7 weeks 5 days--Saturday Oct 17

So this morning was Race for the Cure and if you guys read my original post about it here you may have noticed how I was totally unconcerned about the slow time and lack of a PR. Well that's because of the pregnacy, but since you guys don't know about it yet, I had to avoid the issue. I was very nauseaus at the start, and vowed not to puke during the race. Luckily once I started running, the nausea subsided and the only pressing issue was the need to pee. I was a frequent pee-er to start with, so add in some hcg to the mix (that's the pregnancy hormone for those of you who didn't know) and I basically have to pee all the time. I know that's only going to get worse as the months go by. So anyway, I just took the miles easy and really enjoyed the race atmosphere. True, it was a little disappointing to log my slowest ever 5k time but hey...it's baby's first race so that's a PR for her right:) I just can't get my pace up to where it used to be. Every run feels like you ran a long run and got a bad night's sleep the day before. The legs never seem to feel light and fresh. But since it will probably be quite a while before I describe myself as light and fresh, so I better get used to it.

Also, if you noticed me posing drinking beer in my pj's after the race, never fear, I only had a small sip for the photo and then Rich glady polished off the rest. I'm not gonna lie though...I miss the booze!!

OK...your super-double-secret blog posts are cracking me up.

But seriously, congrats on being preggers and for not puking during the 5K.

I missed the booze too. I have one word for you O'Dohls (really, not bad for a non-alky beer)
