No sympathy pregnancy this time

I tried this a while back. Actually, my lovely wife and I tried this a while back. We’d decided to do the Disney Marathon in 2000, provided we survived Y2K. We also decided to try having a kid, too. Guess which one was easier?

I continued training until about mid-October and the 15-16 mile point, at which point I let weather get the best of me, and committed to having a sympathy pregnancy (gaining weight, being moody, etc).

This time – Well, this time I do it. We’re 2 kids to the good, and I’m 20 or so pounds to the heavy. Plus, my little bro has run two in the interm. So I’m set for the Mystic Places Marathon in October.
