without Q-tips, I love lemons and always take everyone elses from their drinks, and I used to have a drill bit in my hand

Reply

If we meet for a pre- or post-Boston meal, you can have Billy's tomatoes AND my tomatoes. I also hate raw tomatoes. I can eat them cooked in a pasta sauce or something, but won't do raw unless there are no chunks (like a thin salsa).

Reply

I hate tomatoes. but I will eat ketchup does Billy eat ketchup?

Yes I was made fun of as a kid. I am 5'11" since I am 12 yrs old. no joke. this was not fun. the tallest of all the kids boys included. and I was flat for the longest time so they called me : plywood..lovely right?

Reply

I finally copied you and did my own tangents today!!! Your tangents are great. Good job hitting that goal even though someone told you that you couldn't. I don't really remember being made fun of much. I guess I blocked it out. I'm not a big tomato fan but I do like tomato soup.

Reply

ahhh I date a tomato-hater too and it's bliss : ) I go through so many tomatoes a week it's just silly.

Reply

i love alliteration :)

i probably did get made fun of as a kid. i was very awkward. but if i was made fun of it was behind my back. so i never knew it.

Reply

I did get made fun of when I was little for my last (maiden) name because it rhymed with all sorts of fun words like tinkle and wrinkle and stinkle and twinkle. Eh, life. At least I'm married now and have a new, more normal last name : )

My favorite tomato dish is probably pizza. I reeeeaalllly like marinara sauce so I always ask for extra on the side. Oooh, or ketchup! When I eat a burger it's half sandwich half ketchup. I try to keep an equal ratio on things like that.

Tangent: I like a half frosting/half cake ratio on cupcakes. I recently ate one with some friends and all of them scraped the frosting off and I thought, "What are you doing? You're wasting the best part!" In short, nothing is "too rich" for me : )

Reply

This kid made fun of the fact I was always sneezing. I had allergies and went to school surrounded by hay fields, not my fault!

Love bruschetta!

Reply

I don't spend much time on facebook, but I generally post my races. I guess I've been in denial, but I suppose I do it for much the same reason you do. Plus I think it's good to spread the news that a mom of 3 approaching 40 has still got it!

Reply

Hmmmm ….
1) Hate tomatoes … and it bothers me because I like to eat nutritiously. I try to sneak them in my diet in ways I can't taste.
2) It fascinates me that you have a regular commenter named Mara. No one is named Mara. Trust me, I never meet them. I thought I was alone, and now I know there is another one out there somewhere.
3) My 8 yo just asked … "Mommy, can we have our ice cream now? You know I don't like to skip my ice cream, especially on biggest loser night" I kid you not. How can I say no to her? I can't. Ice cream time!

Reply

I love tomatoes.. I just had them tonight in my taco salad a few minutes ago :)

Reply

Omigosh I could eat tomatoes as apples also! In the summer they're at their prime and I swear I eat them every single day. Oh and the G-man is crazy and doesn't like them either so I ALWAYS take his! Even when he wants to try them I just grab and go :)

Reply

I love that you always wear the hood! :) too funny. I've used facebook way less now that i have my blog but I used to be crazy…great way for me to share my life iwth my friends and family.

Reply

That boy is eating his words now, huh?!! You are going to be the next marathon poster child!

I love you even more now that you posted your running face! hahahaha! love it!

Reply

Can't wait until you write about your sub-3:00 at Boston on FB! That'll show him!

Reply

I LOVE tomatoes!!!! Here we make this pico-ish thing but its not spicy. Just chopped bell pepper, onion, cilantro and tomato! We put it on sandwiches!!!!!
Three Tangents:
During the winter, I get so cold that my pulse measurer doesn't even register a pulse for me!!!!

I get insanely happy when I order a burger here and there's an extra pickle on it. We don't get pickles in grocery stores, so you can only get them McDonalds and Burger King. I've even asked for extra "picles" (which is how brazilians spell it).

When my sister and I are together, we end up making our own language. Part English, part portuguese, and part random hand gestures. No one else understands us!

I got made fun of for being smart and wearing glasses in school.

Reply

I am a huge fan of lasagna! but in the summer when my parents have a garden…they grow lots of different types of tomatoes…so a fresh tomato sandwich is my staple food during the summer!

