The Half Truth and the Big News

Chance ponders the meaning of the tiny shoe...

I have been waiting what seems like an eternity to share this news and I have already written four posts (to follow in the next few days) on the subject.  I was not entirely truthful with you, dear readers, about the reason for my decision not to run the 50 mile, but I think once I tell you why, you will understand.  Some news cannot be rushed and this is such news.

I'm going to have a baby! 

I did not want to lie, but I did not want to share the news until everything was checked out and an appropriate amount of time had passed with everything going well and right. I have finally reached that point, being now in my 2nd trimester and it is time to share the news.

I'm going to be a mom! 

So there you have it.  The big news.  Stay tuned for the rest of the story - the whens, the whys, the hows... okay, maybe not the how... but you know what I mean.  My focus on health and fitness is even more important now that I'm eating and drinking and running for two, and so my posts about running, eating, working out and all the things in between will have a slight slant toward the pregnant runner, but I hope you will join me as I experience all of this for the first time!

It is time for a whole new adventure!

  3. congratulations! let me share this little piece of advice from erma bombeck:

    “One thing they never tell you about child raising is that for the rest of your life, at the drop of a hat, you are expected to know your child's name and how old he or she is.”

  10. Well, my precious pearl of a girl, Janie Pearl, I am so very excited that I can't seem to think of much else. My baby is going to have a baby!! I know in my heart that you will be a wonderful mother, just like your sister, and that Jason will be a wonderful father, just like her husband. I have been blessed with two wonderful daughters and two wonderful son-in-laws. But no words can express how blessed I felt when Caroline was born...and then when Caleb was born...and now another little miracle is about to be born and my blessings continue! I am beside myself with thankfulness and joy and anticipation. I love you, all three of you, so very much!!
