I am a Daddy!

I am delighted to announce the arrival of our beautiful daughter to the running world:

Alivia Paige
Born April 29, 2008 at 6:52 PM CDT
7 lbs - 8 oz
21 inches long

Liv and Mom just arrived home from the hospital today. Though just celebrating her 2-day anniversary into the world, she has long, athletic running legs.


Her dad is hopeful that he can talk her into joining him for his 50th marathon in 50 states in circa the year 2026. Until then, we'll get her trained up for the baby jogger over the next year.
