The Bois just celebrated his first birthday.
After a long year of growth and development and a lot of birthday partying, he "fell asleep at the roll."
It has been a year of very good times and many challenges. But since this is (sort of) a blog about running, I'll just point out that, if anything, having a baby helped my running.
I PR'd in the mile, the 5k, the 10k and the marathon. I won a 5k, a 6.2k, a 10k and a marathon. And I ran my first two 50k's and my first 50 miler. I think I deserve to fall asleep at the roll, too.
So the obvious question is, what's next? Well, first of all, full time work. But other than that, we've got the major goal of the 7 day trans-alpine run in September. And we're hoping to get into orienteering running. But honestly, the major challenge is going to be to stay in shape while working full time.
Speaking of which, the weight was at 50.4 this morning. 0.3kg from my goal. Some would settle for taking a diuretic and reweighing.

"Children are fascinated by the ordinary and can spend timeless moments watching sunlight play with dust. Their restlessness they learn from you. It is you who are thinking of there when you are here. It is you who thinks of then instead of now. Stop. Let your children become the teachers and you the student" - William Martin
