I'm siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiick. *whine*

I've been fighting a bit of a cold all week. It wasn't too bad until yesterday when I was a coughing, sniffling, sneezing, congested mess by the end of the work day. After much internal debate, I made the smart decision to call off last night's run. I can't remember the last time I missed a run! It stings, but I need to get healthy.

Today was a scheduled rest day and I took the day off work. I actually feel quite a bit better this morning but I will be taking it easy all day and hoping to be well enough for my race tomorrow and long run Sunday.

Ugh.

Even though you're sick, I just want to say how nice it is to see you with your hair down. :) Love the M&M blankie too. That's what a girl needs when she's sick - meds and a M&M blankie!
