Three Things Thursday ...

I am super short for time today (more on that in a second), so here it is. Three Things Thursday ...

1. I woke up this morning hoping that this Thursday would be less stressful than last Thursday. And it was. For like 10 minutes. I have been so busy with our plans for this weekend (house guests, parties, etc) that I kind of neglected to remember that today was Doodle's birthday celebration at school (remedied by some last minute baking). Add to that a board meeting that I also neglected to remember and some early morning drama and let's just say, it's been a fun day. Fortunately, I have a much better attitude about it this week.

2. Yesterday's run was AWESOME!! Dilly and I headed out for four miles while Dizzle and Doodle were at dance class. It was a simple out and back, pushing the stroller with my Newtons on my feet. We finished in 34:14. Yeah, that's a 8:33 pace. Here we are afterwards.

Wonder how fast I am without the extra 50 lbs?

3. I won a running skirt on Monday over at Long Legs on the Loose. I am beyond excited. And am deciding between the pink and white dots or the floral print. Any suggestions? Oh, and Katye thinks I sold my soul to the running skirt gods to win. I swear I didn't. It was fate. Really.

And if you want to win something, check out my Run Like A Mother Book Giveaway. Entries will be accepted until Friday at Midnight!

I definitely want to get a jogging stroller when my baby is born. Do you recommend (or not recommend) any in particular?

Erin G said...

Awesome 4 miler! And I am still super jealous you won the running skirt; it would have looked so cute on me for the Cherry Blossom 10 Miler!

Cute picture of you and your doodle. Congrats on the win and fast pace with the stroller! I could try pushing Jameson in a "stroller" and see how fast I was.

Anne said...

Lucky you...you are definitely the running skirt queen :) Great job on that run...wow!

Erica said...

nice 4 miler, I say you have the whole blog giveaway gods paid off!! Maybe you pay off Random.org??? You gotta rub some of that luck on me :)

I totally love the mini-dot skirts so cute and I was just teasing before you deserve all of the giveaways even if I am jealous!

Momma Twitch said...

Nice pace!! I bet you'd be a TON faster without the 50lbs.

You're SO lucky you won, I say go with the floral print. It's way cute.

Melissa said...

Congrats on the running skirt!! I'm a polka dot fan myself. :)

Great time on the run.

Running Diva Mom said...

Love the after picture! Multi-tasking runs are great! You feel double-great afterwards! Keep it up mama!

Cynthia O'H said...

Get one; buy the other:)

Your day sounds like my Tuesday. Tomorrow will only be better.

Judi said...

Amazing pace with a stroller! I am so impressed! I'm not that fast just pushing myself! :) You running moms are amazing! I am feeling good at my current time average between 9 and 9:30. I don't think I could do this without my great running partner who would probably prefer running in the 8's!

But that is why I love to run it is really just a competition within.

Have a great Friday! (and congrats on the skirt)
