Under the weather

YUCK - I have come down with a cold and sore throat.  I am sure that traveling last week had everything to do with it.  I swear that I can usually fight a cold off at the first sign - but it was hard to fight this one.  I didn't get home until 11pm Wednesday - spent a little time unpacking essentials - and then had to be to work at 7:30 am and was at a meeting outside the office for most of the day.  With the time change - and flying - I was exhausted!   Arggggggg! 

Last night I had the opportunity to host some of my staff at a UW Badger hockey game against Minn Duluth.  My employer has a suite that includes food and beverages - it is a lot of fun - it would have been better if the Badgers would have pulled out an overtime win - but that didn't happen.  :-( 

As a result of having a cold and sore throat - there was absolutely no way I was going to run this morning.  I read about others running while feeling horrible - but i just can't do it.  Probably has more to do with my age than anything else.  :-( 

I am running a 10k on Thursday morning - so I need to get a couple of good runs in this week.  I might take a couple of afternoons off, which will make it easier to get a long run in during daylight.  Speaking of afternoons off - I still have 18 days of vacation to take before the end of Feb.  Sounds wonderful - but I am really busy and it gets harder and harder to find time to take off.  I WILL BE TAKING THE FIRST WEEK OF JAN OFF FOR A SKI TRIP!  Yahoo

We are watching the Packers blow out the Vikings - and waiting for them to pull Favre!  It is a great day to sip on hot tea and watch football. 


  1. Oh! Hope you're on the mend quickly. And YAY for a week-long ski trip... fantastic!

  2. Hope you feel better soon! The ski trip sounds like a lot of fun!

  3. Hope you feel better soon. I'll look for you tomorrow at the BD, but it'll probably be packed. Have a Happy Thanksgiving. The ski trip sounds awesome!

  4. hope you're feeling better and have a great turkey day!!!! good luck at berbee derby -- you are so brave! i did it one year and nearly froze to death. hope it makes you run fast! :-)
