When did July happen and where'd June go? This year is going by SO fast! It's crazy. Before you know it, it'll be December.
So, to start off this month on the right foot I got up this morning and went on a 4 mile run around the lake. You know how it takes me 2 miles before I warm up usually, well now that I'm prego it takes me 3 miles. My first 3 miles were around a 13 min pace and my last mile was in the 11 min range. The thing that sucks right now is that I'm in that stage of pregnancy where people look at you and think, "Hummm...is she pregnant or is she just gaining a lot of weight?" The silly thing is every time I pass someone while running I feel the need to explain myself in my head, "Yeah, I know...I'm going insanely slow and I look over weight, but I'm pregnant. I'm aloud to be slow." The silly thing is I've only gained about 3 pounds in the past 2 months which isn't bad considering I haven't been running.
(See...you can totally see my "Is she overweight or is she pregnant" pudge.)I'm proud of my run. Even though my thighs burned and my legs felt dead for the first 3 miles, I'm glad I got out there and did it. I'm glad that I did it without stopping and I'm glad that I was able to do it. :)
