39 Weeks Pregnant and Running the Grand Old Day 5K!

>> Monday, June 06, 2011

My cute wife Pharmie and her running buddy Abbe met yesterday to "race" the Grand Old Day 5K. I made them matching signs for their backs:

Pharmie and Abbe pre-race

Just before the start


Talking and laughing under a mile into the race

Crossing the Ayd Mill bridge

I let them head up to the turn-around themselves as I stopped to cheer on other runners just past the 1 mile mark (also the 2 mile mark on the way back). Here's a ton of runners and some food tents being set up before "Grand Old Day" really got going:

Running back towards Snelling - less than a mile!

Nearing the finish

Less than a block to go! (You can tell by the wave
and the smiles that they were really shooting for PRs...)

Heading to the finish with Micah and Gus (Abbe's hubby
and pug) taking a photo on the far right

Congrats Pharmie and Abbe!! Hope you both "left a little in the tank" for labor! ;)

Unrelated reminder: if you didn't see my post from Saturday, make sure to scroll down and enter the giveaway! Thanks!

I've been putting off squeezing out a kid in part because I don't want to spend 9 months not running/racing. A shoutout to Pharmie for showing that baking a baby doesn't mean you have to be a lump on the couch!

Whew....I was worried you were going to show delivery pictures right on the race course.

It's great seeing some fit women running through their pregnancy.

This post would have been so much better if they had gone into labor while crossing the finish line!

But Hollywood ending or not, they both kicked some ass and are my heroes -- that's how I want to be like when I'm pregnant!

For a second, a split second, I thought "Micah" and "Gus" were the new baby names - LOL!

Getting passed by a woman is "getting chicked."
Getting passed by a blind athlete is "getting blinked."

But what about getting passed by a pregnant woman? Or two?

Getting prego'd?
Getting babied?
Getting pregnated?
Getting birthed?
