Running Group

Turns out in my very small town there is a running group started up for 0-5km in 8 weeks. Saturday was my first sesson. This is perfect for me! 3 times a week. 2 minutes down the road from my house. We actually run by my house! Did 2 miles. Run 3 minutes and walk 2 minutes. I felt great. So happy to be back at it :)

My darling little man has colic - BAD. No sleeping ever for me. It is so frustrating. We see the dr Monday for his 6 week check up but tonight for example he cried and fussed for 7 hours. Please pray for us!

Next Week

Next week I will have a 6 week old and next week I am starting to run again. I am actually where I started weight wise when I started this running journey. I have 35-40lbs to lose except this time its in different spots and I imagine it will be a lot harder. I think the lack of sleep and demands of breastfeeding are going to make it quite a challenge but I am up for it. First race is May 29th :)

4 weeks old

I am just over 4 weeks post c section and with our new little man. He has been home 21 days now. I have another 2 weeks before I can think about exercise again. I didn't really know the magnitude of a c section until I had one. I had big plans for myself but I have definitely adjusted them now. I hope to train for a half in the fall. I think that's doable since I only trained for 10 weeks for the half last time - my first ever. For right now I spend a lot of time staring at my beautiful gift from God :)

Running in the path of His command

It started by obeying a command and what a journey it has been. Dealing with a sick baby has by far been our biggest test of faith both personally and as a couple. The most comforting thing was knowing that God was with him and would never leave him. God was in control the entire 10 days and He showed up in a mighty way to heal him. For this we give Him all the honour and praise. It is amazing how God orchestrated such an amazing experience. He showed up and answered prayers and provided needs over and over again. We stood in awe. How great is our God!
