My Best Friends

Let me introduce you to my best friends during pregnancy.

They are also Copper's best friends. Anytime he sees me putting on the running shoes he goes completely insane. It made it difficult to go do yardwork because he would jump on me and cry until I caved and took him running.

This is my other best friend, the Garmin.

According to the Garmin, I have run 230 miles during my pregnancy. The Garmin also tells me (much to my chagrin) that I declined from an 11:00/mile to a 13:00/mile before I stopped. Slow. May I remind you, that to qualify for Boston I have to run 8:20s or something like that. Yikes. I didn't run the first 4 months because of a stupid IT band injury, and I stopped running 13 days ago (not that I'm counting). So by my fancy math, I ran roughly 12 miles a week up until a stupid hip injury made me stop again. I'm going to have my body checked out after I give birth so I stop hurting myself. Don't tell Coach Hasenbank, but it's probably because I don't stretch. Or cross-train. Or cool down or warm-up. Or do any sort of weights. Maybe I don't need to go to the doctor. I really miss running and hope I don't have to wait too long after delivery to start back up. The jogging stroller is itching to go.

Also, I registered for the Marine Corps Marathon in October, so I have to start training. I think they have a special Boston Qualifying time for people who gave birth in the past 6 months. I am going to qualify for that stupid race someday.

Other things I should quickly mention.

1. I have a Dr. appt tomorrow. This will be the last one with my doctor since she is giving birth on April 15th (my due date). So unless he comes soon, I get a new doctor.

2. I really love Benjamin Linus and am really happy that it looks like Penny is not dead. That means I also love Desmond Hume for pummeling Ben so he couldn't hurt Penny. I'm a little concerned that Ben killed Charlie 2.0 though... what else could he be apologizing to Desmond for?

3. Our stupid DVR only recorded the first 3 Idol performances. Irritating. But it was time for Scott to go. And I'm glad Lil was in the bottom 3, she needed a kick in the pants.

4. My dog conquered Sol.

  1. How can you like Benjamin Linus - he's so evil!! Desmond is one of my favorite characters, so I was happy to see the resolution of that issue in the story line this Wednesday.


A comment? For me? You shouldn't have. But please do.
