There is no easy or soft way to say this. Chelsey and I are now parents of twins. We are also….well there literally is no word for it. Parents who lost a child. Baby B did not make it.
We live in a time where we are connected to so many people through the virtual world, and we want people to know what has happened to us. Not so that they can feel bad, or avoid contact, or feel awkward. But because we believe in openness, communication and truth.
We are doing the work with every breath to find a way to take the next. Looking for a way IN to this experience, because no matter how much we want to go back and make a different decision, to sacrifice everything to start over with a different outcome – we cannot. This is what is.

The boys are Magnus Maxwell and Spirit B. We hope you get to meet them someday.
We’ll return to this blog as we feel ready, with more training and racing inspiration. Carrying the boys with us in our continuing journey to live our lives at the next level. Spirit has a bit of head start…but he’s already passing on some pretty amazing energy from the other side.
