Back in March, fresh off the Trials, I talked about what’s next: many more miles in an attempt to make the 2020 Trials. But I also mentioned the possibilities of new challenges and curveballs along the way. And while I certainly can’t anticipate what all of those may be, I was secretly hoping and praying for one in particular.
Since then I’ve been pretty silent about what’s immediately next. But I suspect savvy readers might have figured it out:
I’m in my early thirties, happily married.
We just bought a house that has at least one more bedroom than we need.
My list of races in 2016 is uncharacteristically short, and I haven’t mentioned any upcoming ones…
So yea, you guessed it:
We’re expecting a new addition this spring!
Yes, I’m still running. (Yes, it’s slow.) Yes, I realize my life is absolutely going to change in every conceivable way (and some as yet inconceivable ways). But no, the name—and mission—of this blog won’t change. I’m incredibly inspired by the many mothers of young children who have made it to the Trials, and I’m hoping to join their ranks. Family will always be my number one priority, but we all know I love a good challenge and this is set to be the cutest one of all.
Dreaming big for two,
