A JOURNEY IN RUNNING, LIVING, LAUGHING AND LOVING

Back in the land of the living

Greetings! It's lovely to be able to say I *think* I may be kicking this terrible sickness to the curb. Considering I've been sick for a full week now, this news is most welcome to me, my students, and the dear people who have been taking care of me for days on end. 

Let me start by saying, I typically don't get sick. I work in a profession where germs are everywhere and mutating by the second, but somehow, I usually manage to avoid them. I'd love to think it's my awesome genes, but I think it has more to do with luck. 

I am not a good sick person. I hate being out of commission. I hate feeling like I have no energy. I know probably everyone feels this way, but I feel like it's extra tough for me. At school, I can do my job, but at home, I'm a terrible sicko. I whine. And I pout. And I generally feel like a slug. It's unattractive. And it makes it really difficult to keep up with no negativity Lent. 

Tonight was my first workout in a week, and I'm so glad I was able to move my body and feel aliveish again. I'm hoping tomorrow I'll wake up with lots of energy and a desire to resume life 100%, but we'll see. Baby steps in the right direction. 

For now, I will continue taking my terrible tasting cough medicine, and resting as much as I can. Here's to good health!
