I work with kids. I live with kids. I work with kids at church. I see kids at the grocery store. They are all around me! I was just thinking the other day that I was so lucky to have not gotten sick this year considering all the kids I am around... especially the 120 kindergartners at work!
And then I woke up with a prickly throat. Which developed into a cough. A big, ugly, mean cough.
I hate coughing.
Meanwhile, a friend of mine has been emailing me about participating in a half marathon at the end of March. She tells me it's lots of hills. I told her the most I'd run in a while was eight miles. She assured me that if I could do eight now, I'd have no problem doing this race. I told her I'd think about it and gave myself a January 31st deadline (the price increases after this!).
I've found out after thinking about it the past couple days, that one cannot make a decision like this when all one wants to do is sit on the couch and read a book.
Hopefully I'm better soon so I can think rationally about what I could be getting myself into!
