I’ve had a blast, really. Up til now.
Yesterday I woke up feeling a little off, but for being in Vegas I have been getting good rest. Just because your in Las Vegas doesn’t mean you have to stay up all night and party. Something just didn’t feel right. I knew it. So, from the time I woke up yesterday until I woke up today, my body has slowly but surely turned into complete sickness.
First it was bit of tightness in my chest, a tickle. Then it started feeling heavy, the coughing began. A few hours later the throat started in on the tickle and now, you guessed it a sore throat. Total and complete congestion in my head now as well, since I just woke up.
I need to get in the rental car and go grab some cold medicine. This really sucks, but I won’t let it ruin the rest of my vacation. I’ll just deal with it somehow.
Quite honestly, I am not surprised by this. I am seldom sick, so getting sick on vacation really does suck. I earned this much needed time off. I worked a ton, I deserve a healthy vacation. Working so much, marathon training, five hour plane ride, thousands of reasons I could have gotten sick.
Ugh! I just need this to go away quickly, because I have Big Cottonwood Marathon to run in 10 days. I can’t afford to be sick for that. Not one bit!
