and her name is Ella. I'm in love. I would like to get back to activity, but this significant anemia may hold me back longer than I thought. Of course I'm a little dissapointed, but I'm doing all I can to build my hematocrit back into normal ranges and we'll get there when we get there. Guess there's a reason I didn't have a race schedule for 2012 set in stone.
I really am ok with it though. I mean I don't love the headaches and quick fatigue and looking like a ghost, but I would do it again in a heartbeat of course for this sweet little girl of mine. The other kids adore her and it's been so much more rewarding as a mother than ever to watch them love her.
So maybe I'll start working on pulling my core back together in the next few weeks, maybe a little weight training at home, yoga, pilates, I don't know. Won't swim bike run for a while. Just plan on getting healthy and enjoying the best finisher prize ever
