the eric update - day 267: spring training!

i've long suspected that kris and i would know when life was returning to "normal" when we found ourselves making the time to start running again. and today we found ourselves doing just that.

it's hard to believe it's been almost a year since i inexplicably stopped posting about how training was going for my third marathon ( mundane reasons really, we decided that making a trek to duluth, minnesota for grandma's marathon just wasn't going to be feasible given the fact that both kris and diane were pregnant at the time ).

we only ran a mile today, but that's o.k. because we started from much more humble beginnings and managed to scratch out several marathons in short order.

actually we both felt like we could have easily run at least 2 miles, but the jogging stroller kept veering to the left, making it irritatingly difficult to concentrate on running. and, even without the swerving, i think running with a stroller is a little more challenging that i had anticipated. hopefully we can get all the kinks worked out, because i think it'd be big fun to take odin out on long runs.

we're registered for the riverbank run, but trying to ramp up to 15 miles in a month might be a bit optimistic. and dangerous. but hey - you never know.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
