Back to the Races

We ran/walked a 5K today. Curt pushed Ian and Eva in the Mountain Buggy Urban Double Stroller. I will be blogging over at Mountain Buggy about our adventures, but this post is more about hitting the Doughnut Plant afterwards.
Warming up:

Curt and the kids had to break away from me, because I wanted to walk more than run. Even with a few stops they had to make along the way for kid issues, they still finished a few minutes ahead of me. As I was run/walking I was thinking about the women in labor that I support. Labor is often compared to a marathon, but you really can sleep during labor or go limp and your body will keep working. Not so, with running. Still, as I was having this thought, I passed a mom telling her kids,"If you would just concentrate on your breathing it wouldn't hurt so much." So, I tried to focus on breathing and it did help. I ran during the final stretch. Here I am after coming across the finish line.

Celebrating our effort at Doughnut Plant afterwards.

I really enjoy your blog- I found it when we were still back home in the States (haven't even been here in Korea a week yet). :) Thanks for the great info! I had my 2 month old naturally at a birth center in Virginia, with a great doula, such an empowering experience!

If you have another child, check out Dr. Chung at the MediFlower Clinic. He is awesome. You can also do homebirth. If you are military, you can get a referral from Tricare.

Eva has such a fantastic wardrobe of fall colors! The weather looked yucky, hope it was just dreary and not cold!

Hello! It was great meeting you yesterday at the Veterans' Day ceremony. You may/may not remember me since you were still a bit groggy from attending a birth the night before, but I look forward to meeting up for lunch and getting to know you! And I also love your blog!

Thanks, Rosa! I definitely remember you and would love to do lunch soon. Your translation offer is really helpful and needed. Thanks so much!
