So, we had a baby. That's certainly changed things. And, I'd say that it's certainly been a good change. Probably because she's the most beautiful baby in the world. Well, half the time anyway. The other half of the time she looks more like Kuato. Hopefully, she'll grow out of that. We love her anyway.

As far as running goes, there hasn't been much going. Of course, I had grand plans of not skipping a beat, but 7 hours of sleep in the first three nights put the kibosh on that plan. I ended up taking a full week off after her birth, and it really showed on my first run back. I didn't feel as horrible as I thought I would, but I was really tight during and after. Another 2 days off followed, but I've actually run the last two days. These runs have coincided with two solid nights of sleep. Well, an average of 7 hours each of the last two nights. It takes us 12 hours to get those 7 hours, but we'll take it. Both runs have gone OK. I'm in more of a keep-the-blood-flowing mode, but that's the best I can hope for right now. And, based on a lot of horror stories we've heard about barely sleeping at all when a baby arrives, I am not complaining. Weather looks nice tomorrow, so I'll probably try to make it three in a row. Just short runs, but they've been nice. Serious training can wait. Although, I've hatched a bit of a scheme for the rest of the year. We'll see how it goes.
