3 for 3

First of all, I want to take a moment to give my friends, Erin and Ryan, a special shout out since they just announced that Erin is pregnant. Ahem.

"CONGRATULATIONS!!!"

Won't these two have a beautiful baby? And isn't Ryan gonna be peeved that I posted this pic below of them? (I took it at the Poison concert back at the end of August -- approximate time of conception as best as I can estimate; hmmm...I guess it gives new meaning to "Every Rose Has Its Thorns"...but that's a thought for another day -- anyway, I told them to pose like they were in a yearbook pic: Ryan didn't like that, as is demonstrated by a look that I think he'll recognize on his future child when said child is crapping its pants.) So, take a moment, and hop on over to both of their blogs and congratulate them. It really is wonderful news!

Anyhoo, since my walking partner is preggers, she wasn't really feeling up for a walk tonight (actually, that's only partially true; she's also swamped at work, but I like to refer to her as "preggers" or "prego" and I only have about 7 months to do so; thus, I like to get it in as often as possible). Therefore, I went for another 3 mile run instead.

Again, it felt good: weather remains lovely and temperate and the legs felt good and strong. I am the queen of 3 right now. Don't mess with me and that short distance.

rock that 5K...

I like "bun in the oven" but apparently that is more derogatory than "preggers."

CollegeGirl said...

Congrats to them! :)

And I like calling people preggers and prego too!

Marcy said...

LMAO Wendy! I never thought any of those were derogatory, only when I got called "fat". Yeah not good.

CONGRATS to them!! ;D ;D

How very exciting to have all those "buns in the oven"!

Running 3 miles is great and keeps you still active, but not too hard on the legs. Great job!

Mendy said...

That's awesome for your friends!!!

I'm liking the 3 mile runs these days too, although I haven't quite caught up to you, yet. But, getting out there is what counts, right.

Nicole said...

Congrats to your friends and nice job on the run.

I have to wonder just how many kids were actually conceived to that song. How many trailers set to rockin'?

(don't come a knockin')

way to keep knockin' out the 3 milers!

Nice on the consistency! That is so exciting about your friends and I am LMAO that you made them do a yearbook pose picture!!!

I love the 3 too. Its my "non-run-run"

Erin said...

Ahem, thanks for the shout out but the baby was not conceived in August. Poison may have brought us together...but that night was not the night. LOL!

I will be back in walking shape soon. This brewing a baby sure takes the energy right out of you and top that off with crazy stress at work and hosting conference calls at 9pm...whew! I am beat.

Thanks again for the shout out!

Ryan said...

Thanks for the shout out Jess. Good work on the running. You have been running more that a prune taster with a stomach virus.

Poison Concert? HA HA
I went to one 2 years ago and met a Colombian Drug Lord with long hair and lots of silver jewelry. seriously.

Laura N said...

Congrats to your friends! Great picture. 3 miles is my friend, too. You're out there--that's what counts right now.

Nice job sticking with the 3-miles. Perfect distance to clear the head, get a workout, but not exhaust yourself.
