Busy Day: Half Marathon & Gender Reveal!

Well geez, talk about a busy, busy day.  I am pretty sure that the last time I was this tired, I had just completed 30+ hours of labor, culminating with birthing a tiny human.  Okay, I completely exaggerate – I am NO WHERE NEAR that tired, but still I am still pretty beat.  So I apologize that my brain isn’t working as sharply as usual and this post probably won’t be my best work, haha.  This morning I ran my 10th half marathon this year (2013) and ran the San Antonio Rock N Roll half.  And while I was light years away from my personal best of 1:53 something, I just barely beat my almost third trimester goal of breaking 2 hours and 30 minutes, coming in at 2:29.42.  I think that was like 11:15-ish minute miles, but I guess considering my size (LOL) and the weather I am happy with it.  So yes, it was really, really hot. And humid.  On our drive home my car read 93 degrees just to give you an idea.  It was also the first real race I have ever run in shorts and a T-shirt.  Crazy since one day earlier this week the low at my house was 28 degrees and the high that day was like 53.  All in all though, I feel great. I totally over trained for this (surprise) and my legs aren’t sore at all.  I will put some pics at the very bottom.  And as usual, we saw some creative signs while running.  Here are some of my faves:

  • Toenails are for sissies
  • You’re running faster than the US government
  • Worst parade ever
  • Never trust a fart during a marathon
  • You’ve been training for this longer than Kim Kardashian was married!
  • Labor & Delivery is worse (held by a pregnant lady)

Then, we had vegan brunch at Green and raced home to get ready for our big Gender Reveal!!!  It was so much fun and so awesome and we are so excited!!  I think it’s already been leaked, but in case you haven’t already heard, as it turned out, Scott was ELATED to not have to drop an F bomb and throw the cake knife on the floor in front of everybody as we are having a…


Here you can watch our reactions: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_-Z77mwU6nU.  Scott is very quiet this evening; he must be soaking it in.  Here’s what he had to say about his future son:

M: Scott, Everyone wants to know what you are thinking right now.

S: No they don’t.

M: Scott, how are you feeling right now?

S: Ecstatic.

M: Seriously, can you elaborate on what’s going through your head right now?

S: No, I can’t.

M: Are you glad it’s a boy?

S: Yes.

M: Are you going to love him more than Landri?

S: Never.

M: So you’re gonna love Landri more?

S: I can’t love anyone more than Landri.

M: What are you most excited to teach your son?

S: How to stay away from his crazy mother.

M: Funny, I would have thought it would have been how to throw the perfect spiral.  Any final words to share?

S: No.
