A HUUUUUGGGGGGGGEEEEE PR!

Huge being ME, of course.

So I ran the Reindeer Run 5K FASTER today than I ran the Turkey Dash 5K 10 days ago! WOOT! Not sure how I pulled that off, as I thought I'd definitely need to do LOTS of walking. I think yoga is really helping with my back and strength, though! That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

It was so fun to be at a race again--I wish there were a few more but the next local 5K isn't until the Chili Bowl which I'm pretty sure is, like, the week before I'm due. And going into labor on the course might not be the best idea.

Pretty darn proud of myself for running through 30 weeks. I'm going to keep on keepin' on here until it doesn't feel good and isn't fun anymore, and then I'll stick with walking, yoga, and swimming. Although I must admit, my choice of suit to replace my extremely low and borderline indecent 2 piece is...um...interesting. I'm too cheap to get an expensive maternity suit, so I ordered a cheap one piece in the biggest size I could find for $25 on clearance at Dick's. The only trouble is that they didn't have black. So I got my favorite color, red.

And now, folks, I look like the most horribly miscast actress on Baywatch EVER.

Basically, I look like this. EXCEPT NOT AT ALL.

But whatever. 2 more months, right? I can look ridiculous for 2 more months. I'm pretty sure I look ridiculous often, anyway, so no big whoop.

Here's a few pics from this morning...


All the crew at the Original House of Pancakes afterwards! ESpeed not only PRd today, but WON THE RACE! Yay! And, technically, there are 13 people in this picture... :)

There were actually 5 of us running who were pregnant! I am the farthest along, but JenC's not too far behind me!

Me and JenC

Hooray for running buddies, and especially hooray for my preggers running buddies who paced me to a blazing fast PR today! :) You guys rock!

Awesome job out there today! And I am going to try your pumpkin oatmeal recipe, yum and check out that book. Another one I like is the 12 week triathlete b/c it has a really good weights workout in it that is quick and hits all the muscles.

Good for you for still running! I'm 27 weeks, and my next goal is to make it to 30. Thanks for being motivating, you have a great blog!

JenC said...

I'll keep running with you as long as you'd like! It has been awesome to spend so much time with you lately and you have the best taste in breakfast restaurants! See you Monday!

I'm amazed you have a running top like that that fits pregnant!? Is it a maternity running fleece? I was just thinking that I'm glad I live where it stays warm so I don't need a bunch of winter maternity clothes, which are likely even more expensive than summer maternity clothes!
So good job on the PR!

Congrats on the PR! And I LOVE the way that you (and your other preggo running partners) are still running! Nothing drives me crazier then women who don't think they can stay healty while they are expecting. Congrats again!

Jennifer P said...

You look amazing and I'm so happy that you're able to keep running. And as long as Baby doesn't look like the Hoff I think you're safe.

I have given up looking like a normal person.
