Angels 5k & Fun Run

I love my 5ks! Especially after those trail runs, lol. They are bittersweet; the first mile is a breeze, the second I’m debating if I’m going to pick up my pace or die, and the third goes by so fast I don’t even realize I just past the finish line! Well, that’s the way I see my 5ks =) My most recent Angels 5k & Fun Run had to be by far my favorite run and course. I wouldn’t think at 20 weeks pregnant I would say that.

The event itself along with the charities the race supported was enough to get me to register, let alone it was at Angel Stadium! Go Angels! I did study the course a few days before the race, not like this always helps as the course could change but it at least gives me an idea of where I’m going.  Being pregnant (I forget sometimes) I wasn’t expecting to get a good time. This run surprised me though I did manage to maintain a 8 minute mile. The course was a nice flat surface with a slight dip when you ran through the dugout near the end of mile 3 inside Angel Stadium. I think I’m still in “awe” that I wasn’t running uphill, hahaha. The weather was calling for rain but started just after we finished the race. This run reminded me a lot of the OC Fair Run; awesome vendors,  great location and a whole lot of fun. I know I’ll be registering again for this run next year, this time with a double BOB ;p

Not to shabby for 20 weeks pregnant! I'll take it =)

Halfway There

20 weeks and already filling so big! At least I'm halfway there =)

I can’t believe I’m already filling out hospital paperwork again. This pregnancy is moving along faster than my first. I guess I just have a lot more to focus on and do. My anatomy scan was this past Friday and everything went well. Little Little is healthy and very active for 20 weeks! The experience is still very exciting and I’m learning something new everyday. Little Little tends to be a night owl and will start their kicks late night until I wake up early morning. I just love those baby kicks! We’ll see how long that lasts in a couple more weeks, lol. Baby Baby is starting to notice my bump and the little changes, he’ll run up and pat it with a huge grin. He’s going to be an amazing big brother.

We plan to announce Little Little’s gender within the next few weeks. I originally wanted to wait but we had so much fun announcing Baby Baby, I figured we’d do something similar =) We do have a lot going on right now so the less I can stress…I’m all about it. Between babymoon plans and daily adventures, I’m trying to take advantage of all the time I can get before Little Little arrives. Especially the time I get with Baby Baby while he’s still an only child!
