I would like to start this post by welcoming my little lion man to the world. Tristan Alexander Olson was born on August 5th at 2:00pm and weighed in at 6.05 lbs and 19 inches long. What a big dude! We are so completely in love with him and are excited to see how this huge blessing to our lives makes life even more grand!
The week before the birth we took a little video of me experiencing running pregnant. I know this in no way lets me know what my wife and many others go through as a human develops in their belly, but i’m sure you’ll be entertained to watch me run around with a 17 lbs watermelon duct taped to my belly…Enjoy!
He has now joined our lives and every moment is pure bliss! We are looking forward to showing him this great world and exploring our back yard/trails. We are already taking him on little walks out on the trails and look forward to testing out our new BOB Revolution stroller with our car adapter for our Britax car seat. Britax and BOB have been kind enough to set us up with all of their finest gear so he can enjoy the trails and enjoy nature as soon as it is healthy for him. My wife and i spend countless hours exploring nature and i hope to instill this love i have for momma earth with him.
Testing out the baby carrier with my little cougar friend.
Bringing him safely home!

Training after WS
After WS i took it nice and easy and just enjoyed running in my backyard mountains. It’s nice to take time and do what i love, just run. I got my mileage back up to 100 or so before Tristan arrived.
With all this excitement it has been tricky to get tons of training in for Waldo 100k this coming weekend and Run Rabbit Run 100m in September, but i’ll make it work. My Mother and Father in-law have been here to help a little this past week which has given me some time to get a little bit of sleep and a few runs in. I’m anticipating some fun times running with friends in the woods and i look forward to getting my racing legs firing again.
After the Run Rabbit Run we’ll be putting on our RD’ing hats and finishing logistics for our race, the Enchanted Forest Wine Run Half-Marathon and 5K! Tristan will be there to root everyone on. So if you’d like to meet him, enjoy some good food and wine and dance the day away with some bluegrass, come and check out our race which is September 29th!
