The good news is, I don't completely have the flu.

The bad news is, I don't completely have the flu.

My boss I'm sure was not thrilled that I followed up two days of birthday vacation almost immediately with two days of sick leave, but what can you do.  Sore throat, wicked sinus headache, fever, chills, and aches.  I won't come in with stuff like that, in part because I hate it when other people do and then I catch whatever they've got. 

I'm starting to feel better although my sinuses keep choking me.  Very happy tomorrow is the weekend so I can sleep another 20-plus hours.  Overall, I guess it's a good thing I was healthy enough thanks to running that whatever bugs have been stalking me never fully got a grip. 

Once I feel up to it, I'll be posting about my fabulous birthday and the not so fabulous (for me, at least) Runaway Pumpkin Half.  I never wanted to drop out in the middle of a race so badly in my life and it was not the way I wanted to end my 2011 race career.  Not sure what I'll do about the latter, I need to get healthy again first.

  1. Aw, you poor thing. I used to think I had to go to work, even with a fever. Not anymore, the last time it hit 101, I couldn't even think straight. Get better!

  2. Well the Pumpkin may not have been the most fabulous race for you .... but those tots were freaking DELICIOUS!!! I've thought about them every single day and keep talking about them. No joke. I tried to make my own. They didn't hold a candle to the birthday tots.

    Get better super soon!
