New Goal!

Ok, so after the last post I went online and found the perfect next race! It's a 4 miler, in 3 weeks. Looks like a big race (i.e. more slow people). Clara and I got out and ran this morning, just 3 miles or so, but enough to remind me that running still feels pretty good and I can't give it up out of just plain laziness. It's really good to have people to run with, especially now. We have our little "team" now, and we'll keep up our Sunday runs together at least a little longer. Here's us after last weekend's race:Here are some 28 week belly pictures too...right before going to the gym. I decided not to go all baggy but to start to embrace the bump! With only 12 weeks (or hopefully 11) to go, I'm starting not to mind it. Almost entirely because when people ask how far along I am and I answer 6 1/2 months, I get pretty positive feedback! So for a pregnant lady I feel I look good...it's all about comparing apples to apples!

You have a great attitude and you are doing great! I hope that I will embrace it soon too. For 6 1/2 months you look great! I feel too large for only being 4 1/2 in. It is wonderful to have people to run with. Your comment about the little renter made me laugh. Great goal for the 4 miler - this weekend in CT has been nasty!!

I totally embraced the bump...wore my regular dresses and shirts(while they still fit comfortably) to work just to show off the bump. One of my friends once said that she never really felt like she appreciated having the bump and ended up having an emergency c-section at 34 weeks and really wished that she had those last 6 weeks to really embrace being pregnant. So, ever since she told me that, I have tried to embrace looking maternal. It is a beautiful, special time!
