On Saturday, I ran the Gasparilla Distance Classic 5K at nineteen weeks pregnant. Before the race, I didn’t get many pats on the backs by fellow female athletes and I certainly didn’t get many sympathy points while I waited in line for the ladies room. Either other women couldn’t tell I was pregnant (which is a first EVER for me nearly 5 months pregnant) or they felt if I could run a 5K in my condition, then surely my bladder is another well trained muscle.
Despite the horrible rainy, cold weather, my huge humps and bouncy baby bump, I did really well and met my under 40 minute goal, but come back tomorrow for a full race report. While you wait in anticipation, let me get you love drunk thinking about my humps.
