I accidentally laid in bed for a long time this morning and didn’t make it outside until it was a little bit hotter but I still had a great run.
This whole running at sea level thing is incredible and I feel like I don’t even have to breathe because my lungs just absorb all of the oxygen. I did 8 miles this morning at a 9:20 average pace. I felt like listening to really slow music (i.e. Sarah Mclachlan, Regina Spector, Coldplay) which I loved because it helped me feel so relaxed.
I get quite a few stares when I am running here in Cali compared to when I am running in Utah. I don’t know why… I mean it isn’t like Utahans are known for having a million children or anything and so it is normal to see pregnant women everywhere, I still haven’t seen one other pregnant person while I have been here. Also, when I am running at the lake there are a lot of older people walking around that probably still think running is bad for you if you are pregnant and so they definitely stare.
I decided that I will be going down to the t-shirt store today to have one made up with this printed on the front and back:
I will also be adding onto the running shirt that I will be making, “Yes, I know that my belly button is sticking out an inch from my stomach.”
The lake was surrounded with blankets today because everyone is claiming their spots for the firework show tomorrow.
We will be going to a different lake to watch Fireworks tomorrow night. In the morning we will be doing our annual 5k in my in-laws community followed by a pancake breakfast. My ideal day.
You know how it is the best thing in the world to have hard boiled eggs in your fridge waiting for you to eat them? Well, I have something even better going on at my in-laws house…
PRE-SHELLED hard boiled eggs. Taking off the shell of an egg is on my annoying things list that we have to do but my MIL spoils us rotten and does it for us. Too bad Billy has to go back to school next Monday because I think I am staying here forever.
I will miss you Billy but I can’t part ways with your parent’s refrigerator. Breakfast of champions:
There was some strawberry greek yogurt under all of the fruit in the bowl and of course I had an egg and toast that tasted like pie because of the blackberry jam I put on.
What are your 4th of July plans? Are you running any races in the morning?
Are you a running waver? Do you wave to other runner’s when you go buy them?
Do you like hard boiled eggs?
What was your run today? Have you ever felt like people were staring at you while you were running?
