Greetings from the other side

Too funny that on May 3, I wrote “I must be especially virtuous these days,” referencing that Yoda’s due date was April 28, and as of the afternoon of May 3, I was still Yoda-less.


Little did I know that, after my Technical Writing class that evening, I would go home and go into labor.


Hence, my… um…. fourteen-week delay in blogging 🙂


Suffice it to say that I’ve ruminated a good amount in the past three-and-a-half-ish months, and of the fourteen weeks since little Alice’s birth (yes, Yoda was a Yolanda!), I’ve been running since I got the all-clear at my six-week postpartum check-up.  I have tried to be a bit conservative in my amateur comeback, but overall, I actually have been pretty pleased with how things have progressed.  At about twelve weeks postpartum, I did my first race, a little 5k back in Ohio, and I won my age group, which was a great confidence booster.  I’ve since registered for a 5 mile race, also back in Ohio, for Labor Day Monday, and since this will be my first time racing this distance, it’s an automatic PR.  Score.


More to come!

What'cha thinkin?
