OK… lesson learned. Never take a day off again (I think I’ve said this before…). Didn’t do anything yesterday except for drive 5 hours and go to a meeting. Got in about 11:30 last night and woke up this morning feeling out of sorts. My brain feels kinda foggy, I have a slight headache and my muscles ache. I’m either catching a cold or I’m allergic to driving… hmm… Anyway, of course it is raining today. The weather report says it might be gone by this afternoon, so unless I am feeling really bad by then, I can still go for a run.
I think a lot of how I feel is the fact that I ate poorly yesterday. I had so much going on that I didn’t have time for anything but fast food. Yuch… I am really coming to despise grease. Unfortunately, sometimes I just don’t have time for anything else. And central Missouri isn’t exactly full of fast food salad places.
What is it with me and the curse I put on events? My first organized 5K in 11 years? …it snows… My first organized 10K in 11 years? The forecast calls for a 50% chance of a nice “rain/snow” mix… In the middle of APRIL!? …I give up. I will run, no matter what. But if you are a betting person and like to bet on weird stuff… I’d put my money on the first snow of the season this fall in Kansas City coming on… oh… say October 20? At about 7:00am?
Ahh… well. Off to find Advil…
