I am NOT getting sick!!!

If I yell it loud enough will any malevolent bugs/bacteria get the hint and get out of Dodge?  Yeah, I didn't think so.

Maybe it's not anything...probably just seasonal allergies kicking in.  One of my running gal pals who lives 10 minutes away is also dealing with BAD allergies, so I'm going to assume the best until proven otherwise.  Thank [insert deity of choice _____ ] for Allegra, Flonase, Advair, and Albuterol.  Right now I just have a raspy throat that's a bit raw.  DH had this sort of thing over a week ago.  Could a virus really hang around that long?  His malady only lasted a couple of days, so if I were to have come down with something like that I could deal with it.  It shouldn't have any effect on race day...now a mere SIX days away! *swoons*

Current forecast for race day... 50º/67º, 10% chance precip.  Still pretty much holding steady, but this is the Great Lakes region...that could (and probably will) change drastically.  I'm still prepared for the potential of either blizzard or oppressive heatwave.


  1. Good luck kicking the allergies...i'm pretty sure it's just that...very common with the sudden change in weather.

    But just in case, get plenty of sleep, water, and rest this week. Good luck in six days!

  2. Thanks so much for the well wishes. I think it is just allergies, as my throat isn't bothering me now. Luckily I have 2 great guys who let me sleep-in and nap whenever possible, too.


  3. There's definitely something going around over here on the other side of "The Lake", so let's hope it is allergies. The sore throat being gone is a good sign.

    Thanks for your comment on my blog. It really helped me realize that the dress is bigger on me now, and the hubby agreed with you, too.

    Have a good race this week! As for the weather, like you said, expect anything. :-\
