Yesterday afternoon my throat started to feel really scratchy and my head started to hurt...what a time to come down with a summer cold! So today I am staying home and resting and trying to kick this or get over it quickly before Sunday's race. Feel ok, but the throat is still a bit raw and my ears are plugged up and have some body aches. Lots of vitamin C, echinechea and rest on tap for today and possible staying home tomorrow as well. Mind over matter....I will not be sick, I will not be sick!
On a good note, the IF airport opened today after a month long closure for runway repairs. So my flight to Minneapolis on Friday is on! Yeah!
