The one with the belly shot.



It's been a while since I've put my big ol' belly on display so I figured it was about time. You know, since I only have about a month left and I'm getting huge these days. So, lucky you! You get a pic!

But first, let's talk about yesterday's run. After a week of killer temps in the 90s, yesterday was a relatively mild day temps in the high 80s. Still hot. Still humid. But more or less run-able for me. And that's what I did. I went out for 3.1 miles in my neighborhood. It was hotter than I expected. And it more humid. Overall, a bit tongue-wagging:


Seriously, while I was pretty hot and sweaty after the run, I loved every minute of it. I had one of those days yesterday and really, really needed the run. My little guy was all about misbehaving yesterday and by the time Owen got home from work all I needed was to shake out my frustration with a good run.

Yup, I loved getting out there.

Here I am sweaty, red-cheeked and happy after my run:


Note the dead, pesky black fly on my forehead. There were tons of them out there last night. What gives? I don't know. I seem to have fly issues this year and they just gross me out. I was swatting them away all run. Yuck!

Anyway, with my run done, I enjoyed some pizza and a quiet Friday evening.

And now . . . I bring you my belly pic! Here I am at 35.5 weeks pregnant (one calendar month until my due date!):


I know, I look a little unsure about sharing my heft with the Internets but, what the heck, right? And, if I'm going to do it, I might as well share a photo with a weird angle. Yikes. Sorry, folks, it's all I've got.

So that's me these days. Lots of belly. But still moving!

Hope you all have a great weekend! I'm wishing my running pals lots of luck in Monday's 5K. Woo hoo -- those new runners just keep on running! Go, mamas!

You look great! Well, maybe not in the first photo! ; ) I've had a couple of bugs stuck to my face this week, too, but maybe not a cloud of them like you've had, though. Only one month to go for you - too exciting!

I love the belly shot and that you're still active while pregnant. I hope I will be too, in a few years when my fiance and I get married and decide to have kids. Your blog posts give me hope that I won't have to completely give up running for 9+ months!
