Here Comes the Heat

Andrew and I leave for Arizona next Saturday morning and the race is on Sunday. I headed over to the Running Room today to grab a singlet that would actually fit over my bump in a way that won’t scream, “I’m pregnant!!!” and I found a super cute Asics one that looked quite drapey on the hanger. I usually wear a size xs, so I figured if I went all the way up to a medium that I’d have a tonne of room to hide the baby house. Well, I got home and it uhh… doesn’t hide the baby house. It pulls in all the wrong places. But, I’ll wear it anyway because it’s cute and it’ll look aiiight with my black Nike shorts.

I’ll show you a picture later. I’m super comfy sitting in a sunny spot in the kitchen. God knows I need the vitamin D.

Andrew hasn’t really trained for this half marathon at all, and I’m not racing it; I’ll stick with him and help him along. In reality, I will probably run from port-a-potty to port-a-potty with my bum clenched as I offer sweaty prayers to the poo gods that they don’t bless me with a pair of Nikes filled with chocolate pudding.

I think we’re aiming for a sub-2 hour half. Our incentive in finishing the thing as fast as possible is to get back out into the heat and sloth around the pool in our thong bathing suits. Later on that day, we’re heading to a Diamondbacks game which honestly? Excites me way more than the race itself. I can’t wait to bust out of this dreary stale ass weather stank city and get a couple more sun spots and wrinkles in sunny Arizona. Oh! So, I hormone-drunk ordered a bunch of clothes from Gap maternity and I’ve got a pair of black roll over bikini bottoms and some cut off jean shorts en route to my front door. I didn’t buy any tops, but quite frankly, my boobs are absolutely amazing right now and shame on me if I even think about hiding them. Nobody puts Baby in a corner.

Throw-back photo of us at the Diamondbacks game:

How badly do you guys need the heat right now?

What’s the most you’ve ever spent online shopping?

Have any of you guys NOT seen the movie Dirty Dancing?

    Its pouring rain outside this morning so I could really use some warm and sunny weather! Really, I need it to be sunny on the weekends so I can actually enjoy it. During the week I don’t even know if its sunny out because Im stuck working in a basement office with no windows all day!

    • suzy.suzyheather@gmail.com March 31, 2017, 8:34 am

      OH. MY. I had no idea you worked in a basement with no windows. I hope you take like 736262848464b units of Vitamin D. DANG that’s awful.

    I’m scared to think there are people who haven’t seen dirty dancing! I’m so ready for the warm weather and even for baseball season to start! not that I want hockey season to end but it’s looking like it will end for us over here, ugh. I recall getting great gap maternity clothes back in the day!

    • suzy.suzyheather@gmail.com March 31, 2017, 8:33 am

      Yeah, I can’t even IMAGINE someone missing out on Dirty Dancing! GASP!

  • Susie @ Suzlyfe March 31, 2017, 3:44 am

    GIVE ME THE HEAT. Please. I’m so tired of the f-ing cold rain. Bugger it all to hell.

    • suzy.suzyheather@gmail.com March 31, 2017, 8:32 am

      BUGGER IT ALL TO HELL!!!! The sun is gone again here, of course. SIGH

    I’m liking our weather right now..it’s around the 50s and 60s with some sun, so it just feels nice. If it can stay mild like this until after my marathon I’ll be happy! Next time you guys are coming down here for a race let me know because I would love to cheer for you! Good luck to you, baby, and Andrew 🙂

    • suzy.suzyheather@gmail.com March 31, 2017, 8:32 am

      Yes, this is perfect marathoning weather, that’s for sure! Good point! And man, would I ever LOVE to come visit you, although you haven’t exactly been selling me on the weather. :/

  • Laura @ This Runner's Recipes March 31, 2017, 10:27 am

    SUNSHINE!!! Soak it all up! I’ve been literally sunbathing in 45 degree weather, all bundled up, because at least there’s some sunshine. Have fun this weekend and good luck to all three of you on the race (baby’s first half marathon!).

    • suzy.suzyheather@gmail.com March 31, 2017, 2:59 pm

      It’s actually not until next weekend but I think I did a terrible job in articulating that because everyone is wishing us good luck for this weekend. Oops!

  • Megan @ Meg Go Run March 31, 2017, 11:24 am

    I don’t buy clothes online because I really have to try thrm on. I once in awhile will get shoes but generally I like to actually go out and shop.

    • suzy.suzyheather@gmail.com March 31, 2017, 2:59 pm

      True. But then the incentive lies in not having to drag a screaming toddler around the mall. Ha!

    Are those Birkenstocks Gizehs?

    • suzy.suzyheather@gmail.com April 4, 2017, 12:33 pm

      Ohhh maybe. I gave them to my friend Melody because I didn’t like how they felt between my toes. I love my three strap Birks.

  • Meghan@CleanEatsFastFeets April 4, 2017, 12:45 pm

    I hope your trip is filled with sunshine, boobies and poo free sneakers.

    • suzy.suzyheather@gmail.com April 4, 2017, 7:11 pm

      Me too.
