New Post-Baby PDR

This past weekend I knew I needed to fit in a nice run now that the temps are warming up. I texted my friend Amanda who had offered to run with me any time. I took her up on her offer and she stopped by on Sunday. The temps were perfect! I suited up Patsy (literally, she was in her pink snow suit) and got ready to go.
Patsy is not impressed
(The top that I'm wearing is the Oiselle side zip top. It is my new favorite piece for running in the cold! If you want one of your own, it is available here.)

I have only been doing only 1.5-2 mile runs and I knew I wanted to push up the distance this week. 3 miles used to be a drop in the bucket run and so I knew I would be able to do it. It was definitely fun to have Amanda there to push me and motivate me. She was even gracious enough to take this awesome video of me!

Shamrock Shuffle training is well underway and I definitely think I will be able to comfortably make it across the finish line in a few weeks. Will you be running the Shamrock Shuffle? I'm planning to bring Patsy and my SILs are going to watch her during the race. It will be my post-baby debut and I'm pretty pumped about it.


  1. Yay! Fun! Thanks for asking me! I almost wore my pink bear snow suit too...Patsy and I could have been twinsies! Darn!

    Way to go!!!

  3. I am running the Shamrock Shuffle too! Great job getting out there!

  4. I love Patsy's snowsuit. It looks like the starfish one Maggie from the Simpsons wears.

  5. I had so much fun too! Haha, I wish you would have worn it!!!!!!!! :)

  6. Haha, I never thought of that! She had a great time feeling the wind in her wispy hair.
