Hope everyone is fit and well
Life is getting a little more settled here at the Baugh household, with Emma sleeping better and Lianne and I starting to get by with less caffeine and sugar. It is amazing how quickly things change every day with a newborn and it is a really enjoyable time seeing Emma grow more alert and engaged by the moment.
As things have settled, we have started some planning for 2012. The biggest change will be shorter trips overseas. With Sebastian due to start school, the family will stay at home and my overseas campaigns will only be for major championships. Therefore, I am unfortunately going to miss racing in my second home of the “Basque country” for at least the first part of next season. I have confirmed racing in one French Grand Prix with Metz Triathlon Club and then at the European Championships in Holland on April 29th. Thereafter, it will be back to Perth for some running events and Australian Duathlon Series and then a return to Europe later in the year for the World Championships in Nancy, France.
Training is starting to progress well and I am hopeful that some good results will come through after a block at altitude in the new year.
I would like to take the opportunity to thank my family, sponsors, patrons, supporters and friends and wish you all the very best for the festive season and the year to come.
