Nathaniel “Nate Dawg” Graham Stevens in da’ House!!

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
