I'm awesome ...

29 years ago today, this adorable face entered the world.

Yup. I was a rock star back then too.

And yesterday, this adorable face rocked 20 miles in 3:04:26 (9:13 pace).

Over 20 minutes faster than I ever have before. It was awesome.
Happy Birthday to me.

A very happy birthday to you! Go you for rocking out that pace! I finally hit my goal of over 3 miles pregnant yesterday! I made it to 3.16 miles on the treadmill as we are engulfed in snow and ice up here and it's not the safest to run outdoors. I did it in 41 flat, so I'm pretty proud of that. Thanks for the inspiration!
