Or I should say "MB brings the flu..." but that's for later.
For now... I had a request about this strange "MB" person that seems to be following me everywhere and running my marathons. Well, MB is "MaryBeth" or "Crazy Lady" or just "Mom." Yep! My mom runs most of my marathons too! (*AWWWW*) She travels with me, stays with me at hotels and makes sure her baby gets fed while traveling!!! Very important! It's nice because almost 3 years ago, upon graduation of college, I left NY and didn't go back. Now, even though I live so far away, I get to see her 2 or 3 weekends a month. Crazy, right? Totally
Well it's funny somebody asked me about her last night because... TODAY happens to be her BIRTHDAY!!!!
Happy Birthday MB!!!
MB not only shares the same marathons, hotels, and overall super-model-esque looks-- errrr-- she also shares GERMS with me!!! She brought a Flu this weekend that she picked up from my "Pit Crew Chief"-- yeah so I give my parents fun names, who doesn't??-- and gave it to me!!
Yep, I have the FLU! I've been sick all week. But, this is the year of running smart!!! If I feel sick or rundown I rest! If I feel achy I give it a break and ice! So this week I'm resting, much against my nature. I just started feeling a little better today and I'm hoping to keep it up. This weekend is my birthday celebration weekend since I'll be away next weekend for a--duh-- marathon.
Anyways, hope you're all having a wonderful time running-- I'm having a wonderful time with my night time nyquil and sleep! :)
-Happy Running ZzZzZzZzzZZZzzz
