I congratulate you on your new offspring. And I'm in a position to know how it feels, with 7 kids and almost 8 grandkids (the 8th will be born next week).
Running is such a wonderful family acitivity. I ran for many years with one of my daughters (next to the youngest child). Then another daughter took it up. She ran cross country in high school; I loved going to her meets. Now two of my sons are regular runners; one ran a marathon with me last October and is signed up to run next October; the other will run his first marathon with me in two weeks, and is also signed up for the October marathon.
I cherish the time I've spent running with my kids. I'm sure you have, and will, also!
BTW, thanks for the encouragement in my quest to BQ. Yes, indeed, I've put lots of fitness in the bank (as per your rowing story), and plan to withdraw it in two weeks and get that BQ. I'm now psyched and confident.
