Happy New Year!

Welcome to 2013!  The holidays are winding down...  Off season is in full swing for triathletes and marathon season is just starting up.

With a new born my half marathon season will start later than it normally does.  Also, my tri season will  probably start a little later as I work on getting back into it all after having a baby.  What a journey motherhood has been so far!  I'm really enjoying it!  I opted for an unmedicated home birth.  I figured since I have successfully completed two full Ironman races I could go through labor without any pain meds.  From what I had heard and read about labor I figured it would be like an iron distance race... an endurance event.  It was more rewarding than an IM because of the wonderful little bundle of joy I received but so satisfying knowing I endured labor without any drugs.  Such a sense or accomplishment.  My labor was quick and it was more like an olympic or sprint tri than an iron distance tri.  I can take that labor experience and apply it to my future racing and training.  I'm hoping the example my husband and I set for our daughter rubs off and she enjoys triathlons (or any of the one sports involved) as much as we do!!

I hope you all had a wonderful 2012 and 2013 brings much joy and fitness to you!!

Happy training and off season relaxing!
