After months and months of anticipation, he is here! Mom, baby and dad are all at home resting and enjoying being a family. I'm so proud of how tenacious and tough Lesley was in the delivery room! Nate weighed in at 7 lbs. 7 oz. Though I am probably a bit biased, I do believe he has the makings of a tough ultrarunner in the future. After only being alive for a little over a day, he barely made a peep when they pricked his heel to do the blood screenings. I wish I could say the same for myself when I had a little heel trouble in HURT, but I was crying like your average newborn at mile 87. If all goes well, son will soon be taking dad to school on the trails of Tantalus! Thanks for being such a strong support to our little family, HURT ohana. We cherish our relationships with each of you.
Matt, Lesley and Nate
