Trade you my stomach for yours

Have had a stomach virus since late Thursday. Woke up Friday with chills a slight fever and haven't been able to eat much all day.

But...

I'm scheduled for an 11-miler Saturday morning.

And I want to run. Every. Mile.

Blink.

After my El Scorcho crash-and-burn, I've been anxious to get back on that long-run horse, so to speak. I won't be able to run long next weekend because I'll be in Austin for Noah's 1st birthday (which I wouldn't miss if you promised me a dozen sub 3-hour marathon finishes). So, if I miss Saturday, that'll be three weeks before my next long run.

I. Can't. Wait. That. Long.

So, I left work early today, drank tons of gatorade and bananas, and am now convalescing at home on a Friday night. Hoping my appetite comes back. Staying off my feet.

The good thing is I don't feel weak and I don't have a fever or the chills anymore.

But will I be ready for tomorrow?

Take it easy out there if you do your long run, it sure has been hot this week and really won't be very cool in the morning. Good luck!!

Hope you are feeling better soon! I know what you mean about not wanting to miss that long run. :( Good luck.

Is it wrong that I would consider trading my someday-kid's first birthday for some sub-three marathon finishes? Heck, just promise me a BQ (sub-3:40 for my AG) and you'd be surprised what I'd consider sacrificing.

Get well soon!!!

Jenny, welcome back from Belgium....
Laura...its never wrong to wish for sub 3-hour marathon finishes. You could always take your kid-to-be to the race with you.