Reply

I was always called Suzana-Banana when I was little!! :(

I love love love cheese and tomato fatayer – which are basically some arabic pie things :D

Reply

One time in 5th grade I got made fun of because my teeth were messed up. :( The girl said, we could all be models except for Ali, she'd need to get her teeth fixed. boo haha that is the only one I remember though. And then I got braces and didn't get anymore comments on my teeth AND got voted Best Smile in 8th grade and my senior year. SO THERE. ;)

Reply

you make me smile each day. I love it! I was always made fun of for my feet as a kid, okay and now. haha.
Finger toes clown feet! hehe. Love the hoodie, I do the same thing!

your facial expressions are priceless. AND the mountains in that picture of you running look as if you are running in the swiss alps with the Sound Of Music clan. I love brochette with fresh tomatoes…when they are so fresh they are sweet…yummers! I was picked on by the "neighborhood" growing up…they used to call me Joanna? SOOO random and they would sing that Joanna I love you song and I would run home crying. Still to this day I have NO idea why they sang it to me? I saw one of the "singers" the other weekend as we are still friends.
1. I love going to movies by myself. I love the movies and I will go without my husband, friends or family in a heart beat. So relaxing to me!
2. my favorite job ever was being a lifeguard (maybe I just liked sitting in the sun?)
3. I hate folding laundry and I let it pile up in stacks in my bedroom…BUT I can tell you where everything is and what is in the pile. When I do actually fold it I feel like I am accomplished SOOOO much!

Reply

I know what you mean about those tomatoes!

My boyfriend doesn't like tomatoes either. I love it when he forgets to ask for no tomatoes at restaurants…which is 80% of the time.
Mo' fo' me!

Reply

Oh I love tomatoes! I can eat them anyway!

Hmm something about me? Well, I might or might not have a sweet spot for prunes. Crazy right?

Reply

I totally remember being picked on. I think it makes me a better teacher because I am sensitive to it/how to handle it, now!! I facebook friended the guy that made fun of me too–mostly so he could see that I lost 50 pounds since high school!

My husband hates tomatoes too….its weird. He likes tomato sauce, pizza sauce, chili, salsa…just not tomatoes. So I eat his!

Reply

My hubby hates tomatoes, too!! You are right, they are crazy sauce because tomatoes rock my face ;)

Here is my three tangent tuesday post!

well, i have a facebook frenemy that i also post all of my marathon (and sometimes training stats) for specifically. its an old college friend of mr. dawn who started doing marathons around the same time i did, but always treated me like i was a "toddler" runner. like, "oh isn't she cute, that she's trying to run?" so, i heard he was trying to qualify for boston and i thought to myself, how cool would it be if i made it and he didn't? so, yeah. now i'm going to boston this year and he hasn't even qualified yet. in fact, his last marathon he ran 10 minutes slower than i did!

man…not sure that i should care that much…but it sure does feel good :)

love tomatoes. i eat a half a box of cherry tomatoes every day in my lunch. YUMMM!

Reply

When I got married I became more of an athlete then I ever was because the hubby and i worked out together. After losing a few pounds my aunt asked me if I was unhappily married and losing weight due to stress. Her daughter is now divorced and I am still giddy in love after 8 years. I welcome any PDA at holidays because of this! (I'm sure there are 3 tangents in that paragraph so I'll leave it at that.)

Tomatoes: BLT in summer, garden grown tomato, and spinach instead of lettuce.

Reply

Well, I dont know if you have watched it yet, so I'll be discreet. My husband thought he knew who was going home, but I told him absolutely not. I might respect Brad if he sent her home, but I knew he wouldn't. *shocker* I was right :P haha but yeah. Its addicting to watch and I hope he ends up with emily. She's my fav. or the funeral director chick. they are my top two picks.

tomatoes are the best thing ever discovered/created/whatever. when i was little, i DID eat them like apples. my fam found me out in the garden chomping away :D

Sorry for the long comment, but I do have a question for you: when you take your ice baths, what do you do afterwards to help you not be cold for a million years??? My hubby is into them and he talked me into it, but seriously I felt like I was cold for the rest of the week afterwards…any tips would be awesome!

Reply

Hi!! I just found your blog today and may or may not have spent 4 hours at work reading back through your old posts (oops!). You are the cutest thing ever, how could that silly boy say such mean words?! Anyways, I'm a sort-of-runner (only 1 very slow marathon, but hoping for another soon) and a spin instructor. All of this to say, I am now stalking your blog like crazy! Wahoo!! Ok, have a lovely evening :). Hugs from Texas!

p.s. Utah is my most favorite place ever. the hubs and I are headed to Deer Valley in a week and a half for some serious ski action. Yay!!

Reply

wow what a coinky dink! i was gonna post on my blog today a picture of me eatnig a whole tomatoe raw like an apple. it bothers my friends so much when I do that and i thought i was all alone in this world. thanks for being weird!

