Damm's ROTC is manning the water stations along the route. The race happens to take place on my birthday, March 29. This doesn't upset me at all. Participating in a race is, like, a perfect birthday day :D Then Damm suggested I might like to try walking part of it. So I hopped on to see what kind of race lengths they have. There is the marathon, and then an honorary march of 15 miles.
I don't know. Were I not pregnant I wouldn't have hesitated. Had they had a 10k I would've done it. I'm concerned about a 15-mile walk though, especially as my training is only now beginning to build back up. So I'm thinking that maybe I could volunteer with Damm. Get the in-laws to watch the Orclette. Though maybe a slightly shorter shift as they have to stay until the last participants passes and that could be up to 8 hours depending on where he gets stationed ...... we'll see.
On the health front: I gained a pound! I think it's from eating incredibly salty foods yesterday, namely pizza and spaghetti, but still. Tums seem to help my stomach upsetness, making it very bearable. And I can still run. Last time with the Orclette I quit running really early on because it felt uncomfortable. Hasn't happened yet this time. Only about a mile right now and I can't see increasing the distance too much but I want to have a workout I can do right up until the day the kiddo makes its appearance in the world. And then my mother will be there and she won't let me do ANYTHING for 2 weeks other than sleep, try to eat, feed baby, repeat. This is a good thing. Left on my own I'd probably do something stupid :D
