Pop two airborne and call me in the morning...

I haven't run since the marathon. Yesterday, I had a lovely massage and I was all ready to get back into the game today. Except now I'm sick....runny nose, sore throat, headache. I'm never sick. Its not that bad and I think I can still nip it so I'm not full blown, have to go to bed, sick. But there's no point in going out for a run today. I have a short trail run planned for Saturday and hopefully I'll be feeling chipper by then.

In other news, we've worked out the child care arrangements so that my wonderful husband, Marc can run the Mt Hood PCT 50k with me! I will admit that this race had me SCARED. Not so much about the distance, but about being out in the wilderness by myself. So I'm ecstatic to have my own personal pacer and it will be a wonderful experience to share.

This is where we'll be on Sunday so Marc can run in the Mt. Hood Scramble, aka The Grandfather of Filth.

too bad about being sick!

YAY!!! that your hubby gets to run the 50k with you, that ROCKS! Johnny and I have yet to run an ultra together; every now and then we can work it out with the grandparents to get a training run in together...
