wow. really?

i was going to post an entry today about the "taper crazies" and about how all those little niggles and sickies lurking are in our minds ... and then i got sick.

i still believe all the things i wrote and i'll post it later when i'm in a better humor. for now i need to sleep, drink massive amounts of water, take my antibiotics and hope that a) they kick this sinus and ear infection out quick and b) that the antibiotics don't leave me as fatigued as usual.

my coach asked if there was another marathon in a week or two that i could do. she didn't want to see all this fitness go to waste if i am not able to run on sunday. thing is ... it's not about a marathon, it's about this marathon. it's special. i'm invested. i'm attached. i. want. to. do. it.

think strong, healthy thoughts for me ... i have two and half days to get healthy!!

Oh Cat - HANG IN THERE!!!!!

I swear - there is something going around... just about everyone that I know has the sniffles or is fighting something off. I'm SO sorry - just be strong, be tough - think great vibes! And I'll send all the healthy vibes your way...(minus the crud that I've got, of course!).

Plenty of fluid...lots of citrus....I always do tea with a little bit of sugar. Also - zinc and ecchinatia (spelling?).

Hugs to you - you are a TOUGH athlete, you can get this done, I know it!

I love how you are invested in this home town race. If anyone can roll with the punches, you can.
