    Kennyd and I both passed the bunny last week -- and now we are both sick. Coincidence...? Dead

    She was not strong. She was valiant. Radiant. Brave and broken. The beauty she discovered in the aftermath was unparalleled to anything she had known before, because it had come at such a cost.

      I know how you feel!!! I just posted on the "Badger" user group complaining that the weather is killing me. I do my longest, long runs every other week and I've done the past two with the temps in the mid 30's with a 20 mph wind blowing in my face. The thing is I NEVER get sick and haven't even had a cold in years, but after each run I've been sick. The first time it was a sore throat, congestion - typical stuff and just when I was feeling better I ran again and feel like hell.

        Coincidence? I think not. It is just much easier than thinking I went to far, rested to little, drank a beer or two too many.......Etc. We went from 70 degrees yesterday, no exaggeration, to 35, snow, wind and rain today Angry I skipped my run and hit the elliptical for 50 min. Hopefully I can get at least an easy and a tempo run in before the race Sat. Get well Zoom, races on Sat

          How you feelin' today, Kenny? Things have settled into my chest, a bit, but after being awake a while I think I *might* be OK for an easy run. I'll see how I feel in a few hours. I'm a bit asthmatic, so chest colds + asthma are generally pretty non-conducive to running. I just gotta lose this damned rodent on my back! Tongue

              I think I may need Trent to prescribe something for me because every time I run over 15 miles I get a cold. I’m a supplement maniac and I take lots of vitamin C, but its not helping anymore. I guess I’ll just carry a big box of Kleenex with me during the race. I haven't signed up for Milwaukee yet, but I'll probably do that before the end of April. After training for Green Bay in May, I'm pretty sure I do both - as long as I'm not too sick.

                Went for an easy 6 in the park after work today. Wind, snow flurries, and cold. On the up side, I feel quite a bit better. Yesterday, my lungs hurt like it was going to be a major setback. I think I'll be OK by Saturday. Get well Zoomy

                  No sign of relief...I think I may actually be getting worse. I'm really annoyed that I didn't wait and just register on race day. My best friend (backroadrunner) is no going to be able to do it, so I'd be running alone, anyhow (not that that's a big deal, but it's one more negative). Right now I think this may end up my first DNS/DNF Sad I'd be a lot more upset if this were a big goal race for me. Right now I'm just annoyed that I wasted $20 and probably won't have an opportunity to set a new 10 mile PR for '08. Angry
