I am home sick today. Friday night I started coughing a lot and woke up Saturday morning with no voice. It came back by late Saturday afternoon, just in time for me to meet Danica Patrick.
No big deal.
That's a lie. It was a total huge deal.
I had some readers that work for the team she races for contact me and they wanted to meet me, so they hooked The Hubs and I up with pit passes for the race on Saturday! We got to hang out on Pit Road with Danica and her pit crew. It was pretty awesome!
And some others from the race:
Thank you thank you THANK YOU Allison and Haley! The Hubs had a great time and we can't wait to come back!!
So by Saturday night my voice was starting to go again and yesterday it was nowhere to be found.
I couldn't talk at all and the entire Cougha Cabana Crew had taken up residency in my facial orifices.
I feel like complete and utter death.
So here I am, watching Live With Kelly and Michael and trying to get a post up before I go crawl back in bed and feel sorry for myself.
Needless to say I didn't get my 11 mile run in this weekend.
Not only because I was sick, but because I've been having some slight knee pain lately.
I'm really nervous about it because the Route 66 Marathon is in less than 2 weeks and the furthest I've ran is 10 miles up to this point.
I really want to get in my scheduled 12 miler this weekend, so I'm crossing my fingers and toes for no pain and no sickness.
I will be REALLY disappointed if I have to walk any at the race.
I've never dealt with an injury before, so I'm trying to stay positive, but with a race coming up where people are coming to see me run, there's a little pressure to be healthy.
I don't want to let these people down that are coming to cheer me on and look to me for inspiration. So that's my biggest fear.
And selfishly, I want to PR and finish that bad boy around 2 hours and 15 minutes. That would rock my face off.
I've got a foam roller coming and have been icing and taking it easy. Hope I'm healthy enough for a long run this weekend.
I'll keep you updated.
I've got MJ's FIRST FREAKIN' BIRTHDAY PARTY this weekend!!! So I've got a lot to get done this week for his party.
Can we pause for a moment to soak that in...
I am about to have a 1 year old in 5 days!!! Where did the time go!?!?!?
So many things coming up I can't keep up!!!
Not to mention I've got some BIG PLANS for the blog in the coming weeks for the holidays.
I can't wait to share more with you all!
You thought I'd leave without showing you my Monday morning outfit??
You must not know me that well...
Happy Monday y'all! Hope you're all feeling better than I am!!!
