Baby Hiatus

I accustomed to getting a weekly "Awesome Training" e-mail or something to that effect from Dailymile, one of the sites where I track my running. This week, I received the e-mail above, because, for the first time in 1 1/2 years, I had no workouts last week and I haven't run in over 2 weeks.

I have a good excuse, my baby girl was born 2 weeks ago. My wife ended up having a C-section and then came down with an illness a day after we got home, so I've been the primary baby / house / kid wrangler since baby girl arrived. I have had a few opportunities to do something, but just haven't been able to get myself out to run.

I hope to get out and resume running soon. I have decided not to race the Iron Turkey this upcoming weekend, as I don't want to spend money on a race when I don't think I'll do well or be satisfied with the result. Hopefully, I'll get a chance to still race once or twice before the end of the year.

I'm thrilled with my expanded family, but am looking forward to getting back to my running routine.

  1. Congrats on the new addition to your family!! The roads, trails, tracks, and races aren't going anywhere...you'll have plenty of opportunities to train and race once things settle down a little bit.
