First Quarter Progress Report
|James using the treadmill in his own way!|
The really crazy part is last year I felt confident that I would finish Leadville. I felt great and like my training was going really well. It's strange to have a slightly different perspective on that now. I still am confident I will be ready for my races this summer. I need a 30+ mile run in the next week or two, but otherwise I'm sitting pretty well. I also really need to get my butt in gear and start doing hill workouts. I definitely feel good going into the season this year. I've been putting in the training and I'm excited to see if it will pay off.

It's hard to believe how much James has progressed in the past three months as well. His communication has come so far. It makes me feel good that I made the right decision to drive out to Children's once a week for private speech therapy. It's been a challenge to lose nearly half a day each week with all the driving, but he has finally caught on to the conception of communication, learned some signs with consistency and is babbling away telling his own tales of craziness...not to mention calling Dan "dada" and even "dad" once in awhile. The kid's growing up and becoming a little boy, one that is often full of piss and vinegar as toddler boys so often are!
