I've considered myself a runner for at least the last 8 years or so. I have finished a few marathons, half marathons and other races. But a week or so ago my confidence in my ability to still be a "runner" was a little shattered.
I had every intention of being one of those pregnant woman that run up until they are due. Well that quickly went out the window when I was on bed rest for a big chunk of the beginning of my pregnancy, then too scared to be running and then too late to start running while pregnant. So I've stuck to walking.
I was walking outside the other day and a bee flew in my hair. Which I think will always make me run. I ran probably 5 yards. You would have thought I ran at least a mile. Running with this belly was a complete change in my sense of gravity and I immediately felt like I was front heavy, carrying another person. Oh wait I guess I am. But a very very small person.
I was out of breathe, hot, tired and then also slightly concerned.
It's hard to imagine getting back into running shape and becoming a runner again. But I sure plan on working on it in the Fall.
On a different note this may be my favorite maternity outfit so far. I got this dress this Winter at Old Navy for less than $5. It's not a maternity dress, just extra baggy!
