Well, I just got back from Orlando and wasn't able to run the Disney Marathon. The first day that I arrived there with my aunt and cousin, I was feeling just fine and suddenly became very sick. I had aches, a fever, sore throat, a cold, and a terrible cough. My aunt, who is an RN told me that I needed to go to an urgent care clinic. I went to a nearby clinic and the doctor told me that I most likely became so sick because of all of the germs on the airplane. So, here I am back in Massachusetts with a sinus and upper respiratory infection. The doctor prescribed me codeine cough syrup and biaxin for 10 days. I am feeling a lot better now, but there was no way I was going to force myself to run 26.2 when I could barely get out of bed.
I was able to make the best out of it, and laugh with my cousin and aunt, but it did really stink to go to Florida and not be able to run. I am itching to go back once I feel better and run a marathon. I am thinking about the ING Miami Marathon at the end of the month, but first I have to feel better!!
I have officially started to raise money for the Center for Grieving Children in Portland, Maine. Here is the link to my donation page: http://www.gifttool.com/athon/MyFundraisingPage?ID=1226&AID=1432&PID=181086
Thanks so much everyone for all of your support. I'll be back on the roads hopefully soon!!