Reply

i eat tomatoes all the time just cut it up with diced cucumber, a bit of olive oil and pepper. freak'n deliciousness!! You should try it!

and i was told the same thing when i was in hs on the cross country team by a sprinter/track member. and then i became team captain of both my senior year; they did not. suckahhhhhhhh.

Reply

I like tomatoey foods like sauces, but I'm not a fan of them alone. Hah, I'm not on facebook that much too because blogs are MORE fun and take up most of my time.
Tangent: I just saw Tangled, and it was so cute! I loved it!

Reply

I used to hate tomatoes, but now I love them. And I love almost everything that tomatoes make – salsa, marinara sauce, ketchup…mmmm. Just ate some sweet potato fries with ketchup tonight. Now thinking about some chocolate. Hope you got to watch The Bachelor!

Reply

I'm with the Bill-ster. I can't do tomatoes. The taste of them makes me die a little inside. Don't hate me!

Reply

mmm lasagna! sounds so good right now! i think anything with cheese sounds delicious!

Reply

I can honestly say that I didn't get made fun of or teased in school. I really don't remember bullying being an issue at all like it seems to be today.

I'm a tomato fiend too, and LUCKY ME I get Dewayne's tomatoes too cuz he doesn't like them either. I'm also guilty of eating them like an apple… tomato in one hand, salt shaker in the other. And I put salsa on ANYTHING! D was just looking at me like I'd grown another head a few nights ago when I put salsa on cornbread. YUM.

Reply

no tomatoes for me, I will send you mine from now on :)

Reply

I posted 30 random tangents on my blog today… didn't realize it was a tuesday, but glad that it is!!

Thirty Tangent Tuesday! oh wait, thirty sounds better with Thursday…

Reply

I love tomatoes, but I used to hate them when I was younger! I didn't like them until I lived with a host family and I was too scared to tell them I didn't like them. I forced myself to eat them every time they were served and soon enough I was hooked!

I did my triple tangent too!

Wow the scenery behind you in the picture where you are running is gorgeous! The mountains are so pretty :)

hahah the revenge tangent was my favorite. killed me.

I don't really remember being bullied. I remember getting odd comments here or there, but I don't really remember the specifics. I've always been able to shrug comments on because I've always had ridiculously high self worth, even when I had crappy self esteem. I guess I'm just lucky like that.

favorite thing with tomatos? two answers: tuna melt with tomatos, and caprese salad. hunks of mozzarella and tomato with olive oil on it? WHAT'S BETTER THAN THAT?

hmmm three tangents:
1. Baked Cheetos are my new favorite snack. it's ridiculous how awesome they are.
2. my all time favorite cereal is Cinnamon Toast Crunch but I don't get it very often. I try not to allow myself to eat it more than like once every few months, but it's the greatest cereal that ever existed.
3. I'm terrified of three things in life: jellyfish, cockroaches, and lice. I'm a future teacher so I really need to get over my fear of lice, but they scare the crap out of me. they're just SO gross.

Reply

I'm always putting up my hood and getting made fun of for it– it's just toooo comfy!
I'm glad you showed _ _ _ _ _ that you are killing the pavement with your funny photos while running a marathon! It takes quite the talent to do both at once!

Reply

I have to side with Billy on this one, I do not enjoy tomatoes either. I'm nice though and give them to people who do like them.

I don't think I really remember much about being teased as a kid. Becides in 9th grade ceramics class, my table mates were always teasing me in a jokingly way, but I knew that they were half serious. Why on earth did I ever want to take ceramics though? I was HORRIBLE at it

Reply

Ben always steals my tomatoes even though I like them! He has convinced himself I don't like them so he can thief them away :(

Reply

That is too funny that you post times on facebook for that reason. I actually started getting really into running after my boyfriend of a year in high school broke up with me for someone else. He was a super popular football jock, and I didn't want people to think of me as his ex- gf, and/or that I was upset/hurt over his rejection. So I got super ticked off and ran my BUTT off to get ready for track season and make something of myself. It helped me get over the break up, and also improved my 800 time by a ton. It was the best motivation I have ever had!

Reply

My husband doesn't like tomatoes either. But tomato sauce, he loves it. Go figure.

Reply

I'm glad you blogged about that high school terd of a boy, thereby giving me the opportunity to explain to you what happened. Sometimes it's hard to realize what's going on when you're in the situation, but it's perfectly obvious to me that he had massive crush on you. He might as well have pulled your hair or put a bug in your lunchbox. (He's also probably fat now.)

