I’m actually surprised it’s taken me this long to fall ill this year. I work with preschoolers and school aged kids four days a week. They aren’t known for having the best hygiene. And, even when they’re taught to cough into their elbow, germs still spread.
So here I am, on the day I planned to run thirteen miles, curled up on the couch under a blanket. I’ve got a sore throat, lots of drainage and congestion, and a decent cough. I’m hoping that taking the night off will bolster me up for the week to come.
I still want to run those thirteen miles. Plus we need to get the house cleaned up for our visitor. Plus I want to have fun while she’s here. Time to cuddle, take my zinc, and take it easy.
