2 miles :)

I just finished walking 2 miles on this beautiful day! It's only 62 degrees outside, the sun is shinning, and there is a wonderful cool breeze! It is a great day to be outside! I wish I could have kept going, but I'm still not sure how much my body can handle right now, and I didn't want to over do it! On the way back, I started having some major Braxton Hicks contractions, so I knew it was time for a rest. 

Having all my gadgets with me has also made it fun! My wonderful husband got me these awesome Altec bluetooth earphones:
Altec Lansing 903 BackBeat Headphones 
 I love them! They are amazing!
They allow me to take calls wirelessly as well, so if I needed to answer the phone while out there, I could do so with a push of a button! :)

Also I have been carrying my pink Nathan Quickdraw water bottle! I love it! It's almost like not even carrying a bottle at all. Plus I can keep my apartment gate key in the side pocket and not have to worry about it in my pants pocket. I know I have to stay hydrated during the pregnancy, so this has definitely come in handy! :)

And then of course my Garmin Forerunner 305!

I love that I can now see the route I am taking, and exactly how long it takes for each mile. It's just interesting to me! Plus I know how far I have walked and whether I need to keep going or turn around! It's just been very helpful!

I can't wait to use all of these things, plus my awesome pink jogging stroller very soon! :)

WooHoo! 
Now, as I have promised, I have a pair of Compression socks OR sleeves to giveaway from PRO Compression!

This is what PRO Compression has to say about how they work:
"PRO Compression socks are designed specifically to deliver both maximum comfort and speedy recovery times. 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…
