Sick of being sick...

I have been sick the last couple of days, including Christmas day, which really sucked.....nothing too severe, just a head and chest cold, enough to drain my energy and make me stuffy...

Anyway, what really stinks about being sick is that we've been having unusually warm weather lately, and I can't run.......yesterday (Christmas day) it got to mid 50's and then today we hit an time record high of 67 degrees....yes, in Kansas...in late December.....so, I am just now starting to feel better and it's 9pm at night and still over 60 degrees.....and a look at the forecast says that tomorrow morning sometime while I am sleeping it is supposed to dip down to 18 degrees....(not unusual for Kansas weather)....and we are leaving tomorrow to head to Illinois for my grandma's funeral........so, I think I am going for a night run, in shorts, woo-hoo....anyone care to join me?

can't wait to wear shorts again! I think we're getting the same warm up here for the next 2 days, then it'll get "seasonal" again. Safe travels...

I wore shorts tonight... but it was cold and rainy. Have fun with your run.

The weather this morning is making me very mad.. I want to run!! So sorry you are sick over the holidays that's a real bummer.

Thanks for the comment on my grandma, I wish she was closer so I could visit her more often.

Sorry to hear about your grandma's passing though it sounds like it was a blessing since she was suffering. Bummer about being sick, too, especially when the weather's nice. Boy, what I wouldn't do for a little of that weather (it was -3 here yesterday!).

I completely sympathize. I have been sick since Christmas Eve with some throat virus and nasty sinus stuff and the weather was beautiful. I got exactly zero runs in...grrr how frustrating!
