Fall Schedule

Sounds crazy to already be thinking about the fall schedule, but since I am not running this summer I am in planning mode.  Wait, since I am pregnant I am in nesting mode. Which pretty much means I need to get everything, in life, in order.

I have already signed up for two events this fall, I have also learned one of my favorite events has changed.  For the past two years I have participated in the Iron Girl Seattle, which had been a 5K/10K event in early September. I figured I would sign up and walk the event being so close to the babe's due date. However, I learned that they are no longer doing the 5K/10K event but instead a Triathlon. This year, there is no way I can participate in a Tri, so maybe I will get to see you next year Iron Girl.

The first event I signed for was The Biggest Loser Seattle 5K.  Stacie over at Impossible is Nothing set up a team and when I joined the team I saved $5 off the registration price. If you would like to join the team please do so, just search for team 'Impossible is Nothing' when you register.

Yesterday, I also registered for the Seattle Half Marathon.  I have wanted to make this my come back half since finding out I was pregnant. I had not registered as I was waiting for Zozi to have a deal. They finally did. It isn't as good as last year, but I have a credit at Zozi and it ended up only costing me $21. If you want to use the Zozi deal ($75 for the half), I would suggest using my referral credit and saving an additional $10 off the cost. To do that you will need to set up a new account w/ new credit card if you are already a Zozi member. Then order through my referral link

Those are my events for the fall, I am considering a 10K in October but nothing is jumping out at me just yet.

How far ahead to plan for races?

Welcome to week 32


I know I have been slacking on blogging so I thought I would pop in an share with you some updates on me.

We have finalized a name of our little one: Jillian Grace will be joining big sister Genevieve 'Evie' Marie on or around August 1st.

 
My official due date is August 8th, but I will be having a c-section again. Due to my hips being pinned from breaking my pelvic at the young age of 18.  We are excited to have the date set, however we are just hoping to make it there. With #1 we only made it to 38w1d before signs of pre-e came on strong and caused my blood pressure to sky rocket.  This time, my blood pressure seems to be under control and I am hopefully I will hit the date.
 
Overall this pregnancy is improving. A lot of the round ligament pain I was having is going away which is a surprise to me, but of course it is replaced with exhaustion.  I love the warmer weather we get, but my body is not processing it well this time around.  
 
Meals are getting smaller, although I feel like I eat all the time. I am loving grilled cheese lately and fountain Coke. Fresh fruit is amazing - I am loving that it is cherry season and can't get enough of them lately. 
 
Things are well and I even started signing up for some fall events to get back in the swing of things. I will post more about that tomorrow. 

Hope all is well with everyone, I miss blogging but I am reading. :)
