Happy 1 Year!
We have a 3 story 100+ year old house. The stairs are super steep and dangerous too. I have to carry them up and down the stairs all day or stand behind them as they crawl up or down.

Thank goodness for Eon. He is my 3rd eyeball. He has saved me from disaster many a time. He will inform me when they find some small object or when trouble is a brewing.
My training has taken a back seat for a while. We do not hire childcare so my days of running hard are limited. Ray works 12 hr days and by the time he gets home I am tired. I try to have all 3 in bed by 8:30pm so if I don't fall asleep by then I have an hour or so to relax. In the mornings, after breakfast I run on the treadmill while all 3 play around. I really don't have time to do anything but a short run and a few exercises. This is not going to get me in the shape I was in a few years ago though. I am also severly sleep deprived since they wake up each ~3+ times a night. I know it will get much easier as soon as they are ~3 years old. Until then I am happy to be a little slower and I would not change a thing.
I did race Mt Sentinel Hill Climb http://www.runnersedgemt.com/events/hillclimb/ again. I was 2 min faster than 2010 but it was a different course. However I was very close to my same mark up to the M (~7 min 55 sec's compared to 7 min 40 sec's in 2010) so I am happy that my hill racing is improving!
My 2013 goal is to run faster in every race. My next race will likely be in March. Until then cheers,
