I got up bright and early for the race this morning. 8am start time but I like to have a couple hours to get situated. like eating homemade peanut butter cups and CLICK.
I've been wearing my compression shorts under everything to keep my baby bump supported. I tried to wear a skirt over the top but it just ended up riding up.
And WOW I didn't realize my bump was so noticeable. I think it's grown since last week.
Me before leaving the house!
Bathroom break...TOTALLY necessary, especially for a pregnant woman. I had to pee from mile 1 on just for the record.
And I thought some other races were bad.
LOOK AT THIS START SIGN!!!
Ugh, I guess that's what I get for paying $25 dollars
AANNNNND we're off!!!!!
These were mostly the 5K people running all fast. After about 1 mile it began a slow, steady uphill climb that lasted the rest of the 6 miles.
I WAS NOT HAPPY!!! and I ran very slow! BOO!!!!
1 hour 12 minutes 6.40 Miles (apparently they can't keep their distance straight but my Garmin can)
I just have to keep reminding myself that I'm 14 weeks pregnant but somehow I don't care,
I want to run fast!
So this race was 90% uphill and 25 MPH winds. I had a little nit of a hard time but to be honest I think it's my weight. I must have gained 10 pounds by now, I stopped weighing myself because I was getting upset.
I KNOW, I KNOW. I AM PREGNANT!!!!!! I have been told a million times but that is not excuse to get as big as a house.
Everyone tells me, just enjoy it, well guess what???? it's my third pregnancy, it's NOT enjoyable to be HUGE and OBESE!!!!!
I might start to restrict some sweets. I am starting to feel really heavy, lethargic and just not healthy.
