pregnant running


i'm still running while pregnant, albeit much slower and for much shorter distances. occasionally, a group of high school boys will drive by on their way to school and honk at me. it always makes me laugh because they usually honk while still coming up behind me and then i get to watch them look twice when they realize that 1) i'm at least 10 years older than they are and 2) i'm pregnant.

for the most part, i'm still able to wear all of my regular running shorts and pants. shirts, however, are a different story. you'll notice in this picture that i'm wearing two shirts. the bottom shirt is an extra large t-shirt that i bought on clearance at old navy. because it is an extra large, the neck and shoulders are way too big, but the length is perfect, so i just top it off with another shirt that actually fits on top, but not on bottom. with the two combined, i have the perfect running shirt =) i suppose i could just buy some maternity running clothes, but as much as i love this running skirt, i'm too cheap to shell out the money for it. besides, it's kind of fun to have the challenge of creating new outfits out of the old pre-pregnancy clothes.

You are adorable, as always. That cracks me up about the honking. I remember being pregnant with Judah and getting the same thing while out walking.

so cute you are! i remember those days. i liked to redo my outfits and stay out of maternity as long as i could. it became a game until i just ran out of cards. then it's fun to see how fast you can return to said clothing. =) enjoying the baby bump documentary! glad you're so excited. enjoy every moment! it goes so fast.
