No Good Title...

Today I received some bad news...
I was pregnant for 7 1/2 weeks and I miscarried today...
That's the reason I had stopped running.
I was doing everything in my power to be safe. I had a miscarriage 3 months ago (at about 5 weeks) and was attempting to keep this one from ending the same way.  I knew at 7 weeks that I was farther along than last time and thought I may be in the clear this time. So we told our families. They were so excited! Now we are having to break their hearts and tell them it's no longer true...Cody and I had our time last night. Today was hard because I had to go to the doctor, which made it all more true. My mom came with me. I am ok though. I know that God has a plan, and He has a reason for everything. Cody and I will get through this, continue with our lives, and we will be pregnant again before we know it. Until then, Cody has the gym and his Master's  to work on. I have my running. :) I wanted to be a pregnant runner anyway, so now I have more time to become a runner,
before I become a running mommy. :)

When I got home from the doctor, these were waiting for me
I love my sweet husband :)

Oh and of course...
A cup of coffee! :) Yummy! Haven't had that in a while! :)

I had ordered these last week and they, of course, came in today...
What to Expect When You're Expecting: Fourth EditionThe Belly Book: A Nine-Month Journal for You and Your Growing Belly (Potter Style)Prenatal Yoga (20 Routines for Common Prenatal Issues for Each Trimester)

I am still looking forward to reading the book, The Belly Book will be great for the next time, and I may start doing the Yoga DVD just for the heck of it!

My bestie Crissy brought this over for us yesterday
Frogs are an "Aunt Crissy" thing :)
Can't wait till our future baby can play with it! :)

Now I just need this:
Garmin Forerunner 305 GPS Receiver With Heart Rate Monitor
So I can start working on my half-marathon training! :)

I am now two weeks behind on training and it looks like it will be another week before I can start back up...I am looking forward to next week! I also can't wait for the fall weather and to start running in the cool mornings! :) I just hope I can get up to par so I can continue with my First 5K on Thanksgiving Day! :)

This is what PRO Compression has to say about how they work:

The science is complex, but benefits such as improved blood flow, stability and comfort are universally understood.  The moment you put these socks on your feet and incorporate them into your game, you will feel and understand the difference."
I have 4 pairs of PRO Compression Marathon socks and I LOVE them! They have been wonderful for recovery after my last two halfs and after my long training runs!
I didn't own any after my first half, and it took me almost 2 weeks until I could …

Big News!

One of the reasons I haven't been blogging much is because we just bought our very first house!!! Isn't it beautiful!
We don't move in until next week, but buying a house has taken a lot of time! I've been packing our apartment up a little at a time, but we still have A LOT to do!
It's hard to move with a toddler, because you don't want to shake their world up too much. They need their usual toys and to be able to find their favorite shoes amongst the boxes. Taking it slow and moving a little at a time just seemed like the best option.
We are going from a 2 bedroom apartment to a 4 bedroom home!  With a backyard! Down the street from a park! We are going to have so much space!  Being able to go outside in the back and down the street to the park is a huge deal for me!  Sophie and I LOVE being outside! I am so excited! I just can't even describe it! lol :)
And that's not all of the big news!
I also got a job!
It is an office job, where I will be doing t…

Some of my Favorite Things!

I just wanted to share some of my favorite Running gear right now! :)
I'll start with the one thing that everyone knows I already love...
My BOBRevolution SE!
I've been using it for a a few weeks now and I'm still in Love! I'm not sure how I've lived without it these past 15 months! You can read my BOB "review" here! :)

My newest favorite thing are my hotpink Locklaces!

They are elastic shoelaces that  tighten by a "lock". They make it easy for me to just slip my shoe on and go! They are also wonderful because I have had issues with my shoelaces being too tight on the top of my foot and these fix that problem! No more pain! I wish I had known about these forever ago! I will have them on all of my future running shoes!
I love their moto!
Now onto something that I think every single person who is active outside should own. Pepper Spray.
In this case the Personal Saver and the Wrist Saver.
This i the Personal Saver I carry it on my keychain everyw…
