|What I expected.|
|What we had...no that is not me lol|
My throat was quickly getting worse and by the time we landed I was fully congested in the head and chest. We got to my sister in law's apartment and got ready for bed right away since she and I were leaving at 6:15am to head out for a turkey trot. I was excited since I have never run in Florida before. Well I got ZERO sleep. Everytime I would lay down I would get dizzy from the congestion in my head and I can not sleep sitting up. Well we left and picked up Denise's friend Laura and headed over the race. It was a pretty big one...just under 2000 runner/walkers. Maybe I am a race snob but I could not believe that there were people there selling muffins and smoothies. The race was for charity and I think those things should have been free.
Well for no sleep and being sick I didn't do too bad....pretty much my average. 34:04. The weather was awesome!!! Cold at the start but clear and sunny, I saw pictures of people at home at their turkey trots all bundled up!
We went back to shower and I passed out. Probably the worst idea ever because after I got up I was full blown sick. We got to my inlaws in about an hour and within 15 minutes I was in bed with the worst headache and slept off and on until morning. I completely missed thanksgiving. I couldn't take and medicine because I couldn't keep food down and that would have made it worse if I was vomiting too.
I am feeling a lot better now, even went to a few stores with Denise and my mother in law but I did cancel out trip to Busch Gardens tomorrow because I do not think rides are a good idea until I am totally better. I am super bummed about that because I will miss out on seeing my family but it is better than seeing them but being miserable.
I hope I feel better and can get out for a run or two in. I would love to take advantage of this great weather.
