Thanks to everyone for the kind emails and comments on the birth of my daughter. Several folks have asked for photos and more details...so here goes:
Danica Agnes Maus (we call her Dani)
9lbs. 5oz. and 21" long
It was by far the most intense experience of my life. The only thing I can even compare it to is the final laps of a long, hard crit...with a lap counter that seemed to never budge.
... and like racing, the reward far outweighs the effort...don't you think?
