My Baby is Back

Everything is back to normal again after DJ returned from her camp. She arrived just after 2pm yesterday and you can imagine how happy I am. So glad she is safe, enjoyed it and with no incidents. Picture above the morning before the camp before Kim went to drop her off.

I can see that she enjoyed it as she was talking not stop the whole afternoon. The picture is their school group but I believe they were four schools in total at the camp.

Not that the house was quiet as Kim volunteered to look after her sisters 5 week old baby to give her sister a little break just to relax after the birth of her child.

If we ever thought of getting DJ a brother or sister, I can tell you that it is definitely not gonna happen after our guest this weekend. Boy I forgot how hard work a baby is.

DJ's dog, Dolly was also sad the whole weekend and wasn't in the mood for playing and just ignored us all.

With no training on my schedule yesterday I decided to have a Fish BBQ. I invited my mother and sister but warned them beforehand that I can BBQ meat to perfection but not fish. I think I can count the times I had fish on the grill on one hand.

We love fish but that is Kim's department in the kitchen. At the end of the day I think it turned out pretty well and everyone enjoyed it. Kim's sister and her husband also joined us when they came to pick up their child.

This week it is running interval time as it was interval time on the bike last week. Intervals are not easy but add some biking, swimming and gym sessions and it can become really hard.

I am really looking forward to my race next weekend. Not that it is a "A" race and with me only doing a semi taper I think it is really going to be hard. I think the main reason is that it will be my first proper race in more than five months, can't wait!


  1. Wow I can't believe it's been 5 months since your last race. I will look forward to hearing how it goes.

    I'm glad DJ is back, healthy and happy!!

  2. You must be so happy to have DJ back! Dolly must be happy too!

    Good luck in your upcoming race!! As my season comes to a close, your season begins!

  3. Glad DJ had a great time, she looks pretty darn happy in the picture. Makes me wish I was a kid again.


  4. I love fish on a grille. I used to catch them off our dock and have them cleaned and on the grille within 10 minutes. So good.

    That was awfully nice of you guys to take the newborn. Good luck at your race!!! I will live through you now as our season is coming to an end.

  5. First race, new coaching, post offseason, good luck!

  6. Always good when they get back home safe and without any incidents. Another baby…not for me thank you! Happy training!

    Yes can't believe it myself. did do a duathlon during winter but that was small event.


    Thanks, yes I am so happy DJ is safe and sound. Fitness not yet up where it should be but for a first race of the season I just wanna enjoy it. Feel sorry for you and my other friends up north with winter on it's way

    Yes she was so happy and had that satisfied look on her face all evening

    I also love fish but growing up and now living not close to waters we don't do it often and I don't have patience so wait for fish to bite

    Thanks will have some fun next Sunday

    Thanks, yes all new, motivated and ready. Now just waiting for the start

    Agree, after this weekend any thoughts went straight out the window regarding a new born in the house
