Yesterday we drove down to Denver to take in the annual St.Patrick’s Day Parade. My coworker has an amazing loft downtown right along the parade route. We had a perfect view as the floats went by, but got to enjoy with food, drinks and the warmth of being inside. Ella really enjoyed it.
Today was more low-key and had me feeling old. It wasn’t long ago that Josh and I would have been out drinking green beer and getting rowdy. Today, no rowdiness other than Ella’s complete meltdown at the store when I told her that she could not eat yogurt at the store. Instead of drinking, I took two naps because I was feeling exceptionally worn out. After I peeled myself out of my bed I went to the gym. Though it was a nice 60 degrees outside, the 40 mph winds were not really conducive to a long run. I hopped on the treadmill for 10 miles. Of course I had to stop every 2-3 miles for a bathroom break. No denying this baby is getting bigger!
Regardless of my slow overall pace, 9:40s not counting my bathroom breaks, the run felt good. I sent a new second trimester distance record. If I am able to run 11 next weekend, I’ll seriously consider registering for the half marathon I have my eye on. I just need to double-check porta-potty locations.
I hope you all had a good St. Patty’s Day!
