Why is it that everytime I get close to a race that’s important to me EVERYONE around me is sick?!?! The folks in the office are sick…almost ALL of them, my nephew is sick, and last night my husband tells me he is sick, AFTER I gave him a quick kiss. He said, “uh-oh…forgot to tell you I’m getting sick. I have a sore throat.” WHAT?????!!!! Are you kidding me?! Couldn’t tell me this BEFORE you gave me your germs?
If my cacluations are correct, there’s a three day incubation period, which means I should start to feel it around Friday. Then it’ll take me a week to 10 days to get over it. This in turn means, I’ll be too sick to get my last runs in, I won’t eat right, and I’ll be exhusted for the Marine Corps Marathon.
Everywhere I go, someone is hacking without covering their mouth or sneezing and contaminating my air. I need a plastic bubble that I can hide in until race day so that I can stay healthy.
Oh God…I just sneezed! Here we go… <sigh>
