Kevin: Day 3854
Friday, April 5, 2019 at 8:12PM

Day 3854. So.... I had a baby. And a new streak of daily unbridled attention to Serafina Maria Rapp has taken over my life, sine her arrival on June 1st, 2018. It's been amazing. She is sweet, smart, adorable, you name it; she's got it. Such a ridiculously proud dad. 

As with many things in life there are trade offs. With the baby, my trade off has been taking part in any activities past 7pm on most nights. The streak has survived and I am more thankful for it than ever. Distances have been abysmal, BUT... after acquiring a BOB jogging stroller for $100 on Craigslist 2 weeks ago... there is hope. Serafina loves going out on runs and the weather is getting warmer. Dad is about to get back in shape. 

I've started to do some Facebook Live videos for our wine company and was about to say maybe I'll do some videos for the blog. But... mid type I thought to myself; ehhh... I mean, maybe I'll do a video here and there, but who am I kidding? This is my first blog post since last May! It's April!!!

Oh man. I often say to myself, you can do it. You can get back to blogging everyday. And then, almost a year goes by without blogging. Not without running though! I have one neighbor, Jordan, who doesn't believe me. He loves asking me like a second and third time in a row with his head cocked to the side making semi-extreme eye contact, "Come on... have you really never missed a day???". Yes, Jordan, it's really only 1.5 miles. 

Anyhow, today Serafina and I went for a quick 2.3 miles or so into The Truxton Circle area near 1229 New Jersey Ave NW. Decent trot in a light drizzle.
