Sweet Child of Mine

I've heard it said that having a baby is completely worth all the pain of labor. I've seen quite a few baby deliveries in my time (thank you Uganda) and you know that something has to keep bringing women back for more, because it sure isn't the labor part!

But once they see their babies and their hard work, they seem to forget the pain and continue to fall in love with their new baby.

Or at least, they come to realize that the outcome far outweighs the pain.

Well my friends...if we continue on with this train of thought, i'm heading for baby number 2.

Baby one was named Big Cottonwood
And number two is a smooth sounding Sand Hollow

That is right, time to begin the training for my second marathon.
Just in time to start training because all my training for the last one is officially gone... :(
and the memories of the pain and frustration have faded.

Although looking at this picture brings it back a little bit...

Oh well, because here I go again.

Baby #2 coming March 29, 2014


  1. Why did this make me want to sign up for this marathon too? I'm all ready signed up for salt lake in April. What is wrong with me? Haha. But in all seriousness, let's run a marathon together sometime. Or at least train together.

    1. Sign ups were only $30 on black friday!! It totally convinced me to do it. It is a suuuuuper small marathon though! You'll love SLC as your first one! But I agree, some long runs together are in our future, I can see it now!

  2. You convince me that I want to be you when I grow up over and over again.... but it never happens.

    1. You reallllly don't want that. Promise. This world wouldn't know what to do with two of me and no Ellie. I think it would burn up or something.
