Best to do it with a Jewish Mother! Did my body and mind purposely do this knowing it's the best place to break down?? Probably! Not that I was terribly sick, but a chest cold took over me for about three days while I was visiting my Mom. She suspected something when I asked for a blanket while we were watching TV. Before I knew it, I had an echinacea pill, a Vit C pill, hot tea with honey and lemon and her favorite "dickie" shoved in front of me.
I finally ran again on Friday....5 miles....felt so ready to do more but I didnt want to push it as I have 13 miles tomw with my group and a Half Marathon on Monday. I highly doubt I'll make the cutoff time, 2.5 hours, but I'm going to enjoy myself.
When I got back to Chicago, I got a call from one of my girlfriends that there's an extra entry into the NYC Marathon floating around if I was interested for a mere $250. I think I'll wait until I make it in by lottery. That will be either next year or, for sure, by 2008. Gonna kick some butt on those bridges!!
