I have a cold

I know that is lame.

But I woke up with a runny nose this morning. I rode my bike and was annoyed by my nose that is now more faucet than nose. And you know. This is just the beginning of my fall allergies. Just in time for my race. Fabulous.

Big, giant sigh. Isn't that how it always seems to go though?

And, I know I had a sinus infection this time last year for a fact because my sister got married and I remember being sick the week before her wedding. I think she got married on the 29th of September. So I should have known better than to sign up for a race in September. There is a reason I don't usually do any races until the end of October. Fall allergies.

At least I still have 13 days to still train with my new handicap. As if just sucking in general wasn't enough of one.

Yay me!

I'll post something else when I am done feeling sorry for my poor pathetic self.


  1. I feel you on the allergies. I am hoping mine wont be as bad this year since I am getting the shots. I am actually considering wearing a breathe right strip for the bike/run during the half to open up the nostrils.

  2. I only have a month of training before the allergy season starts to hit Las Vegas...damn Mulberry trees and Olive trees pollens! I'm not looking forward to the allergies...should I thank you for reminding me or what?
