Marathon vs. Baby!!! The Showdown

Coach here... It has been a long weekend and start to this next week. I ran the Seattle Rock-N-Roll marathon this last weekend and we were on high alert with the baby the whole time. I was a bundle of nerves the whole time worried that Tressa would go into labor while I was running or the night before the race. I was sure either one of those was going to happen. It didn't help that Tressa kept telling me that she was having contractions. Personally, I think she was trying to mess with me. We made it past the night before with some sleep and I made it to the starting line with no baby yet.

I made it through the marathon with some hiccups... a full race report is forthcoming. We even made it home and made it through one full recovery day. Then last night at about 2AM Tressa's water broke and we are now in the hospital getting all hooked up to IV's and all that good stuff. Contractions haven't started yet so they are drugging her up to get those going, with the epidural to follow. We are hoping we can get this baby out soon (my guess was 4:10pm, she better hustle if she's going to make me right).

I'll have more to say later about my first marathon and possibly some new baby pictures!
