11:30 AM: 3-Mile Run – COMPLETED
You’ll just have to wait a few more months… We think it’s a boy, but what do I know?!? I thought Lili was a boy until the day she was born. All those wives tales are a bunch of bull.
So why do we think boy? Just the features — the femur looked huge and the arms? They looked muscular. And I kid you not, the baby was doing crunches. No really… already an athlete.
Everything looks good and baby appears to be healthy. We’re moving right along and we’re half way there (are you all singing the Bon Jovi song now?).
Onto non-baby news, the Brooklyn Half is in 3-days. Eek. Coach Vinny is going to pick up my packet and I’m not sure if I’ll be riding in with him (at freaking 4:30 in the AM) or if I’ll be riding with Kristina. I’ll have to firm things up by Friday. Kristina and I were supposed to run today but she forgot she had a potential new client, so I decided to run solo. I haven’t ran alone (outside) in months… Pedro doesn’t allow me to run alone since I’m pregnant. I get it though. Not only can something happen but pregnant women are target for crime. So he freaks out about that stuff. The route I run though pretty busy — filled with restaurants, shops, a school, etc. In fact, 3 delivery guys know me on a regular and the local fed-ex guy. Every time we get a food or fed-ex delivery, they always say, “Have a great run today!”. HA.
Some tips (pregnant or not pregnant): Always be alert, give eye-contact (you want people to know that you’re confident), don’t run too fast that you’re out of breath just in case you do need to sprint and run with some basic necessities:
Road ID, license, water bottle, pepper-spray and cell phone!!!! (Pre-pregnancy, I never ran with water if I was doing 3-5 miles, but now, I always STAY HYDRATED!!!)
What do you always carry when you’re out for a run?!?
