As I mentioned yesterday, it's hot now here in South Florida, and it was time to find some running tops that fit my new preggo belly. See, normally I run year-round in just a sports bra and shorts, and that's what I did for about the first 12-14 weeks of my pregnancy because I wasn't really showing at that point. But about 8 weeks ago, I started donning some tech shirts I have because the growing pudginess in my middle made me self-conscious about having it out in the open.
Soon, those tech shirts were too small to fit over my growing baby-belly, so I was substituting some oversized t-shirts that I have (some of which are race shirts that I thought I'd never have use for because they were so big -- turns out, they make decent maternity house shirts), but as I said yesterday, these are mostly cotton t-shirts and are certainly not cut out for running in FL's heat and humidity.
I checked online at some maternity running tops, but some were priced as much as $58 a top! And I'm sorry, but I'm way too cheap to pay that for a regular shirt, let alone one I plan on only wearing for a few months. So, instead I went to Target this morning and bought some tech shirts in a size large. I went with larges because I think the length will work out the best. See, they are definitely too roomy on top:
So, for the run, it slid around a bit, but I'm only doing 3 milers these days so it's not like I have to endure the slouchy top for a long time period. But I am glad I bought the new tech shirts because in these newly increased temps (it was about 85 at 7 pm), the running is HOT.
Aside from the shirt business, the 3 miler went pretty well. Jerry ran with me, so that was nice.
Now, my next maternity-running apparrel that I need to search for is some new bras. And I know I won't be able to find those for $9.99!
