I’ve been coughing and mildly wheezy for a few days, so I went to the doctor today to get a refill on my inhaler, but I left with a z-pack and a diagnosis. There are still nine days to feel better before race day, so I think that will be plenty of time and I’m not very concerned. It’s kind of funny though–just when I thought I couldn’t feel any less prepared to run another marathon…BOOM, surprise bronchitis!
I decided to skip a baseball game tonight with my family because it’s cold and rainy out, but Greg kindly brought a friend in my place and kept me posted…through his picture diary, it’s just like I was there. What a brother.
The car ride with Greg, Laura, and my replacement sib Johnny.
Greg’s new BFF, Belle. She is a “Peagle”–a pink eagle, according to the Florence Freedom website, and a diva. Instead of talking, she expresses herself by “flirting with cute players and fans.” Watch out, Greg.
I’m not sure if I have ever mentioned this before, but in high school (junior high?), we took one of those career aptitude tests, and my #1 career was a minor league baseball mascot. I am totally serious. Did you know that was a possible outcome in a career aptitude test?
I’m home for one more day of relaxing, reading, and eating ice cream (ice cream is good for all illnesses, I think) before I head back to school tomorrow afternoon for the start of summer semester. The week has gone by way too quickly and it’s been nice to spend time at home and with my family, but I’m ready to have a to-do list and things to study. AND I get to see Ryan tomorrow for the whole weekend!
Have you taken a career aptitude test? What did you get?
