Baby blues...

A big reason for my continued interest in and practice of running is my wife. We recently had a baby and we're first time parents. If you talk to people who had babies in the past, they always say things like it's the experience of your life, your life will change forever, you're gonna have a wonderful time etc. What they don't tell you is: you will get only 2 hours of sleep in a stretch and that if you're lucky, the baby will eat, cry and poop all the time, and guess what they don't come with an "off" switch. Don't get me wrong I love my baby and do my bit in taking care of her but only a woman can have the kind of patience that it requires to take care of these little miracles. Not a day goes by when I'm not amazed by her reservoir of patience. I've never seen her getting pissed at me, even when she has been awake almost the whole night, when I'm off to running first thing in the morning. Although it doesn't do any justice to how I feel but here is a thank you to her for being a part of my life.

Preparing for the first 10K

I never thought I'd ever take up running. My interest in it started about a year ago. The main motivation was keeping fit and weight control, specially now that I'm not getting any younger :)

And now a year after, it has become almost a non-negotiable part of my day. Getting up at 5:00 AM, putting on the gears and heading out for running, when the most of the rest of the world is sleeping, takes a lot of discipline and mental toughness. I feel good about it. Although I have to admit I've not really been 100% regular.

I recently signed up for a 10K race that is held annually in Leesburg, VA. Since it's my first one, I'm looking forward to it. I would like to concentrate on finishing it strong. I'm not planning to set a time goal or personal record (PR) but I think I can complete it within an hour. Will see how it goes.

Lance Armstrong is my hero so I would like to finish this post with two words. Live strong.
