Introducing Theo Edmond Stellingwerff

It’s been a pretty crazy last couple of months with some major, but amazing, life changes. On June 29 we welcomed our son Theo (pronounced TA-O) into the world. He was tiny (5lbs12oz), but wide-eyed and super determined, already holding his head up and standing on our lap within a few weeks. I think we’re in for it!
Although there have been many challenging moments, I feel like being an endurance athlete has really helped me put things into perspective. Yes, I’ve been majorly sleep deprived with little Theo, but it doesn’t feel much different than running 130km a week at altitude or racing an all out 1500m race after flying across the world: neither are ideal, but you get through it! I’ve also learned to prioritize and be more efficient with my time.
So, after 8 weeks I feel like I’m finally coming up for air and getting into a routine. I’ve been able to start training again, which has been a humbling experience, but I'm getting fitter each week. I’ll talk more about my return to training in my next Canadian Running Magazine blog out soon.
