Over the last week, I’ve been coughing like seal. The only issue is that instead of being a cute loveable seals in cartoons, I’m one of those huge blubbery ones you see in the zoo that smell like the inside of the neighbor’s house who has 8 cats. ARFFFF ARFFFF ARRFFF. It was pretty bad. I lost my voice for the better part of a day. I LOST MY VOICE. To think that the world was denied my witty observations for an entire day. It would be like 24 hours with out air, or wine, or skittles. Impossible to think about.
The fact that I haven’t ran is incredibly troubling because I have a pretty important half marathon in a week and a half (Shiner Half Marathon) . My half PR of 1:29 is REALLY in need of destroying. I’d try to take at least 2 min off of that – likely closer to 5 if I could handle it. But, the reality is that with this cold I won’t be 100% yet so, just like ladies night at the bingo hall, a bit of restraint is needed.
It was my son’s 2nd birthday this weekend so I was hosting my little sister and dad and eating more cupcakes than I ever thought humanly possible. Did you know that you can put enough frosting on the top of a bunch of cupcakes to make it look like a regular cake??? It was like someone told me that not only can you run, but you can run naked. Talk about putting together two awesome things all wrapped into one.
I want to do a post all by itself for his birthday, so look for that tomorrow - as well as an update on what I am sure will be a cough filled run tomorrow morning! Until then, I need to buy WAAYY more socks.
What a minute....there is frosting...ON MY TOY!?!?
