I woke up this morning REALLY wanting to run outside. It was already super warm out which I was fine with but I wasn’t sure about my bladder cooperating with me (TMI?), let’s just say I had one of my most embarrassing moments on a run outside last week. I set up all of my treadmill stuff and pushed start but within 20 seconds I felt like my bladder was going to be friends with me today and treat me nicely so I took my run outside.
I ended up doing 8 miles at a 9:46 pace and the highlight of my run was when I ran by two college age girls and they started clapping for me. My head quadrupled in size. The second highlight was that I only had to stop at 2 of the 16 stoplights along the way. Yes, I do count those sorts of things.
I realized that all of this pregnant running is going to really give me a great advantage when I am back to racing again because it is like I have been training with a weight vest, maybe that will get me a sub-2 hour marathon too;) When I pay attention to my form as I am running now I realize that I am totally leaning forward, gravity is in fact a real thing.
I had to take a picture of this bird on the telephone wire along the way because this is the same bird (or at least exactly where the bird sits) that dive attacks Billy every time he runs by. I had to prove to Billy that the bird actually likes most people and he is the only one that he dive bombs.
Today’s choice of music was the Pandora Beyonce station and a few Janet Jackson songs came on and I realized that I must download them asap because they were so much fun to run to.
You don’t finish a run and only think about a ginormous hamburger too? You are the crazy one.
Now I am just sitting on the couch with my favorite frozen pb cookie in an old race shirt debating a shower.
Billy and I are talking about our different moving options and we are now thinking about getting a POD. If any of you have used one before to move will you PLEASE tell me the pros and cons… it would be greatly appreciated. It says on the website that for a one bedroom apartment you would just need one pod…is that true?
Any embarrassing running stories to share with me pretty please?!?
Do you wear sunglasses when you run?
-I feel like I HAVE to.
Favorite race shirt to wear around the house?
