Friday, June 15, 2012's been a long time!

WOW, it has been a long time! I guess pregnancy has gotten the best of me. I have been so busy with getting ready for the baby that I haven't had time for much of anything. But, I promise that starting today, I'm going to be back on the blogging bandwagon! :)

Just to catch my readers up on a few things...

1. We have found out that we are having a BOY! Samuel Chapman Satterly is due to make his appearance into the world on August 28th! We are so very excited about this new venture in life. I'm so blessed to have the husband and families that I have to support me through this endeavor.

2. Am I still running? YES! I will be 30 weeks pregnant on Tuesday, and running is still a part of my routine. I've slowed down quite a bit and I have to get up pretty early to beat the beat, but it's worth it to know that running can only make labor and delivery easier. This is a big plus for me considering my plan is to welcome our little guy into the world with the use of NO drugs. YIKES! We'll see what happens! :)

3. I've been running in the Brooks Green Silence shoe for awhile now, long enough to have gone through about five pairs of them. The shoe still exists, but they have changed the material and they aren't as flexible. I ended up taking a pair back that I bought. I'm beginning to have some trouble finding the old version in my size, so I'm thinking about switching shoes. I am seriously considering the Brooks PureConnect. The PureConnect or the PureCadence seem to be the closest to what I'm running in now. My question is...has anyone run in them? Do you like them or not? 

4. Also, my Garmin is getting ready to call it quits. I am seriously looking to the Garmin Forerunner 405 as a replacement. Anyone use this watch? Like or dislike?

 With all that said, it feels great to be back in the blogging world. I promise I will keep you all posted on the pregnancy and everything that goes with it. My next post will be a review and giveaway of RazzyRoo headbands, so keep your eyes peeled!


  1. Having had an epidural with my first delivery and going to drug-free the second I can tell you drug-free is the way to go! I felt awesome after Codi was born and was able to get up and move around within a few minutes. Good luck!

  2. Congratulations on having a little boy! That is great that you have been able to keep running during your pregnancy. Sorry I don't have any advice on the Brooks or Garmin.
