Missed a few runs last week. But, I've got a good reason... (Read 336 times)

    Our daughter, Sidney Catherine Patrick was born on Wed Feb 14, 2007 (Valentine's Day), on what can only be described as the worst snow storm to hit the greater Toronto area this year. She came wailing into the world, all 5 lbs, 6 oz of her, at 11:01 a.m. Mum and Dad were quite surprised, as she was not expected until Mar 17 (St. Patrick's Day), but are thrilled nevertheless. Both mum and babe are doing great. Sid 'the kid' has skinny little legs, but is already showing promise as a distance runner. Thought I'd share...

      Dave, that's awesome! Congrats to you all! Feb. is the best month to be born in, which she obviously knew in-utero. I predict a genius child! Big grin k

      • Chemo

      • Chemo-Radiation

      • Surgery

      • Return to kicking my own ass by 2018


      She was not strong. She was valiant. Radiant. Brave and broken. The beauty she discovered in the aftermath was unparalleled to anything she had known before, because it had come at such a cost.

        Congratulations! She looks like a cute little runner. Wink And hey, if you've got to choose between St. Patty's day and Valentine's day, why not go for love. Now get a run in when you can. . .
          Congratulations! What a cutie!

            Now this is the best excuse for not running I have ever heard of. Congratulations! Share some pictures with us. Ewa

                Congratulations!!!! Definetly the best reason to miss some runs!

                  Congratulations on a new Valentine! Nothing like a new baby in the house. I remember it as very peaceful.
                  Run like you are on fire! 5K goal 24:00 or less (PR 24:34) 10K goal 50:00 or less (PR 52:45) HM goal 1:55:00 or less (PR 2:03:02) Marathon Goal...Less than my PR (PR 4:33:23)
                    Congratulations, Dave! We have a 9 month old little boy who arrived 5 days before my first 10k (the first time I'd even run the distance let alone raced it!). As I'm sure you agree, it is (the birth not the 10k) the most unbelievable experience! All the best with the family and keeping the training going around all that will be filling your time. Cheers, FC
                      Thanks all. We're having a blast. Managed to get my long run in this morning. It was -13C (-21C with the wind chill), but an otherwise gorgeous, sunny day. I dragged my ass to the end, but it is done. Next week: Chilly Half Marathon in Burlington, ON (Canada) - only my second Half. Using this as a tune-up for a 30K race at the end of March (Around the Bay in Hamilton, ON). Send me good vibes and best wishes for some sleep this week. These 3 a.m. feedings are a killer! Hats off to the Missus. She's the true Star in our house!
