Running Through a Fulfilled Life

Back from a Long Absence

10 Comments

My goodness, my last posting was back in July.  Usually long absences in the blog world are either due to 1) flat out quitting, 2) an injury, 3) major life changes.  Mine can be classified under #3.  We went on a family vacation at the beginning of July to the Outer Banks.  It was wonderful, things were all “Electric Beach-like” with peace, love and sand.

Then Baby J…or should I say, Toddler J, managed to turn 2 and we had to of course provide the obligatory celebration there.

We got his 2 year old photo shoot done.  Child is such a toddler model it’s not even funny, if he could rub some of his photogenic-ness off on me that would be super appreciated.

After pictures, it was time for the obligatory “1st Hair Cut” in order to make sure people at the grocery store quit telling me I had a beautiful daughter.

and then…we finally let everyone know about what our next and latest adventure will be.  The adventure that is the biggest reason that I haven’t run a race since June.  And the reason I inserted this way down at the end of this post to make sure you sufficiently read.

Our family of 3 is going to be growing by 1 in March!  Baby Mason #2 will be debuting in 2017 and Toddler J will be a big brother.

I am currently 17 weeks along and plan on doing a week-by-week belly blog again, so be prepared for a little bit too much pregnancy talk and some running talk.  I’ve still been running again, although I have been keeping things short (between 2-4 miles per run) and do have some plans for a few races before the end of the year.  Then that’ll probably be it on the racing front until Summer.

  1. Congrats. How exciting! I can’t get over those red curls. Too cute!

  2. I was going to ask if you were going to give baby bump updates. I haven’t seen enough belly pics yet!

  3. Congratulations on the baby bump! I agree that’s a good reason for an absence from the blogging world and the racing world ;). Glad you are still getting some runs in with all the craziness and busy-ness of family life!

  4. Ah! All great reasons to be off the radar. Congratulations!
