Do I attempt to run the half marathon on Sunday morning at 7:30....or NOT?!
Last weekend I was down in Walnut Creek, CA for Brian and Mary's wedding...what a blessing to be part of each other's LIVES. I loved our BEET bridesmaid dresses and catching up with students from last year's Mexico mission trip. I loved fun-with-MAC-eyeshadows and going into the city with our matching "Team Gleason" t-shirts for the bachelorette party. I loved the new friends, and I loved seeing the oldies who are dear to my heart: Jenn and Chris, Jamelyn and Aunt Kathy...
So with that, I rolled into Mill Pond Loop at 5:30 pm, and moved 1/2 an hour later. By the next morning I was feeling the ache. The sickness. The soar throat-runny nose-fever...so you can rest medicine? So with a fog cloud quickly closing in on my head, after Danny helped me with the last of the big items, we both grabbed a couch and took naps...and I never got up. Two movies later (The Wedding Date and Mr. and Mrs. Smith), I officially had Kleenex stuffed up my nose and was resorting to text messaging on the Zach Morris since my voice didn't work.
I know I'm supposed to rest but sometimes life just takes you by the hold and won't let go.
And the moral of the story is that I haven't run in a week, and the race is less than 48 hours away. So. Do I run. To run or not to run...that is the question... Your thoughts?
