I'm suffering from a case of the sniffles right now and it doesn't bode too well for the Shape Men's Health Night run this Saturday. I hate falling sick cos I take like forever to recover. I got this passed on from my older boy who just like any kid that didn't want to lose his coolness by having to use a raincoat, decided to walk home in the rain last Friday and ended up falling sick.
As much as I tried to stay far away from him, I guess them silly germs just decided to find me and latch on to me ... arrgghhh, damn you germs! It's been progressively getting worse since this morning and now my nose leaks worse than a drippy faucet ... siggghhh ... The rain today, though very welcomed didn't entirely help matters for me.
This thing better go away by this weekend cos the last time I ran with the flu was during the Nike City 10K run and let me tell you that running with the flu is like asking for trouble. The 10K felt like it took forever to complete with me cursing myself all the way for trying to be macho and thinking I can run even while sick.
The thing is, I don't want to miss the run this weekend cos it's wifey's anniversary run. This was the run that got her hooked on running a year ago and I wouldn't miss running it with her for the world. Last year, she took her first steps into running by joining the fun run and this year she's taking part in the 12K run with me and I'm excited for her :D
So, flu or not, rain or shine, earthquake or tsunami, I'll be there so I'd better get well real quick!
