When you’re having fun!
It’s been a year and a half since my last blog post. I didn’t intend to take that long of a break, but it’s been a very busy year and half. Here’s the quick recap:
I ran the Twin Cities Marathon! Eight years after getting a DNF for crossing the finish line 5 minutes after the time cut-off, I finally came back and officially finished this marathon. I didn’t realize how much I needed to do this until I crossed that finish line. I’m glad I ran this marathon, but I decided I didn’t want to do another one anytime soon. A lot of people complete a marathon and immediately swear them off, only to revisit doing another one later. I don’t think I’m one of those people.
We got married! Troy and I were married on October 25, 2014 in Zion National Park. It was one of the best days of our lives, and we enjoyed sharing it with our friends and family. Married life has been great, like, really great. I honestly can’t imagine someone more perfect for me than Troy, and I’m so glad that we get to spend the rest of our lives together.
We had a baby! Our son, Wyatt, was born on September 5, 2015. Troy and I knew we wanted to start a family right away, and we feel so lucky that we were able to do that. Becoming parents has been exciting, anxiety-inducing, nerve wracking, exhausting, challenging, and oh so rewarding. There will be more posts on this subject, obviously, but for now I’ll leave it at: we love this little guy to pieces.
Lots of big and fun things happened in the last year and half! I kept thinking about coming back to this blog, I had plenty I wanted to talk about, but the time didn’t feel right until now. In the past I used this blog to document my running, training, and sometimes my trips. While I still run and train, the focus of this blog will shift to reflect more than just my fitness. I plan to write about my health goals and journey (I have significant baby weight I want to lose), but I also want to write about my life as a wife and parent.
That’s the long and short of it!
