It is a beautiful, bright spring day! The birds are chirping, flirting, singing and doing the "birding" nasty.
I've been on a flu induced taper this week.
You know the story, wake up on Monday and soldier your way into work because, well, you have to....make it until 10am and just as you turn that sickly colour of green, you make the only wise decision you can make....get home while the getting's good!!
Withholding all the gory details, I went into work on Tuesday and ran Tuesday night. Well it went downhill from there. By Thursday, let's just say I probably made a better looking corpse than live human.
Friday was the only day to date that I was able to hold any sort of sustenance in my body.
Today will be spent outside in the sun collecting the necessary gamma rays from the sun and overdosing on vitamin D from old Sol as well....rest assured I will have my cowboy hat on and my 60 sunblock.
I think my running shoes may still be on a hiatus this weekend (well, I may try to get a nice slow 10K in), however, my long run in town on Sunday will go by the wayside.
Monday is the Boston Marathon!
Several of our fellow blogger's are heading to Boston as I type this up....Marathon Dude Bill, and Nitmos, to them, best wishes, run strong and make Great Memories....plus share them with us upon your return!!! (I know I've missed somebody...sorry).
My personal friend Alan is heading for Boston today. He is the only Canadian man in his age group to be running the marathon. Alan is a spritely 75!! (we will be talking about Alan later....)
Best Wishes Alan!!!
Enjoy your day, I have to get out into the sun and rake up the oak leaves....
Life's fun if you don't weaken...