Reply

I can't eat them like apples, but slice em up, drizzle some evoo and salt& pepper. Oh yes.

Reply

I lose all feeling in my fingers when it's cold outside, fl cold that is, and this am it took me approximately 2 minutes to unlock my front door. I was struggling and trying not to wake up my roommate at the same time! I also had a cough attack while being fit for running shoes tonight…embarrassing.

Reply

I love eating tomatoes like apples! Sometimes people make fun of it but that is ok. Tomatoes are awesome.

Reply

I'm with Billy, and don't really care for tomatoes! Lol. I love pizza and spaghetti, though. I think it's just the texture.. Haha.

Reply

ahahhaahh you sure showed him!!!
my fav thing with tomatoes… tomato sauce? i LOVE cherry tomatoes– not only are they tasty but they explode in your mouth and it kind of feels good..

Reply

HA love your tangents you hilarious girl!Tomatoes are awesome!! Best on pizza obviously:)

TANGENT TIME:
1. Overheard the weights guys at the gym say "look, it's Crazy Runner Girl again!". Apparently me and you *almost* share a name! :P

2. I ate a whole head of broccoli yesterday. Addiction.

3. Last week I walked past a boy, who must've been about 9, and we were wearing the same hoodie. I'm not quite sure who was more embarrassed…

Reply

I was always made fun of as a kid, mostly for being out of shape and unfit. Oh, and fugly. Anyway, I totally understand your FB vengeance because I would do the same thing! I actually had a very similar comment made to me by the girls on the x-country team.

Roasted tomatoes=heaven, particularly with pasta.

Reply

Ahhh- I do that with tomoatos too!!! love 'em :)

Reply

I love that! Facebook revenge!

Tangents…Hmmm…

1. I was made fun of as a kid. Chubby with thick glasses – what more could a mean kid ask for? Both of those are gone now!

2. I have this weird thing about my feet after I take a shower. I cant walk around the house without slippers on. It's like my feet cant touch the ground. I guess I like to keep that clean feeling on my feet. Weird I know.

3.I eat my hubby's tomatoes too! He hates them unless their in a sauce – crazysauce!!

Have a great day!!

I would rather eat a bowl full of cherry or grape tomatoes than any fruit!

I love that your workout includes a little bit of everything… it's a good reminded for me to break it up a little and try new things at the gym… boring as the elliptical can be :-)

I just can't get over how we're the same person. I loooove tomatoes and the Husband hates them. I always take his from him!

LOL.. You matured early….

My tangents:

-When I'm watching TV I always repeat funny lines out loud. It makes me mad at myself when I do it, but it's a knee-jerk reaction.

-I do accents…Rusian, New York, Chicago, Michigan…My husband and I decided that one night we would go to a restaurant and just speak in an accent all night long. Fun times.

-My old dream job was to be a Criminal Profiler for the FBI. I was in the middle of enlisting in the Air Force (I got my physical and took my ADSVAB test and was just waiting for my date to go to Basic), but my recruiter lost ALL of my paperwork. Not sure how that happens. So, I didn't join, and now I work in TV. Weird. Anyway, my original plan was to join the Air Force Military Police, go to school on the Government dime and head to Quantico, VA to join the FBI. Guess what…Now that's my brother's dream and he'll probably accomplish it since he's a highly decorated combat veteran.

that tomato looks delicious, i want to eat it.

i was the nerdy kid with no friends until high school at least. i'm still the nerdy kid, i fall down. a lot. oh man.

my revenge was a fabulous boob job. expensive revenge.

First I thought you were that girl in the beach pic and I was like 'how's that related?' But then I noticed that the blue surf board had a hood on and went AWW.

Also, thank you for an AMAZING blog. :-) you are such an inspiration to me and my running and have really taught that really REALLY great runners don't have to have strict diets and that life's so good.

Your happiness is contagious and I hope you'll keep doing this blog for a long time to come!<3

Greetings from Finland to you and Billy!

Talking about doing something just because someone told you couldn't. When I was pregnant with my second I went into a running store for a fuel belt. I asked the guy who worked there which size I should get because I'm pregnant. He told me I probably wouldn't be able to run that much longer while i was pregnant so not to worry about getting the bigger size. That totally lit a fire under me. I wanted to run up until I delivered just to prove that guy wrong. Sadly, I hurt my hip about half way through the pregnancy and had to stop running.

Men, what does he know about running while pregnant?!

In college I used to put my hood up over my head to help me concentrate in class!!
