I'm getting an Ironman tattoo!

About a year after my first was born, I ran a marathon despite stopping training the last 6 weeks due to shin splints. I ran with the mantra "I survived a 7 hour labor, I know I can run for at least 7 hours if I have to." My time was 6 hours 45 minutes.

Well, my friends, on Sunday around 2pm, little Graham joined us after 21 hours of natural labor. He is beautiful and healthy and was well worth the challenge. I look forward to sharing tales about our upcoming adventures. Thanks for the encouragement this entire pregnancy.

I will be posting my birth story on my blog in the next few days.

Yeah! Good going, Crumbs. Can't wait to hear more -- about Graham (my uncle's name) and your return to running.

Congratulations -- I hope to be not too far behind you in both the delivery department and the return-to-running scene! Looking forward to your posts (& pictures?).
