35 Weeks Pregnant

Path at Wilson College
Monday I ran in a steady, soaking rain. I had to borrow my husband's waterproof pullover. It did a pretty good job keeping me somewhat warm and mostly dry, but it made me look fat - not pregnant, just fat.
Tuesday I ran in the same pullover because it looked like it might rain again and it was sort of chilly out. Well, it didn't rain and I got overly warm so I took the pullover off and tied it around my waist - or rather, I tried to tie it around my waist, until I remembered - I don't have a waist anymore! The darn thing kept slipping off and I had to tie it around my neck, which sucked because a.) it looked ridiculous and b.) it kept sliding back and choking me.
Wednesday I had to run early in the morning again because my daughter had another field trip. Thankfully, it's getting light out earlier and the sky was already a light grey when I set off.
Friday I tried to fit in the 8 miles I should have done on Wednesday, but only got 6.5 because I happened to run by someone I know and (to be polite) I stopped to chat, which didn't leave me enough time to get in the other 1.5 miles. I hate not reaching my goal, but at least it wasn't because of an injury!
Saturday I ran 4.5 miles on a beautiful, sunny, but cold morning.
All in all it was another great week. No aches and pains that I can't handle. The weather could have been slightly better, but as my mom always told me, "In everyone's life a little rain must fall."
