|At the Mendota River Bottoms 5k.
If you aren’t having fun, you’re doing it wrong!
Week 31 started off with a terrible 10 miler. I had company for 8 of it, and I was so thankful. Ryan and I chatted away so I only noticed my desire to stop and walk every mile or so vs. every second 🙂

|TNC at the race! These women are awesome. Not only did they come out to try to run a race through a half-swamp, but did so despite a forecast that looked like:|
Kristin (far right) won the 5k for women, and Lindsey finished right behind me. She’s also expecting, so it’s fun to swap pregnancy notes!!
I took the rain and forecast as a great excuse to skip a lot of my cool down miles. Sorry, Jerry. I promise, post-baby I’ll be more dedicated!

Week 31 non-training news:
|Breaking ground for the new house!|
|Day 2 digging|
|30 week growth scan.
Looks just like me, right? 🙂
|Baby is measuring a little smaller (percentile-wise) than the scan at 20 weeks, so we will do another scan at 34 weeks. I’m not surprised; I’m not exactly known for producing big babies!
20 week stats:
|Nate and Greta canning huge batches of salsa to use up the zillions of tomatoes our garden is giving us! Nate learned to wear gloves while chopping jalepenos 🙂|
|Tried to capture the hilarity of my size while running. Failed. I swear, it’s a sight.|
|I was sent a few Skinny Coconut Oil products to try. I have been pleasantly surprised to really like a few of them:
-The Shampoo bar has an awesome aroma that still, 2 weeks later, helps scent our bathroom. It also doesn’t leave a film on my skin.
-The Sugar Scrub (pictured below)! When I first opened it, I thought: what? Am I just rubbing coconut oil and brown sugar all over my legs? Which… I am… but it leaves my legs super soft all day and doesn’t leave an oily feel like some lotions. I highly recommend this – and it would make a great gift!
|Sugar scrub. Awesome product!|
|And – wowzers, baby bump!
I now get comments from people around town when I’m running.
Both Greta’s school director and CSA farmer said someone commented, “Did you see that REALLY pregnant woman out running? Not just running, but running fast!”
They must have caught me on one of my good days 🙂
|Basement walls poured. Wow.|
