It’s hard to imagine I have a couple more weeks left in this pregnancy. As my arms and legs are skinny from inactivity, my stomach cannot possibly stretch any farther. It makes me hope that these last two weeks are more for the baby’s development than growing! I am anxious to have our baby girl and get my legs moving again. The weather has been gorgeous here in Mammoth Lakes and it has me wanting to get out and run. December, when we received almost 18 feet of snow, it was easy to keep my running shoes buried deep in the closet, but now that it’s nice out, I want to cover some mileage on my favorite streets and trials.
This weekend, instead of running myself, I indulged by watching the great coverage online of USATF Cross Country Nationals and also received updates on the Indoor Games in Boston. In San Diego there were great performances as our US Cross Country team earned their way to World Cross in Spain. In Boston it was fun to see athletes performing so well indoors with US Nationals around the corner. Sunday, as The Big Game went on, I took our dog for a walk and then Andrew and I painted my stomach with a Valentine theme of two large, pink and red hearts. This proved to be an amusing way to spend the afternoon and also meant to encourage the baby to hurry up in time for Valentine’s Day. I wouldn’t mind sharing my Valentine birthday with her.
So, with the nursery set up and my running goals coming back strong, I am merely waiting for the birth of our baby so I can learn to balance being the ultimate mom with a successful career. There are plenty of moms out there doing it, so thanks to all of you for being an inspiration.
