Great Email Received

Five days of no running is making me crazy. The flu has hit our house and zapped all of the energy out of us. Scott and I even did rock, paper, scissors to figure out who was going to do school pickup… I lost.

Last night I did manage to do a 30 minute Yoga session at home. I was so sick of lying around and actually felt pretty good once I completed it. Today I woke up and am convincing my body that I am feeling better. Just say it over and over and it just might work. With this weekends 22 miler approaching I really need to get my feet moving. Really overall I don’t feel near as rotten as I did. Scott on the other hand has been in bed for 5 days. Poor guy.

I checked my emails this morning to find a new Ultra series introduced in South Carolina. If this hits your race target area it is more than worth checking out. All trails and very low entry fees apply. Terry Hayes really knows how to put these events on!! Aid stations are well stocked and there are no time limits.

I know something you don't know...yet. :-)

We've been a bit under the weather this week, but it sounds like you guys got hit head-on with some yucky funk. Hope everyone is cleared up soon, and don't push it too hard this weekend if you aren't back up to good health. I would hate to see you in bed for 2 weeks.
