As you know, I was registered and ready to run a 5K last Saturday. I had been fighting a sore throat for a couple of days prior to the race and woke up on race day feeling much worse and wasn’t able to run. I was very disappointed since this race was the one I had been running during my training the past few weeks. I took it easy on Saturday and ended up staying in bed all day Sunday. Yesterday I decided to go to the doctor. I have a sinus infection, ear infection, and bronchitis. So it’s a good thing I didn’t push myself to try to run on Saturday. The doctor said I’ll miss this Saturday’s 5K as well. She said I might feel like going to watch but not to run. And since I won’t be able to run any during the week, I definitely wouldn’t be ready to run a race on Saturday. It looks like I’ll be taking it easy for the next several days. Well, ‘taking it easy’ has a different meaning when there’s a 15-month old little energizer bunny to care for! Thankfully she’s obsessed with her new Elmo DVD so as long as it’s on, she’ll stay in the living room with me and play. So while I’m taking a break these next few days, I hope you’re all getting out there and finding a calorie-burning activity that you enjoy doing. Spend some time with your family this Easter weekend having an egg hunt. It’ll get you outside in the fresh air, burn a few calories, and give you a chance to enjoy being together. But most importantly, remember why we celebrate Easter. Without the resurrection of Jesus Christ, we would be lost for all eternity. If you want to know more about this, please ask a Christian friend or family member, a pastor, or even leave me a comment and I’ll be glad to help. Hope you all have a wonderful – and healthy – week!
