|Baby G is already 2 months old!|
I feel happy. My journey back to fitness after having a baby has been full of ups and downs, both emotional and physical. I am learning to know, love, respect and appreciate my body in a whole new way.
Sometimes I simply can’t believe it. That this is my life.
One year ago as I was getting ready to turn 34 I had no idea what this year would hold for me. No clue that I would be celebrating my 35th birthday with a new baby in my arms. I think I hoped for things – mainly growth and peace – but I never dreamed this would be my life. That I would be given the gift of this child, this beautiful new soul, to nurture and to love. Wow.
I can’t wait for next week’s race. Not because of a PR (I’m not even planning to “race” – I just want to run) but because I can’t think of a better way to celebrate my birthday than with running. I will run with a heart full of thanks for all the gifts in my life.
