Three fantastic things Thursday

It's Thursday again!!! Woohoo I like is the day I began a new week of pregnancy and it is almost the weekend, it is also the one day my kids or I don't have to be anywhere!! SO it's a good day all the way around. Oh and of course it is Three things Thursday..............

1. Has anyone seen the movie old dogs??? If not you have to watch it! If you have kids older than mine (so over 4) it is a pretty mild comedy with Robin Williams and John Travolta in it.....I laughed so hard I cried and my brother was barley breathing in some parts it was just that silly! I don't usually post anything about movies because it is not my thing, but this was a gut buster for sure!

2.My legs hurt today......should I be surprised? Probably not, it has been a short millennium since the last time I is the good hurt like "heeyyy remember these muscles?" My booty was sore last night, I asked for a massage but no takers...sigh I will never understand why everyone rejects Gallatea ...( butt) I know she is big, but she really is a good muscle!

3. Is really feeling like I am getting my groove back, I had a short run again this morning with both girls and now I am looking for some shorter races to do! I have my eye on the Suntrust Richmond 8k! It seems like the perfect distance and I have some friends that are doing it! was also named one of America's friendliest marathons and I would love to be around all the runners I have missed racing and starting to feel the itch....these are all positive's! Maybe now that the pressure is off to go faster (since I got knocked up) it is about just doing it, my mind is in a different spot and I think this is a good thing!!!

Ok anyhow itty bitty has stripped to nothing and is playing in her yogurt, I think child neglect has gone far enough this morning! Have a wonderful end of the week everyone!!

Changing my tune! and needing some advice

Hello Bloggers!

I know it has been a few weeks and I had promised to be better about running and blogging, but if I am being honest life has been very busy and both of those things got sent to the back burner.

Well, I got to thinking and I realized that I have forgotten to put myself first and how much happier everyone is when Mommy runs, I knew it would be tough to pick up and run again because running it just that.......... tough, but today after dropping Little missy at school, Itty bitty and I hit the trail!

We loved it! It was a beautiful 65 degrees and breezy and it was just a beautiful, but slow run, Mile 1 was 11:26 and mile 2 11:43 I am ok with this I will accept that I have lost considerable amount of fitness over the last few months, but as soon as I was done that euphoria, that high...the looking down at my calves and saying yeahhh baby all came back!

I should also mention I have to take things slower because we are expecting baby #3!!!! but I think this has also given me reason to get back out there and stay in this is where the advice comes in..I know many of you amazing runners were pregnant running mommies, what are your best tips???

Well that in short is a quick catch up as too what has been happening around this house! I have to run off and do something else before the day gets away! I hope all is well with everyone and school has been treating you well!!
