Work With Me

Baby with the Wild Hair.

Workout fail, kind of.

I had 16 miles on the schedule for today.  Halfway through the week Glenn emailed me with a marathon pace workout for the long run.

Marshall, Marathons and an Ironman

Marshall is 5 weeks old. The first two-three weeks of his life were really hard. Amazing, but hard. I was exhausted, sore from surgery, breastfeeding was painful and I was scared to death every time we set him down for bed. Slowly but surely, everything started getting easier.
