Turtles, Herons, Deer, Oh My!

For those of you following along, I’m still run/walking! It’s really mostly a walk these days, but I’m happy to be getting in these kinds of miles at 35 weeks pregnant. And maybe it’s because I’m doing 70% of walking, but I also have been noticing much more wildlife on my runs, which I’ve been enjoying so much.

For example, this week I saw deer, blue herons, turtles, and more. Here are some pics:

Can you spot the blue heron (above)?

How about the snapping turtle? 

And here’s what this week looked like from a running/walking standpoint:

Sunday: 2.5 miles – I was able to get in a run/walk with the kids before heading to the beach!

Monday: 4.5 miles

Tuesday: 4.8 miles

Wednesday: 5.13 miles

Thursday: 5.42 miles

Friday: 4.75 miles

Saturday: 3.01 miles

Total: 30.11 mi

Weeks Pregnant: 35

Running Streak Day (If you count the run/walks): 422

Sunday’s run was with the kids – you can see B even took a pic of us together! It was HOT but after we did our run, we had bagel sandwiches and went to the beach. So, it was 100% a win win!

And of course, HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!! I’m so lucky to be able to celebrate two great dads – my own father and my husband, who are both great dads, grandfathers, examples, and more.

Some questions for you

  • A coworker told me this week she “Wasn’t a bagel person” – are you a bagel person? (I didn’t know that was a thing!)
  • If you had to choose – bagels or donuts?

Linking up with Deborah and Kim for the Weekly Run Down.

  1. WHAT? There’s such a thing as NOT being a bagel person??? I suppose she doesn’t like chocolate either.
    Great week of run/walking! Your mileage is impressive, especially since you’re walking a lot of it- that takes a lot of time!

  2. Every year when we went to Florida, there was a blue heron on the pier at the house where we stayed. We named him Harry. This year, when I went to see Holly, there he was…and then when I came home, I spotted him in the creek where I run. Lol! Fun to spot them.

    It’s awesome that you are still streaking this far along in your pregnancy!

  3. Well, I like both bagels and donuts, so my choice would depend on the time of day. It’s great to see that your streak is still alive!
