Great Timing

I woke up this morning with a sore throat. I felt the scratchiness between snooze and being awake and fully realizing what that really meant.

I have been so, so, so fortunate to be "safe" from the ailments that have occurred around me. For months, people in around me have gotten something and yet, I seem to get around it.

And yet now, I feel that scratchiness, which has gradually worsened throughout the day. And that yucky "i-don't-want-to-eat-a-thing" feeling comes and goes and as I type this out, the sniffles make an appearance.

This, of course, is the best time to get sick because I am merely three days away from my big race. And I always worry about this time of the year, with this race.

But I'm going to do something: rest, drink fluids that, sadly, will not include wine, and I even made a stop at Whole Foods for some echinacea, as recommended by one of my facebook pals.

Here's hoping for a fast recovery for a great race on Sunday...

  1. Ugh, I had the funk last weekend while my in-laws were visiting. I think they caught it, too. Maddie has it now. No fun. Hope the echinacea works for you!
