33 weeks & still sweating

I am 33 weeks along with my second son. I'm not running too much, but I have had a ton of energy lately. I mostly use that energy to get things done before the baby arrives (before I run out of that energy).

I've been using this time to detail the car, move Lars' car seat over, prep dinners to freeze & other things like that. 

Lars is still involved in activites: gymnastics & a weekly outside play group. The gymnastics really tires me out! I think I need a nap more than Lars does afterwards.

How I've been working out is really all indoors. I'm such a baby with the heat during this pregnancy. I do a lot of leg exercises. While I do these (squats, fire hydrant leg lifts, ect), Lars practices his balance (well, kind of). 

He still does squats with me, but he didn't want his picture taken for that. 

Do you have a workout buddy?

Color Run Fun!

On Saturday morning, some friends and I got up too early to meet downtown for the Color Run. This is an annual event for me and my friends. We look forward to it every year! 

The very first color was blue (one of my favorites). Following that, before the next k, they had something special (which we all loved!), white (aka, sparkles). At first, I was wondering how white would show up when everyone was wearing white. Then, we went through it & we were sparkling!! It was a great surprise!

You can see the sparkles on my face.

They also had pink (another favorite of mine), yellow, orange and at the finish line, purple. 

They also handed out medals at the finish line this year. Another first that I loved! Sparkles were seen from miles away (no exaggeration). It was very cool, but I wouldn't want to be on the clean up crew. 

Do you do any runs like this (non-competitive)? I love this race & can't wait until next August!
